About the Rock & Roll Property
Etruscus Resources Corp. is a Vancouver-based exploration company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Rock & Roll Property situated in northwest British Columbia's prolific Golden Triangle. The property was originally staked in 1988 on behalf of the Prime Resources Group, one of Murray Pezim's companies.
In 1990, exploration (line cutting, geochemical soil sampling, mapping, prospecting, ground geophysical surveys and trenching) led to the discovery of polymetallic, silver-gold-zinc-lead-copper massive sulphide mineralization that became known as the Black Dog Zone. Notably, the surface expression of the Black Dog Zone is readily apparent in the geochemical soil sample and ground geophysical data.
In the period immediately following the discovery of the Black Dog Showing, Prime drilled 94 holes, totalling 11,063.2 metres in length, in the Black Dog and SRV zone area. Subsequently, 20 holes totalling 3,321.6 meters were drilled by several junior companies, mainly to expand the known mineralized zones. No work has been done on the property since it was returned to the vendors in 2012. Rock & Roll was then acquired by Etruscus in early 2018. On August 3, 2018, Etruscus reported a current NI 43-101 compliant Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate for the Rock & Roll deposit.
Etruscus Resources Corp. is a Vancouver-based exploration company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Rock & Roll Property situated in northwest British Columbia's prolific Golden Triangle. Etruscus trades under the symbol ETR on the Canadian Securities Exchange and currently has 19,394,001 shares issued and outstanding.
