Ximen Mining Corp -
The historic Cariboo-Amelia mine recovered 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc

Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCMKTS:XXMMF) said exploration has started at its historic Amelia gold project near Mt. Baldy in British Columbia in a bid to generate new targets for trenching and drilling.

The results of this prospecting and mapping will be used to apply for permitting for drilling later this season, the firm told investors in a statement on Monday.

Mining at the Amelia gold property goes back to the late 1800s and the area, originally known as Camp McKinney, is host to 15 known polymetallic and precious metal mineral occurrences. The historic Cariboo-Amelia mine recovered 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc.

"The majority of the Amelia property is under-explored by modern methods, and there is excellent potential to define gold resources on the Cariboo-Amelia vein below the historical mine workings and along strike of the historic mining area," Ximen told investors.

"Aside from the main Cariboo-Amelia vein, there are parallel vein structures that have not been adequately examined or evaluated. There are also other near-surface targets that can be tested using geochemistry and trenching. Exploration drilling will be designed to define and outline mineral resources near-surface initially, then test below the historical mine workings, and finally test along strike and parallel to the Cariboo-Amelia vein," it added.

In addition, geochemical surveys will be carried out to the west of past surveys to identify new targets, the company said.

The Cariboo-Amelia mineral deposit system is made up of a number of different gold-bearing quartz veins scattered throughout the property and nearby claims.

The area has exceptional infrastructure available, including natural gas pipelines and high-voltage hydroelectric transmission lines that cross the property, the firm noted.
