Capsule Geology

The area of the Pine showing is underlain by the Lower, Middle and Upper Triassic Sulphur Mountain Formation consisting of calcareous mudstone or siltstone. The sequence, where exposed, has a strike averaging 125 degrees with a dip averaging 35 degrees west. The rocks are gently folded and have a shallow northward plunge.

Sampling has defined a vanadium-bearing zone with a length of 200 metres and an estimated true width of 100 metres. Several assayed samples range in value from 0.219 to 0.470 per cent vanadium (Assessment Report 20372). Reports indicate that it is not visually possible to separate unmineralized rock from mineralized.
