The Indata property (copper-gold) consists of 16 claims totaling 3,189 hectares (7,880 acres) is located approximately 120 kilometres northwest of the community of Fort St. James, British Columbia and 230 kilometres northwest of the City of Prince George. It is situated in and adjacent to the Pinchi Fault Zone with the northern boundary being approximately 7 kilometres south of the southernmost boundary of the Stardust Project and 10 kilometres south of the Central Zone of the Kwanika Deposit (NorthWest Copper Corp). Terrain is flat to hilly with elevations varying from 940 metres (3,100 feet) to 1,290 metres (4,200 feet) entirely within a coniferous forest. The Indata property was inaccessible until 1996 when Eastfield constructed an 18 kilometre road to it. By 2018 loggers had upgraded this road and were conducting clear-cut logging operations in the southern regions of the property where logging operations can occur year round.
Originally staked by Imperial Metals Corporation in 1983 Indata was subsequently sold to Eastfield who has explored it since 1987. Two styles of mineralization exist at Indata including lode gold related to splay structures in the Pinchi Fault Zone where results have included drill intercepts of 47.26 g/t gold over 4.0 metres and porphyry copper mineralization where results have included drill intercepts of 0.20% copper over 148 metres and trench results of 0.36% copper over 75 metres. A 1 km long coincident IP chargeability and coincident copper in soil anomaly remains untested. In 1989 a separate area of high grade copper and copper-gold mineralization was identified in the northeastern sector of the property with only minimal follow-up. Here, a cluster of select grab samples returned a number of high grade results from an open-ended area of approximately 250 m in a north-south orientation (east-west width unknown). Grades can exceed 3.0% copper and 0.50 g/t gold.
Recent success at the Stardust Project by NorthWest Copper, including hole 421 with an intercept of 5.0% copper equivalent over 100 metres suggests that undrilled geophysical anomalies (IP Chargeability) occurring in comparable Paleozoic carbonate rocks on the Indata property have significant potential to host similar mineralization.
To earn the 60% interest Alpha Copper is required to complete $2,000,000 in exploration, pay $250,000 in cash and $150,000 in cash/share equivalents over a 5 year term. A minimum $75,000 program is required in the first year.
