KEY POINTS

Massive sulphide zone with a length of 180 m and with a vertical extentof 180 m located on a favorable horizon of 3 km in length (Figures 34 and 5). The best values measured along the core are the following:

  • Mc-09-01 : 11,1 % Zn, 1,23 % Cu, 66, 2 g/t Ag et 0,29 g/t Au / 0,4 m;
  • Mc-14-10 : 7,15 % Zn, 0,20 % Cu, 4,1 g/t Ag et 0,11 g/t Au / 0,4 m;
  • Mc-14-11 : 1,92 % Zn, 0,93 % Cu, 24,3 g/t Ag et 0,30 g/t Au / 0,5 m;
  • Mc-14-12: 11,73 % Zn, 0,21 % Cu, 44,2 g/t et 1,98 g/t Au / 0,6 m.

Massive sulphides are located in contact with two felsic lavas of tholeiitic composition altered to chlorite-sericite (Ishikawa alteration index > 80%).

Gold zones along the deformation corridor Destor-Porcupine observable in outcrop and drill core over a distance of 1.5 km (Figures 34 and 6).

  • The northern north dyke zone consists of albitized dykes located within a fuschite-chlorite-ankerite shist corridor . The best intersection was 0.34 g/t Au / 67.0 m including 6.50 g/t Au / 1.0 m.
  • The southern south dyke zone consists of felsic dykes hematized located within a fuschite-chlorite-ankerite shist corridor. The best intersection was 0.33 g/t Au / 29.0 m including 2.36 g/t Au 3 1.4 m.

The 3D OreVision geophysical survey data generated 2 new drill target areas. A program and budget for 2000 m has been developed to explore this potential.
