Ximen assembled a land position covering over 3,446 hectares surrounding and including the historic Amelia gold mine (see figure below). Historic production from the Cariboo-Amelia was 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc. The average recovered gold grade was 24.68 grams per tonne gold (from BC Minfile).
"Ximen Mining has had an excellent start this year, obtaining all the necessary permits for the execution of plans at the Kenville Gold mine. Additionally, progress on the drilling activities at the Amelia site is also going well. It is noteworthy that Kenville was one of the first gold mines to be put into production in southern BC, and Amelia was the first dividend-paying gold mine in the same region. Ximen Mining proudly owns both of these valuable assets in their entirety." - States Anderson, CEO

Under the Water Sustainability Act, in November of 2021 the Company applied for a short term water use permit to draw from various water sources in the area of its Amelia property for drilling. Local sources of water are fully recorded so additional sources were identified that require long distance pumping or trucking of water to drill sites. The Ministry of Forests granted the permit earlier this year. The permit will allow periodic extraction of water from five points of diversion, subject to conditions.

The Company is pleased to have this permit in place, which will allow it to proceed with plans for drilling at the Amelia property. Drilling is planed for this season.
