The River Jordan Lead Zinc Silver Deposit

Executive Summary of Mineral Resources


The Jordan River (King Fissure) deposit, located on the northeastern slopes of Mount Copeland near Revelstoke, British Columbia, contains significant mineral resources. The primary commodities found in this area are zinc, lead, and silver. The deposit is part of the Shuswap Metamorphic Complex and is characterized by stratabound, disseminated, and massive sulphide layers.

Geological Setting

The deposit is located within a series of gneissic domal structures along the eastern margin of the Shuswap Metamorphic Complex. The mineralized zones are typically less than 1 to 6 metres thick and consist of fine-grained sphalerite, pyrrhotite, galena, and pyrite. The mineralization is syngenetic and exhalative in nature, associated with a Proterozoic to Paleozoic paragneiss assemblage.

Exploration History

Exploration activities in the area date back to the mid-1950s, with significant work including trenching, bulk sampling, drilling, geological mapping, and geophysical surveys conducted over the decades. Recent exploration efforts have been carried out by Silver Phoenix Resources, including airborne and ground electromagnetic surveys and diamond drilling.
