STURGEON LAKE VMS PROPERTY
The Sturgeon Lake VMS camp is host to five past producing zinc-copper-lead-silver-gold base metal mines, having a total combined production of 19.8Mt @ 8.50% Zn, 1.06% Cu, 0.91% Pb and 119.7g/t Ag. The camp is located within the prolific Sturgeon Lake greenstone belt in the Wabioon sub-province of Ontario’s Superior province and is considered highly prospective for additional VMS deposits.
The Sturgeon Lake VMS property lies immediately north (<500m), and adjacent to past-producing mines, and is host to the highly prospective and underexplored continuation of the past VMS-producing volcanic stratigraphy. The property is also host to several historical, and coincident magnetic-EM anomalies, which are interpreted to be significantly underexplored.
The project is located in the Six Mile Lake, Bell Lake and Quest Lake township areas of the Patricia mining division of Northwestern Ontario and comprises 456 unpatented mining claims having a combined area of approximately 9,500 hectares and is located approximately 80km northeast of Ignace, Ontario.
