Capsule Geology

The Gold (Janet) showing is located approximately midway between Sawmill and Lisbon creeks, approximately 1 kilometre north of Perry Creek.

Regionally, the area is underlain by mid-Proterozoic rocks of the Aldridge, Creston and Kitchener formations (Purcell Supergroup). These are intruded by mid-Proterozoic diorite and gabbro sills and dikes of the Moyie Intrusions. Cretaceous quartz monzonite and granodiorite stocks occur just off the property to both the east and the west.

Locally, quartz veins occur in argillaceous quartzites and altered quartz phyllite of the mid-Proterozoic Creston Formation (Purcell Supergroup). Mineralization includes hematite and pyrite with gold, silver and lead values.

In 1980, a chip sample (4012) from a trench on the Gold claim yielded 0.2 gram per tonne gold over 3.5 metres (Assessment Report 8598).

In 1987, a rock sample (OB-2) taken from quartz veins on the north side of Perry Creek, approximately 1.4 kilometres to the east, yielded 0.43 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 18790).

The area has been historically explored in conjunction with the nearby Anderson (MINFILE 082FNE056) occurrence. In 1974, the area immediately east was prospected and mapped as the King claim. In 1983, the area immediately east was rock sampled and trenched as the Dammit and King claims. In 1978, Meridian Resources completed a program of geochemical sampling and geological mapping on the area. During 1979 through 1985, Gallant Gold Mines completed programs of rock, soil and silt sampling, trenching, geological mapping and ground electromagnetic and magnetic surveying on the area as the Perry Creek property. In 1987, Chapleau Resources completed a program of soil, silt and rock sampling, trenching and geological mapping on the area as the Racki claims, Morgan property. In 1989, the area immediately east was prospected and sampled as the Lynx claims. In 1991, a program of rock and soil sampling was completed. Also, in 1991, a 2.8 line-kilometre ground electromagnetic survey was completed on the area as the Mill claims.
