Commences Extensive Exploration Program Across Multiple Highly Prospective Targets At The Buck Project, Central Bc
Sun Summit Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: SMN; OTCQB: SMREF) is pleased to announce the commencement of a property-wide exploration program over several highly prospective target areas within its 100% optioned, 33,000 hectare Buck Project, central British Columbia.
“We are very excited to start the next phase of exploration at our Buck Project”, stated Sharyn Alexander, Sun Summit’s President. “The results of our high-resolution VTEM geophysical survey, as well as the assessment and reinterpretation of existing geological, geophysical, and geochemical data, have provided new insight into the unique potential in this region. In addition to expanding our Buck Main discovery, our large property has the potential to host additional Buck-style prospects and other deposit types. Our technical team has selected several high-priority areas for follow-up geochemical sampling and geological mapping which will improve our understanding of the Project’s district-scale prospectivity and could lead to additional discoveries.
“This property-wide exploration program at the Buck Project is expected to continue over the coming months as we advance toward a follow-up drill program at Buck Main. Any drill worthy targets delineated during the current program should augment and potentially expand future drilling programs to include testing of multiple targets.”
The exploration program will include geological mapping and geochemical sampling across key targets identified through a rigorous assessment of recently acquired high-resolution VTEM geophysical data (see news release dated July 14, 2022) together with existing geological, geochemical, and geophysical data (e.g., IP and magnetics) compiled by Sun Summit’s technical team.

Two high-priority areas with significant multi-km2 footprints were first selected for systematic follow-up surveys based on their potential to host Buck-style epithermal-related mineralization or porphyry-related copper mineralization.

Sun Summit is engaging with First Nations on whose territory the Buck Project is located and is discussing their interests and identifying contract and work opportunities, as well as opportunities to support community initiatives. The Company looks forward to continuing to work with local and regional First Nations as the project continues.
