Projects:Big Kidd Property
2019 Drill Program
- 2019 drilling has successfully expanded the boundaries of the mineralized Big Kidd Breccia Zone to the North, South, West and at depth;
- BK-19-009 was designed to test for a deeper-seated source of mineralization, as indicated by increasing alteration and chalcopyrite:pyrite ratios at depth in the 2019 drilling. The hole intersected a second mineralized breccia body from 420-644.3m (EOH) with stronger and still increasing alteration, but unfortunately was terminated in mineralization with strong alteration due to difficulties with a deviated hole.

Investors are cautioned that the exploration target at Big Kidd is an early-stage exploration prospect, conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
Independent Director of Jiulian, Scott Dorion, P.Geo., is the designated Qualified Person of the Company as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who supervised the work program and preparation of the technical data on this website.
All drill core was logged, photographed, cut and sampled by Jiulian Resources Inc. personnel. Prior to shipment to ALS Global’s sample preparation facility in Kamloops, BC, certified reference material standards, blanks, and pulp duplicates were inserted at a ratio of approximately 1 in every 20 drill core samples. Samples were prepared in Kamloops by crushing the entire sample to 70% passing -2mm, riffle splitting off 1kg and pulverizing the split to better than 85% passing 75 microns. After preparation in Kamloops, the prepared pulps were shipped to ALS Global’s analytical laboratory in North Vancouver, BC. The gold assays are determined by Au-AA26 fire assay method which reports results in parts per million (ppm) (equivalent to grams per tonne (g/t)).
Base metal assays are first determined using the ME-MS61 method (four acid digestion with ICP-MS finish), which reports results as parts per million (ppm). All analyses that reach the overlimits of ME-MS61 are reanalyzed with an Ore Grade method. The analytical results are verified with the application of industry standard Quality Control and Quality Assurance (QA-QC) procedures.
Property Overview and Previous Work
The Big Kidd Property is located in the Nicola Mining Division of British Columbia immediately northeast of Aspen Grove, approximately 25km southeast of the City of Merritt, and 250km northeast of the City of Vancouver.
The Big Kidd property comprises of four mineral tenures totaling 4,056 hectares or 40.56 square kilometres. The past exploration work dating back to the early 1900’s has identified many showings in the ‘Aspen Grove Copper Camp’.
The property is Located within the Central Volcanic Facies of the Nicola Group, a narrow belt of alkaline volcanic and subvolcanic intrusive rocks, which are host to numerous alkalic porphyry Cu-Au deposits including both the Copper Mountain Mine south of Big Kidd and the Iron Mask Batholith (Afton, Ajax) to the north.
The Upper Triassic intrusions of the Big Kidd complex are consanguineous with property volcanics, having intruded their own volcanic pile. The alkaline complex features intrusives of monzonite, monzodiorite, diorite, and syenomonzonite composition, hosted within intermediate-mafic volcanic flows, tuffs and volcaniclastics. Intrusions trend southeast, with the elliptical Big Kidd breccia body exposed over aroughly 300 x 600-meter area. The breccia pipe is believed to represent a sub-verticalvolcanic neck dominated by fragments of Nicola Group volcanics and microdiorite to microsyenodiorite, and monzonite to syenomonzonite intrusives.The property straddles a triple fault junction of the Kentucky-Alleyne, Allison and Quilchena faults.West to southwest trending faults have been interpreted to lie between the Big Kidd and Big Siouxtargets and represent areas of increased alteration and fluid flow.
