At Providence, Ximen's ground surrounds the historic Providence mine, which operated intermittently between 1893 and 1973. It generated 5,884 ounces of gold, over 1.3 million ounces of silver, 183 tonnes of lead and 118 tonnes of zinc.

Previous investigations identified the historic mine on a polymetallic silver vein target along with a number of outcropping sulphide showings with copper-gold-silver skarn and/or vein-type mineralization.

"Following completion of compilation work and initial field examinations, permit applications will be made for the nearby Amelia and Bud-Elk properties where gold-quartz veins and gold-copper skarn mineralization has been explored and mined historically. Trenching and drilling is planned for these properties," the Vancouver-based group said in a statement.

As the season progresses, work will also be carried out at the Brett epithermal gold property, the Treasure Mountain silver property, the Quartz Mountain gold property, and the Hughes copper-silver property, it added.

In Toronto, Ximen shares added nearly 16% on the day to C$0.73 each.
