(TSX-V: SMN; OTCQB: SMREF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition from Teck Resources Limited (Teck) of the 8,964-hectare porphyry copper-molybdenum CR property, located contiguous to Sun Summit’s 43,000 hectare Buck property in central B.C.

There is a pre-existing 0.5% NSR royalty to the original landowner which can be re-purchased for $10,000,000. In accordance with Canadian securities laws, the shares are subject to a four month hold period expiring on October 13, 2023.

About the Buck Project

The Buck Project is situated in a historic mining district near Houston, B.C., with excellent nearby infrastructure that allows for year-round, road-accessible exploration. 

The project is host to the Buck Main intermediate-sulfidation epithermal-related gold-silver-zinc system. Most of the mineralization drilled to date at Buck Main consists of long, continuous zones of disseminated and breccia-hosted, bulk tonnage-style gold-silver-zinc. Vein-hosted, high-grade mineralization has also been intersected near the center of Buck Main. 

Exploration at the Buck Project is focused on investigating the lateral and vertical extent of gold-silver-zinc mineralization at the Buck Main system, and to define additional drill targets across the entire land package through systematic exploration programs.
