News Release


August 22, 2017


Shamrock Enterprises Inc.  (“Shamrock” or the “Company”), a Canadian mineral exploration company, is pleased to announce that further to its’ new release dated May 24, 2017,  has signed an Option Agreement to acquire from two private vendors, a 100% interest in the Topley-Richfield gold/copper/silver/lead/zinc project (The Project) located in the Bulkley Valley, 100 km southeast of Smithers, B.C. The Topely-Richfield Project consists of seven of contiguous mineral claims covering an area of 2,313 hectares. The Project hosts a number of old mine workings, shafts, trenches and drilling and has a reported “historic” reserves of 170,000 tonnes grading 3.5 g/t gold and 161 g/t silver (Ref B.C. AR# 17374, Esso Minerals of Canada, April 1988).

The Bulkley Valley is a prolific mining district within the Skeena Arch. Past and present mining projects within 100 km. of the Project include the Bell, Granisle, Huckleberry, Endako, Dome and Equity Silver mines. The Project is road accessible via highways and a network of logging roads. Work programs can be carried out year round.

Bob Faris, President and CEO states, “We are pleased to announce the Topley Richfield Agreement represents the second mineral prospect agreement Shamrock has signed this year whereby the company has the right to acquire a 100% interest in the exploration project. The Topley Richfield project adds significantly to Shamrock’s growing asset base of quality polymetalic mineral properties. The company plans to continue to review and asses prospective projects for acquisition in order to add to our current portfolio.”   

Brett LaPeare, exploration consultant with 27 years of experience said “It is evident that the bulk of the TR property is underexplored and represents an excellent opportunity for precious and base metal discovery. From the mid 1970’s to 1987 all exploration work was focused on enlarging the known polymetallic mineralization at the old mine workings discovered in the late 1920’s. It wasn’t until 2006-2008 that an exploration program was designed to test a much larger area of the tenement block. The results from the soil geochemical surveys have revealed at least three moderate to well-developed anomalies (specifically Cu and Ag) over areas of 100’s of metres to over 1km in length. The largest soil anomaly is also coincident with a substantial magnetic low similar to, but much larger, the magnetic low associated with known mineralization. During the 2017 GIS review a number of plan maps were generated plotting soil geochemical results with magnetic and IP (chargeability/resistivity) contours. The plotted results clearly show three significant soil Cu and Ag anomalies completely separate from and at variable distances from the main showing area.”

Topley-Richfield Project Highlights:

  • Approx. 1,500 meter of underground workings on two levels
  • Over 360 meters of sloughed in trenching to investigate
  • Only 12% of the tenement has been explored
  • Over 8,000 meters of drilling to date
