Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCQB:XXMMF) said its option partner New Destiny Mining Corp (CVE:NED) has completed trenching, road building, drill site construction and rock chip sampling at the Treasure Mountain Silver property in British Columbia.

This work has been completed at two target areas, namely the Superior (Lucky Todd) and Railroad Creek prospects.

These areas cover copper-gold anomalies, which were identified during previous work programs.

Work began at the Superior prospect, where a previous sample returned 8.81 grams per tonne (g/t) gold.

Drill sites were prepared and 60 metres of excavator trenching was completed exposing a number of intrusive-hosted quartz veinlets mineralized with pyrite and chalcopyrite.

Work then moved on to the Railroad Creek prospect -- the site of at least eight historic mine adits that explored copper mineralization hosted in diorite-granodiorite.

Rock geochemical anomalies for copper (up to 8,940 ppm (parts per million) copper or 0.89% copper) were previously identified at this site.

Trenching completed

A total of 890 metres of access track/bush road were constructed, 15 metres of trenching completed, and two drill sites were built.

A mineralized zone containing pyrite and chalcopyrite was exposed over a length of 12 metres, extending from an historic mine adit. Rock channel sampling was conducted at both sites and samples were submitted for analysis.

The next stage of exploration will focus on the Jamie Creek area, where a number of gold vein targets have been identified, with previous sampling returning values up to 11.3 g/t gold, said New Destiny.

The project, which covers 10,700 hectares, is optioned to New Destiny Mining for staged cash and stock payments.
