Capsule Geology

The Nome 4 occurrence is located between Pooley and Huntergroup creeks, approximately 85 kilometres north of the community of Dease Lake.

Regionally, the area is underlain by limestone, slate, siltstone and argillite of the Upper Triassic Slide Mountain Complex and Pennsylvanian to Permian basaltic volcanic rocks.

Locally, a 1-metre-wide, northwest-trending quartz-limonite gouge zone within argillite hosts trace chalcopyrite with malachite staining. The strike length of the zone is not known but appears limited.

A grab sample (NER-13) collected from the gouge zone assayed 0.46 gram per tonne gold and 11 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 16186).

Work History

In 1983, the Nome claims were staked and have had limited geological mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling done since. In 1984, the surrounding area was prospected and sampled as the Plata 1-4 claims. In 1987, Evergrow Resources Ltd. conducted geological mapping, hand trenching (four trenches), and collected 410 soil and 60 rock samples on the Nome claims. In 1988, a further program of soil and rock sampling was completed.

In 1996, Cartaway Resources Corp. completed a 3678.0 line-kilometre airborne magnetic survey on the area as the Hot Tip property. In 1997, Tako Resources Ltd. completed ground VLF-EM and magnetic surveys over two grids within the Nome claims totalling 9.4 kilometres.

During 2008 through 2010, Hawthorne Gold Corp., later China Minerals Mining Corp., completed regional programs of geological mapping, geochemical (rock and soil) sampling and 11,657 line-kilometres of airborne magnetic, radiometric and electromagnetic surveys on the area as the Cassiar Gold property.

In 2013, China Minerals Mining Corp. completed a program of rock, silt and soil sampling on the area.

In 2019, Margaux Resources completed a program of prospecting, geological mapping and rock sampling on the area as the Cassiar Gold property. In 2020, Cassiar Gold Corp. completed a program of regional photogeological interpretation, prospecting and rock sampling on the Cassiar Gold property.
