Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCMKTS:XXMMF) revealed it has increased its ground once again, snapping up a property in British Columbia which includes several historic gold-silver mines and prospects.

The new asset is near Ymir in the south of the province and consists of 11 claims covering around 1,600 hectares. The small mines include the Protection (Goodenough), Blackcock, Arizona, Ymir-Good Hope, Commodore and also part of the Ymir historic mines.

At the Protection mine, for example, 10,719 ounces of gold and 82,824 ounces of silver were generated historically.

Ximen paid 600,000 of its shares to an arm's length vendor to acquire the property.

With this latest acquisition, Ximen's land package in the Nelson-Ymir-Salmo area of British Columbia now amounts to around 16,495 hectares, the resource group noted in a statement.

The new claims also cover four other prospects with similar styles of mineralization including the Ymir Belle prospect, which saw small production, Ximen added.

It also includes a tailings deposit from the historic Wilcox mine - a small, high-grade gold producer with a mill that processed around 14,555 tonnes of ore between 1900 and 1940.

A report in 2005, by Vancouver-based Crucible Engineering Services, put tonnage at the Wilcox mine tailings deposit at 12,387 tonnes, based on depth and specific gravity measurements.

The in-situ gold potential was then estimated as 1,230 ounces of gold. An average gold recovery rate of 80% was projected based on metallurgical test results available.

The average grade of the tailings deposit was estimated at 3.09 grams gold per tonne (g/t).

Ximen shares advanced 12.73% to C$0.62 each in Toronto.
