The Brucejack intermediate-sulfidation epithermal Au-Ag deposit, located 65 km north of Stewart, BC, forms part of a well-mineralized, structurally controlled, north-south gossanous trend associated with Early Jurassic intrusions straddling the Late Triassic-Early Jurassic Stuhini-Hazelton Group unconformity in the Sulphurets mineral district. Mining of the deposit commenced in mid-2017 after a long history of exploration dating back to the 1880s. Mineralization is hosted in deformed Lower Jurassic island-arc volcanic rocks of the Hazelton Group exposed on the eastern limb of the Cretaceous McTagg anticlinorium. High-grade Au-Ag mineralization was formed from ~184 to 183 Ma in association with a telescoped, multipulsed magmatic-hydrothermal system beneath an active local volcanic center. Precious metal mineralization occurs as coarse aggregates of electrum and silver sulfosalts in steeply dipping, E- to SE-trending quartz-carbonate vein stockwork zones cutting low-grade intrusion-related phyllic alteration. Epithermal vein development is interpreted to have occurred during the waning stages of Early Jurassic sinistral transpression in a compressive arc environment, followed by a limited Cretaceous deformation overprint.
