Capsule Geology

The Rand occurrence is located 1 kilometre west of Lost Lake, approximately 3.3 kilometres south-southeast of the community of Gold Bridge.

The area is underlain by greenstones and coarse clastic rocks of the Upper Triassic Cadwallader Group. To the east these are in contact with serpentinite ultramafic rocks of the Permian Bralorne-East Liza Complex.

Locally, an east-trending shear zone hosts a 0.2 to 0.3 metre wide quartz-carbonate vein with pyrite and arsenopyrite mineralization.

In 1985, samples from a trench along the strike of the shear zone assayed approximately 3.1 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 17266). In 1987, diamond drilling yielded values up to 3.5 grams per tonne gold over 0.46 metre (drill hole 87-L-1; Assessment Report 17266).

The area has been explored in conjunction with the California (MINFILE 092JNE020) occurrence. In 1988 and 1989, Levon Resources completed programs of prospecting, soil sampling and eight diamond drill holes, totalling 825.8 metres, on the area as a part of the BRX property.
