Ximen Mining Corp







Ximen Mining  is positioning itself to be British Columbia’s next significant gold producer through exploration and acquisitions.


 Ximen Mining Corp. owns 100% interest in three of its precious metal projects located in southern BC.  Ximen`s Gold projects are the Kenville Gold Mine, the Amelia Gold Mine and the Brett Epithermal Gold Project. Ximen also owns the Treasure Mountain Silver Project adjacent to the past producing Huldra Silver Mine.


Currently, the Treasure Mountain Silver Project is under option agreement. The option partner is making annual staged cash and stocks payments as well as funding the development of the project.


The company’s flagship project, the Kenville Gold mine near Nelson, British Columbia, is production ready. Ximen owns the surface and underground rights, buildings and equipment as well as a permit for the construction of an underground decline.

Ximen is a publicly listed trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol XIM, in the USA under the symbol XXMMF, and in Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin Stock Exchanges in Germany under the symbol 1XMA and WKN with the number as A2JBKL.





Kenville Gold Mine


In 2019, Ximen acquired the former producing Kenville gold mine along with all existing permits, infrastructure and equipment. The Company then initiated permitting to develop a new 1200 metre decline and do underground drilling. Once this work gets underway, the Company will move toward extracting a bulk sample for offsite processing. To date, surface buildings and roads were rehabilitated, the portal site for the decline was stripped, a transformer for hydro power supply was installed, and a new mine compressor was purchased. Water and waste rock quality surveys were completed, showing that the mine drainage water is high quality and the waste rock is non acid generating. The Company intends to be extracting a bulk sample this year and then be in a position to move toward continuous production. Historically, the Kenville mine produced 65,381 ounces of gold from 158,842 tonnes processed.




Brett Epithermal Gold Project


The Brett Epithermal Gold Project is Ximen’s primary precious metals project. Since 2013, Ximen has owned and controlled 100% of this 20,025 ha. epithermal gold district, which is situated in southern British Columbia near the city of Vernon.



The Brett property has a history of surface exploration drilling, geophysical and geochemical surveys, as well as approximately 240 meters of underground drifting and raising, and a 291 tonne bulk sample processed at the Trail smelter for a recovered grade of 27.7 grams per tonne. Bonanza high-grade and bulk low-grade types of epithermal-style gold mineralization have been identified on surface and in previous drill holes. In 2019 Ximen initiated a permit to extend the underground workings and do diamond drilling to further define the main zone and explore parallel zones. This program is expected to be started this year.,80,330,0,1121.1330!1.2031!500.0000,99.1408,266.5785!2113.0958,99.1408,2176.5319!0.0000,1.0000,0.0000!368.0506,247.0000,82.4346



Amelia Gold Mine


In 2019, Ximen assembled a land position covering 1718 hectares surrounding and including the historic Amelia gold mine (see figure below). Historic production from the Cariboo-Amelia was 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc. The average recovered gold grade was 24.68 grams per tonne gold (from BC Minfile).

For 2020, Ximen is planning geochemical and geophysical surveys followed by diamond drilling. The goal is to locate extensions and parallel veins. Permitting will commence imminently.
