Five Metals.
One District.

Our Project, People, & Passion 

Western Alaska Minerals is focused on advancing its 100% owned "Illinois Creek Mining District" (>73,000 acres) which contains targets originally discovered by Anaconda Minerals in the 1980s and was consolidated by the WAM management team over the past 10 years. The portfolio of five, high-grade, evolving mineral projects contain: gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc including a silver-rich Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD) and a NI 43-101 oxide gold resource at the Illinois Creek deposit.

Our board, management, and technical teams have track records exploring and progressing Tier 1 assets in Alaska including Donlin Creek, Greens Creek, and Bornite.

The company’s first-pass drill program at the Waterpump Creek (“WPC”) CRD target in 2021 intersected 9.1m (true thickness) @ 526 g/t Ag, 22.5% Zn & 14.4% Pb. WAM's 2022 drilling season continually intersected more bonanza-grade mineralization at Waterpump Creek. The mineralized strike length in this area of the CRD system now measures 495m.

Photos: Drill hole WPC21-09 cut 10.5m (9.1m TT) of 522 g/t Ag, 22.5% Zn and 14.4% Pb of massive sphalerite and argentiferous galena. This exceptional high-grade interval has focused WAM's exploration targeting on the overall CRD potential on the property.

  • Phase 2 drilling at Last Hurrah target (Waterpump Creek CRD extension)
  • Initial resource estimate at Waterpump Creek CRD (Q4 2023-Q1 2024)
  • Continue unlocking district-scale opportunities: Drill targeting for 2024 will leverage 2023 exploration drilling with state-of-the-art 3D geophysics
  • Continued de-risking studies: metallurgy, 28-mile all-weather road access on state land
