Capsule Geology

The Junkers occurrence is located 5 kilometres east of Junkers Creek, southeast of Chuckachida Lake and 15 kilometres north of Toodoggone Lake, about 239 kilometres north-northwest of the community of Germansen Landing.

The showing area is underlain by Lower to Middle Jurassic marine sedimentary and volcanic rock of the Hazelton Group.

In 2004, Stealth Minerals Limited collected 19 rock samples and 13 silt samples for geochemical analysis. Only three of the rock samples were not float and these were labelled as subcrop. PIMA spectroscopy analysis was done on 16 rock samples to determine alteration. A sample of pyritic quartz vein subcrop yielded 0.1 per cent copper and 1.08 grams per tonne gold (sample 151405, Assessment Report 27637).

A dacitic subcrop sample containing thin quartz stringers with pyrite yielded 0.2 per cent lead and 8.64 grams per tonne silver (sample 151401, Assessment Report 27637). This sample was located about 500 metres east of sample 151405. Several other float samples taken by Stealth on the Junkers property in 2004 assayed between 1 and 4.1 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 27637).

No other work was done on the Junkers property prior to 2004. One 1995 Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS) silt sample taken from a north-draining stream, central to the claims, yielded 175 parts per billion gold.
