Vancouver, June 19, 2020 – Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX.v: XIM) (FRA: 1XMA) (OTCQB: XXMMF) (the company or Ximen) is pleased to announce that there are 7 additional claims near its Kenville gold mine property in Nelson, southern British Columbia, has acquired. Seven claims spanning approximately 693 hectares were acquired this week at the Nelson Mining Camp. A block of 2 claims surrounds the company’s historic Queen Victoria mine, located approximately 3 miles northwest of the Kenville mine. A second block of 5 claims is adjacent to the eastern border of the company’s Kenville gold mine property.
The Queen Victoria copper-gold-silver skarn deposit was mined between 1907 and 1956 and produced 1.48 million pounds of copper (673 tons), 30,544 ounces of silver and 246 ounces of gold. The new claims also include three Crown Granted claims that have reverted to the crown.The eastern block of claims includes five fallen crown grants and the Mor 1 mineral deposit. In addition, the Oro Fino deposit lies on the border between the newly acquired claims and Ximen’s existing property. At Oro Fino, the known mineralization is similar to that of the Kenville mine: quartz veins with pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite and free gold, so it looks like the Kenville vein system will continue in this area. The Mor 1 deposit is 1 km southeast of the Kenville mine. The mineralization known there consists of isolated pyrite with little chalcopyrite in diorite and pyrite and chalcopyrite in narrow quartz veins with a width of up to 30 centimeters, which indicates the potential for large-scale mining of vein gold deposits.
