Location:

Project Description

Main objectives:

To remap the main portion of the Munro Lake greenstone belt, evaluate geochemical anomalies from Operation Superior and lake sediment surveys, and reports of disseminated W-mineralization at Reekie Lake for Au potential similar to Yamana Gold’s Monument Bay project.

Methodology:

The project will entail 1:20 000 scale mapping of the belt between Munro, and Conlin and Reekie lakes. Mapping will be conducted along shoreline by boat as well as inland traverses. Rock samples will be collected for assay, and lithogeochemical and isotopic analyses. Additional work could focus on reports of disseminated W-mineralization on Reekie Lake and its potential similarity to Au-W mineralization at Monument Bay, as well as investigating a possible structure that lies 2 km north of Reekie Lake marked by deposits of polymictic conglomerate.

 

Benefits:

Remapping of this area, last mapped in 1972, and investigating anomalies and mineral showings will provide new geoscientific information to the exploration industry, Bunibonibee (Oxford House) Cree Nation and God’s Lake First Nation.

 

Plans for fiscal year 2017-2018:

  • One week of reconnaissance work in the Reekie Lake area, sampling of units, and investigating report of W-mineralization

 

Completed outputs:

2015-2016
