Eagle Plains Resources (TSX-V: EPL)has mobilized field crews to carry out exploration activity on itsVulcanproject located near Kimberley, BC. The property is considered to hold significant potential to host silver-lead-zinc mineralization similar to that at the world-class Sullivan deposit, located 30km to the east. The Vulcan project is owned 100% by Eagle Plains and carries no underlying royalties or encumbrances.

2017 work will be carried out by TerraLogic Exploration of Cranbrook, B.C. under the supervision of Mike McCuaig, P.Geo. Fieldwork is follow-up to a successful 2016 program which consisted of geological mapping and prospecting, geochemical and ground-based geophysical surveys.


A total of 539 soil and 57 rock samples were collected throughout the course of work.

The 2016 program resulted in the re-interpretation and relocation of the surface projection of the Lower Middle Aldridge Contact (LMC)-the stratigraphic time horizon which hosts the world-class Sullivan deposit, and the identification of a pronounced, 1.6km-long coincident lead/zinc anomaly which overlies the inferred trace of the LMC.

Current exploration activity is designed to further define drill targets and to test geochemical and geophysical features outlined earlier on the property. The project is currently permitted for drilling.
