Capsule Geology

The Jag 5 (No.6) occurrence is located east of Fiddler Creek, approximately 600 metres southeast of its junction with Meachen Creek.

The area is underlain by quartzite and siltstone of the mid-Proterozoic (middle) Aldridge Formation (Purcell Supergroup), intruded by meta-gabbro or meta-diorite of the Proterozoic Moyie Intrusions. Three or more of these sills, from 60 to 180 metres thick, strike in a northwest direction through the area for an aggregate length of 3.5 kilometres.

Locally, a diorite hosts a 1.8-metre wide shear zone with thin calcite veining. Mineralization consists of disseminated pyrite and minor chalcopyrite.

In 1972, a 0.6 to 1.5-metre wide channel sample (CH1943) assayed 0.30 per cent copper, 0.10 per cent lead and 4.8 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 4235).

The JAG 1-58 claims were staked in March 1972 by A. Hopkins, of Toronto. Mount Evans Copper Corp. Inc., incorporated in Ontario in May 1972, acquired 18 of the Jag claims. During this time a program of rock and soil sampling, geological mapping and trenching was completed on the claims. The following year, a program of rock, silt and soil sampling and a 0.2 line-kilometre induced polarization survey were completed. In 1984 and 1985, Grom Resources completed programs of geochemical sampling, geological mapping and a 9.5 line-kilometre ground electromagnetic survey on the area as the Goodhope and Whitefish claim groups. In 1989, Yellow Band Resources completed a program of geological mapping and a 6.0 line-kilometre induced polarization survey on the area as the Evans 1 and Terra 3 claims.
