Academy Metals Inc. is pleased to announce that the Company has staked an additional 530 hectares of mineral claims in the Phillips Arm Gold Camp, where gold exploration and production began in the 1800’s. These additional claims are known as the Hewitt Point Project, and adjoin the Company’s Margurete Gold Project.

Detailed project informations:
Through an analysis of historic data, the Company believes that the new claims cover what may be a mineralized subparallel splay to the fault hosting mineralization at the Doratha Morton Mine, 2.6km to the southwest and which is en-echelon with the Company’s principal holdings in the area. The claims also contain the contact between the intrusives and volcaniclastic rocks that hosts gold mineralization at the historic Alexandra, Enid-Julie, and Doratha Morton Mines—all of which are within 3.0km to the south and southwest of Hewitt Point. Historic gold production in the area averaged 0.42 oz/ton gold. The Hewitt Point Project will be explored in conjunction with the Margurete Gold Project.
Of particular interest, first pass prospecting by Long Lac Mineral Exploration, under the supervision of F.D. Forgeron Ph D. Geochemistry, identified and mapped two sulfidic rock samples, anomalous in gold, at Hewitt Point. A massive sulfide sample (F-29), located near a historic mine adit assayed 6.2g/t Au and over 2% Cu. A pyritic quartz sample (F-9-2) was obtained at a shear zone near a historic mine shaft at the south end of Hewitt Point and assayed 6.95g/t Au, 1300ppm Mo and over 50ppm Ag. Several anomalous gold-in-soil zones were also identified in Fogeron’s 1981 program.
