About Blind Creek
Blind Creek is a Vancouver-based junior resource company that has been listed on the TSX Venture Exchange for 14 years. The Company's primary focus is zinc-lead silver, and more recently gold and silver exploration and development in British Columbia, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. The Company's flagship property is the Blende Project in north-central Yukon, one of the largest undeveloped zinc-lead-silver deposits in Western Canada. More recently the company has acquired a 100% interest in the historic and fully-permitted Engineer Gold Mine, situated 32 km southwest of Atlin, B.C. While the Company will remain focused on developing its key Blende Project, the Company recently tripled the Engineer Gold Mine property size to 11,556 hectares and is preparing a NI 43-101 technical report. The Company is planning a 2017 work program that is to include soil geochemical surveys, trenching, geological mapping, sampling, diamond drilling and further assessment of small-scale mining and production at the fully permitted mine.
