Capsule Geology

The area west of Mackenzie Cove is underlain by Upper Triassic Karmutsen basalts, metabasalts and minor limestone, which are intruded by diorite possibly related to the Jurassic San Christoval Plutonic Suite.

This showing consists of a shear hosted quartz-pyrite- sphalerite-galena-chalcopyrite vein, 30 to 40 centimetres thick. The vein parallels the foliation of the enclosing metabasalts. A sample of the vein assayed 4.4 per cent zinc, 1.6 per cent copper, 1.5 per cent lead and 78 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 22952, Figure 3).

This showing was sampled by Doromin Resources Ltd. in the early 1990s. Inco Exploration and Technical Services Inc. flew airborn electromagnetic and magnetometer surveys over the showing in 1992.
