Minerals

ASRC has land entitlements in northwest Alaska that have excellent potential to host world-class SedEx Zn-Pb-Ag sulfide deposits. The Red Dog Mine, the world's largest lead/zinc mine lies just outside ASRC lands in the western arctic. Despite proximity to Teck Cominco Limited's Red Dog Mine, the largest zinc mine in the world, the lands are virtually unexplored. ASRC seeks a mining company to explore, develop and mine deposits, which may be located on its lands.


Discovery

Eight favorable areas based on geological and geochemical merit have been recognized within the ASRC region in the western Arctic. All areas are underlain by black shale and chert of the Kuna Formation, host to all known massive sulfide deposits in the Red Dog vicinity. The geochemically anomalous zones exhibit high concentrations of Zn, Pb, Ag and pathfinder elements including Ba, Ag, As, Sb, Hg, Cd, Mn, V, Ni, P, and C. Several occurrences of disseminated sulfide mineralization have been discovered.


Extensive Gravel Deposits

ASRC holds title to extensive deposits of gravel, a key ingredient for oil field, pipeline, and industrial infrastructure development in Arctic Alaska. Areas of gravel holding are strategically located in the vicinity of villages, petroleum development, and high potential resource areas.
