The Corner Pocket copper-zinc-silver massive sulfide project spans 6,400 hectares and is located 25 km northwest of Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Corner Pocket is contiguous to the west, east and south of the York Harbour Metals Inc.’s massive sulfide project.
The contiguous York Harbour project of York Harbour Metals Inc. (formerly Phoenix Gold Resources Corp.) hosts significant semi-massive to massive volcanogenic massive sulfide mineralization including the past producing York Harbour mine. Historic mining and current and historic drilling have identified lenses from 1 to 26 metres wide over 600 metres of strike length. York Harbour has identified additional copper-zinc mineralization in the western and southern portions of the property that has yet to be explored.2

Silver Sands cautions investors mineralization on the York Harbour property is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on the Corner Pocket property.
The exploration success of Phoenix Gold / York Harbour Metals at York Harbour has brought considerable focus to western Newfoundland. While the Corner Pocket property has seen very limited historical exploration, there have been undocumented reports of significant gossans on this ground the Company plans to aggressively follow up. York Harbour’s reports of copper mineralization in the western and southern portions of their claim block strongly suggests possible extensions onto the Corner Pocket property and further enhance the potential of the propertyKeith Anderson, CEO & President
The Corner Pocket property covers a NNE/SSW trending synclinal fold within the Blow Me Down Massif which is comprised of the Humber Arm Allochthon/ Bay of Islands Ophiolite suite. The property hosts the upper and middle stratigraphy of the upper Cambrian to lower Ordovician Bay of Islands Ophiolite: a mafic sheeted dyke complex and massive gabbro. The Claim also contains a deeper serpentinized harzburgite and red arkosic sandstone, conglomerate, volcanic pillows and breccias of the Lower Cambrian Blow Me Down Brook Formation.
The targets are Cypress style volcanogenic massive sulfides within the Blow Me Down Massif within an ophiolite sheeted dyke complex. The lower Cambrian Blow Me Down Brook Formation also has potential to host volcanogenic massive sulfides.
