Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCMKTS:XXMMF) has outlined its exploration plans for British Columbia this summer, with drilling in some areas is expected to start next month.

At the Nelson-Salmo area, the company has started compiling historic exploration data and targets for trenching and drilling are being identified, namely gold-silver veins and gold-copper skarn and porphyry-style mineralization.

At the group's flagship Brett epithermal gold project near the city of Vernon, it is working with the Ministry of Mines to review and approve a proposed program, which includes 200 metres of underground drift along the Main Zone followed by underground diamond drilling, it said.

Near Tulameen, approved work for Ximen's Treasure Mountain Silver property includes trenching and drilling of gold, silver, and copper-molybdenum targets, which will be started after the snow has melted.

Meanwhile, at the Greenwood camp, annual permit updates are underway so that work can begin, while priority targets are being identified for the Providence, Amelia Gold Mine and Bud-Elk properties. Permit applications will be submitted for Amelia and Bud-Elk, said Ximen.

Work planned for the Quartz Mountain and Hughes properties includes data compilation, field reconnaissance and permitting for trenching and drilling. These assets near the city of Cranbrook were included with one of the Nelson properties acquired this year, noted Ximen.

Further updates on drilling start dates and an update on progress at the Kenville gold mine will follow soon, Ximen added.
