Capsule Geology

The Hazelton View area is unerlain by hornfelsic greywackes and siltstones of the Middle Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous Bowser Lake Group which are intruded by the Rocher Deboule porphyritic granodiorite stock of the Late Cretaceous Bulkley Plutonic Suite. The stock is cut by vein/dike systems which follow east trending fractures.

American Manganese states in Assessment Report 33297 that "old reports speak of the Hazelton View and the Victoria as being the same occurrence, however while prospecting the area (in 2011) a set of railroad tracks protruding from a collapsed tunnel was found." Presumably American Manganese is implying that this is possibly the Hazelton View occurrence, which appears to be on strike to the west of the northern Rocher Deboule veins and south of the Victoria area.

The showing accessed by the tunnel is covered but the mineralization is reflected in local debris. Sample 11 DE 814, is a high-grade sample, collected near the mouth of the tunnel. It is the most significant indication of mineralization in the Hazelton View area and was found to contain 6 grams per tonne gold, 65 grams per tonne silver, 10.14 per cent copper, 0.27 per cent cobalt and 1.0 per cent arsenic (Assessment Report 33297). Elsewhere in the Hazelton View area, there is a 1 metre wide shear zone that contains frothy quartz, and there are several areas of rock stained by malachite. Sample DE 820 consists of hornfelsed sediment that contains disseminations of chalcopyrite and assays 9 grams per tonne silver and 0.27 per cent copper. Sample KM 747 is a biotite, magnetite and chalcopyrite rich rock that contains 2.3 per cent copper and 17 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 33297).

Work History

See Victoria (093M 072) and Rocher Deboule (093M 071) for details of related work done.

In 2011, American Manganese held the Rocher Deboule property which covered three small, past-producing mines and five significant prospects including: Highland Boy (093M 070), Rocher Deboule (093M 071), Victoria (093M 072), Great Ohio (093M069), Cap (093M073), Golden Wonder (093M074), Three Hills (093M075) and Daley West (093M053). American Manganese Inc. carried out a program that entailed 22 kilometres of ground magnetometer survey, 841 soil samples, 455 rock samples and 68 silt samples. The most significant soil sample returned 8650 parts per billion gold, 72.4 parts per million silver, 0.58 per cent copper, 1.31 per cent arsenic and 20.09 per cent iron (Stockwatch, November 20, 2012; Assessment Report 33297).

In 2012, American Manganese Inc. completed a minor program of rock and soil sampling on the area.

During 2016 through 2019, American Manganese Inc. completed further programs of geochemical (rock and soil) sampling and 10.2 line-kilometres of ground magnetic surveys on the area as the Rocher Deboule property.
