The Texas Creek property is a 2650-hectare claim block comprised of 326 claims (see Figure 1). The property is located 19 kilometers northwest of Hyder, 6 kilometers south of the past-producing Granduc Copper Mine, 10 kilometers southwest of the past-producing Scottie copper mine, and 9 kilometers west of the past-producing Premier Gold Mine. Blackwolf Copper and Gold acquired 100% interest in this property through physical staking in May and June of 2021

The property contains multiple known mineral occurrences, including historic prospects and small-scale past-producing gold and silver mines. These prospects are hosted within the Lower Jurassic Hazelton Group stratigraphic horizon that plays host to the majority of large high-grade gold and silver deposits in the Golden Triangle.
Blackwolf Copper and Gold’s current dataset is sourced from prospect evaluation and sampling completed by United States Federal Government geologists in the 1990’s.
- Regionally prospective geologic setting: Lower Jurassic Hazelton Group and Early Jurassic Texas Creek Suite rocks
- 24 historic prospects with no modern-day exploration since the 1990's, almost none since the 1930's and 40's.
- Significant glacial recession, abundant new unexplored outcrop exposure.
- Abundant previously unmapped prospective polyphase satellite intrusive bodies of the Texas Creek intrusive suite.
- Solo: 2021 grab samples up to 7,910 g/t Ag and 10.0 g/t Au from a zone of structurally-controlled quartz veining and alteration over 535m of strike length. The target shares strong similarities to Pretium Gold's Brucejack gold mine located approximately 4 kilometers to the north.
- Doghole: 2021 grab samples up to 11.3 g/t Au and 530 g/t Ag from polyphase shear-hosted, polymetallic sulfide veins adjacent to the Texas Creek Granodiorite.
