The claims are located along a geological contact
trend previously explored in the 1890's when three short adits were dug out of the hillside.
The Lennie Property is strategically located northeast of the Red Lake Gold Mines complex along the same geological contact
that hosts the major gold mines in Red Lake.
The 20% Fe level is natural cut-off imposed by the geology as generally the limit of the resource wireframe coincides with the geological contact
of the BIF.
The northern and eastern parts of the property cover up to 4,000 metres of strike length of the regionally significant geological contact
between prospective volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Jurassic Salmon River Formation.
The sampling was performed on a peatland covering a presumed geological contact
between granite and paragneiss.
Preliminary modelling of the results of this work suggest that a shallow dipping zone of Yttrium enrichment occurs as a blanket immediately above the high grade Phosphate zone at the faulted geological contact
of the Inca Formation (top - Yttrium) and Beetle Creek Formation (bottom - Phosphate).
Agnico-Eagle now controls properties covering 12 miles on the geological contact
that hosts the Lapa Contact Zone.
The location of the key geological contact
between the sedimentary rocks and the monzonite porphyry changes strike from north-west-southeast strike adjacent to the main Buccaneer Porphyry zone to more north-south strike in the area of north-west extensions which is likely due to fault offsets.
The table summarizes the assay results which were categorized according to the nature of the geological contact
The recognition of the geological contact
between the intrusive rocks and the sedimentary rocks has important implications for regional prospecting.
The table summarises the assay results which were categorised according to the nature of the geological contact
It has a width of about 10 meters and is located stratigraphically along the same geological contact
as zone no.
