Manson Creek Resources Ltd. is a mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of early stage gold projects across Canada. The Company is led by a technical team of two professional geologists with extensive project generation and exploration experience throughout Canada and around the world.
While North America, and specifically British Colombia has long been an important supplier of Nephrite Jade to the Asian markets, it has done so on the basis of deposits mostly discovered previous to the 1980ís. There has been very little new exploration done using modern day techniques for this particular commodity, and with a dramatic increase in both the demand and the value of Jade over the last 10 years, we see an excellent opportunity to redeploy Mansonís technical team in this underdeveloped space.
Mr. JP Jutras, P.Geol and President of the Company recently reported: ďAfter returning from competing as an award winning Jade and Gemstone carver in one of Chinaís largest competitions (Zi Gang Bei International Competition), and subsequently travelling extensively in China to visit large Jade carving centers and evaluating the Jade space, it was clear that there was a tremendous opportunity for an exploration Company with the proper skill set to make significant headway in this space.
While Jade deposits do generally occur within geological terranes that are also typically prospective for such other commodities as gold, copper and nickel, our focus going forward will remain on identifying prospective geological environments where an early stage package of properties can be acquired and rapidly evaluated at surface for the potential of further developing ultimately marketable Jade resources.
