Capsule Geology

The Lucky Ranger (North Ridge) occurrence is located on a north-south trending ridge separating Steep and Girl creeks, approximately 2.9 kilometres southeast of Carpenter Lake.

The area is underlain by Mississippian to Jurassic Bridge River Complex (Group) siliceous cherty sediments, argillites, limestones and volcanics. This package is intruded by granodiorite plugs of the Cretaceous to Tertiary Bendor pluton and also contains masses of serpentinite. Porphyritic dykes, probably Tertiary, also cut these rocks.

Locally, quartz-carbonate-mariposite altered ultramafics host gold values. In 1984, a rock chip sample assayed 1.41 grams per tonne gold over 2.0 metres (Assessment Report 14225). In 1985, trench sampling yielded values up to 0.96 gram per tonne gold over 6.69 metres from trench TR3 (Assessment Report 14518).

In 1975, a program of rock sampling, trenching and a ground magnetometer survey were completed on the area as the Bee claims. In 1981, a program of airborne geophysical surveys was completed on the area. In 1983 and 1984, Newmont completed programs of rock, silt and soil sampling and geological mapping on the area as the Lucky Ranger claim. During 1985 through 1992, Levon Resources completed programs of trenching, rock and soil sampling and airborne geophysical surveys on the area.
