Capsule Geology

The area is underlain by metavolcanics and metasediments of the Devonian to Mississippian Eagle Bay Formation. Rocks consist of chlorite-sericite schist derived from quartz-horn- blende-feldspar crystal lithic tuffs, agglomerates and porphyritic flows, with minor cherty quartzite, dark grey phyllite, and siltstone. The units trend east and dip 50 degrees north.

Drill holes intersected a 30 metre wide low-grade sulphide horizon associated with a well-foliated, pyritic tuff unit. The unit contains bleached, highly sericitized and silicified schist with pyrite, pyrrhotite and minor sphalerite and galena as fine disseminations and thin, discontinuous laminations. Barite beds also occur, containing disseminated mineralization. The mineralized horizon strikes east and dips 45 degrees north.

A 12 metre intersection in drill hole #2 assayed 0.06 per cent lead, 0.31 per cent zinc, 0.009 per cent copper and 0.65 grams per tonne silver, which contained a 1.22 metre intersection of 0.25 per cent lead, 1.47 per cent zinc, 0.01 per cent copper and 2.74 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 14206). Drill hole #1 intersected 2 metres of 1.6 per cent lead, 3.0 per cent zinc, 0.006 per cent copper, 1.54 grams per tonne silver and 8.1 per cent barite (Assessment Report 14206).
