Hi-View Receives Exploration Plan and Historical Data Compilation from Apex Geoscience Ltd.

July 5th, 2023, Vancouver, British Columbia, Hi-View Resources Inc. (‘Hi-View’ or the ‘Company’) (CSE: HVW) (Frankfurt: B63) announces it has received and reviewed a detailed data compilation from APEX Geoscience Ltd. (“APEX”) detailing historical work completed on its Toodoggone district “Golden Stranger” and “Lawyer Group” Projects that are contiguous to Benchmark Metals Inc. “Lawyers” Project and Thesis Gold Inc. “Ranch” Project. Both Benchmark Metals and Thesis Gold have recently announced an agreement to merge into one of the largest precious metals development and exploration companies in the district, totaling 32,400 hectares of consolidated and contiguous land hosting multi million ounces of gold discoveries. Hi-View’s APEX historical data compilation includes a phase 1 work recommendation to be completed prior to the planned upcoming fully permitted drill program.

This recently announced merger of Hi-View’s neighboring companies has the potential to enhance Benchmark’s current 3.14 million ounces (oz) of gold equivalent (AuEq) measured and indicated (M&I) mineral resources and 415,000 oz AuEq inferred mineral resources1 at Lawyers with high-grade, near-surface mineralization at Thesis Gold’s Ranch Project.

Claims Location Map

Hi-View Resources has a highly prospective land package of 9,139.57 hectares contiguous to both companies land holdings with multiple high priority targets and historical drilling having been conducted on less than 1% of the property and returning up to 11.55g/t Au over 10 meters core length at the Golden Stranger target area2.

Howard Milne, CEO of Hi-View, commented “APEX Geoscience has extensive experience in the Toodoggone District of British Columbia, and we are excited to have designed a work program based on their recommendations. This exploration program will give us an opportunity to generate more high priority targets prior to the planned upcoming drill program on our highly prospective project portfolio, surrounded by Benchmark Metal’s which is now the largest undeveloped gold resource in the district.”

Summary of Historical Work:

Historical Drilling

  • 29 diamond drill holes on Golden Stranger prospect during 1987 and 19882.
  • Significant intersections:
    • DH87-GS008: 4.286 ppm Au over 9.4 m core length including 20.5 ppm Au and 20.92 ppm Ag from 24.4-25.6 m
    • DH88-GS019: 11.54 ppm Au and 11.637 ppm Ag from 121.04-124.09 m
    • D88-GS025: 6.693 ppm Au over 7.6 m core length including 14.4 ppm Au and 14.54 ppm Ag from 79.88-81.4 m and 11.314 ppm Au and 11.51 ppm Ag from 81.40-82.93 m
    • DH87-GS015: 1.56 ppm Au over 21.6 m core length including 4.217 ppm Au from 23.8-25.6 m and 4.11 ppm Au from 39.9-41.8 m

Historical Sampling

  • 3 Minfile occurrences located on Property:
    • Golden Stranger – Au bearing breccia-quartz, vein-shear system- trenching, drilling
    • New Law – grab sample 28.7 g/t Ag, 0.029 % Cu from zone of silicification and quartz veinlets
    • Lawyers Pass
  • Very limited on-Property sampling has been completed.


  • Airborne magnetics survey flown at 100 m line spacing.
  • Golden Stranger claims not covered.

Summary of Findings:

Golden Stranger

  • Mineralization in core and on surface consistent with other regional mineralized trends. Limited historical data apart from drilling.

Lawyers East (South Block)


Golden Stranger

  • Geology in the highland western edge is non favourable Sustut Sediments. Most of the work should focus on the Hazelton Volcanics in the plateau/valley settings and would include targeting Lawyers and Ranch style low to high sulphidation epithermal mineralization.
  • For the original Golden Stranger block it is recommended to conduct either airborne or ground mag/VLF electromagnetics.
  • Near to the Black Lake intrusive suite to the south, the targets may also include skarn and Tertiary Kemess type epithermal/porphyry style mineralization.

Lawyers East (South Block)

  • The South Block looks to be entirely hosted within the Black Lake Intrusive suite based upon the regional geology. The geology around this area is highly irregular and not quite as it has been mapped. The geophysics does seem to also support that. There can be remnants of Hazelton volcanics, sediments with skarn mineralization and epithermal alteration.
  • Whether the geology is remnants of Hazelton volcanics or in fact various intrusives from the Black Lake suite there is good potential based upon the structures and the results nearby to date for epithermal mineralization and potentially skarn and porphyry style mineralization.

Estimated Budget

Wildlife Management Plan

    –    $15,000 estimated to complete the Plan.

Surface Sampling

  • Four samplers at an average rate of 25 samples per day, 1,250 total samples, 13 days of soil sampling.
  • Total estimated cost of $205,500


  • Two crews of two with average coverage of 6 line km per day, 313 line km, 26 days for survey.

Total estimated cost of $195,000

Program total with ~10 % contingency: ~$450,000
