VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 18, 2023 / Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX.v:XIM)(FRA:1XMA)(OTCQB:XXMMF) (the "Company" or "Ximen") announces that it has conducted an interpretation of the results from a LiDAR survey completed over a portion of its Nelson Property holdings in southern B.C., which surround the company's flagship, the Kenville Gold Mine.

Ximen is exploring am extensive land package of 21,497 hectares in the Nelson area that surrounds its Kenville Gold Mine project. A helicopter-borne LiDAR survey covering 36.1 square kilometers was completed over the Kenville and surrounding area (Figure 1 above).
At Kenville, underground development was recently permitted to access new veins discovered by surface drilling. Over its 64-year history of production, the Kenville mine produced 65,381 ounces of gold and 27,685 ounces of silver from 181,375 tonnes mined (BC Minfile). The Kenville deposit occurs within area of gold-quartz vein swarms measuring 8 by 3 kilometers that includes the Eureka, Venus and California historic mines (Figure 2). Total production from Eureka, Venus and California mines was 5,945 ounces gold and 43,547 ounces silver as well as significant copper, lead and zinc (BC Minfile).
The LiDAR survey resulted in two products: a digital elevation model (DEM) and orthophoto mosaic. The DEM was used to identify lineaments related to geological and geomorphological features. Lineaments were interpreted as faults, bedding traces and landscape-scale glacial grooves. Features reflecting infrastructure such as logging roads and previous exploration workings were also identified, using a combination of the DEM (Figure 3) and the orthomosaic (Figure 4).

Figure 4. Image of the orthomosaic from the LiDAR survey showing lineaments identified.
The lineaments fall into two statistical groups as shown by the Rose diagrams in Figure 4. The length-weighted Rose diagram (a) shows a dominant north-northwest trend, representing the major valleys in the area including Eagle and 49er Creek. These valleys are related to major faults including the Mt. Verde Fault and the Silver King Shear Zone, which is associated with gold mineralization in the area. There are also numerous parallel lineaments in this group, some of which appear to be large-scale ridge-groove features in the bedrock interpreted as glacial in origin. The non-length weighted Rose diagram shows a dominant east-northeast trend. This group may represent cross-faults or quartz veins. Lineaments that parallel the known vein swarms are high priority and warrant follow-up exploration.
