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 (1,886 g/t AgEq). WAM's 2022 drilling season continually intersected more bonanza-grade mineralization at Waterpump Creek, expanding the mineralized strike from 50m to 400m long.
