The Bleka project has outcropping gold mineralization in an underexplored greenstone belt 120 km southwest of Oslo. The Bleka Vein was discovered in 1990 and was mined from 1880-1916 and 1936-1940. Identified targets remain untested and include the Blengsdalen Vein, Bleka Mine, and the Espelid Vein-Swarm.
The Blengsdalen Vein is a unique vein swarm that outcrops lower in elevation. At the Bleka Mine, only 200m of the 3000m outcropping vein swarm has been explored. Additional targets remain along strike and down dip from existing workings and quartz-veins have not been systematically sampled or drill tested. The Espelid Vein-Swarm has 10 veins with thicknesses between 0.5 – 2m with an observed bismuth alteration halo on the surface.
In August 2020 EMX amendment its option agreement with Sienna Resources Inc. (TSX Venture: SIE), for the Slättberg nickel-copper-cobalt-PGE project in southern Sweden by adding EMX’s Bleka and Vekselmyr projects in southern Norway to the Option Agreement.
