Capsule Geology

The Two Bob showing is located approximately 700 metres northeast of the former Wayside mine (092JNE030), on the north-westerly shores of Carpenter Lake. The occurrence is underlain by shales of the Upper Triassic Hurley Formation (Cadwallader Group) which have been intruded by a northerly trending, quartz-feldspar porphyry dyke, up to 5 or 6 metres wide.

Mineralization occurs within and peripheral to the dyke margins, which have been sheared, silicified and carbonatized. Silica occurs as pods and lenses, locally cementing brecciated fragments of the carbonatized dyke. Pyrite, arsenopyrite and mariposite are present locally; mariposite can form a significant percentage of the rock. Diamond-drilling in 1987 intersected up to 2.61 grams gold per tonne over 0.68 metre (Assessment Report 17091).

The property is held by International Wayside Gold Mines Ltd.
