Capsule Geology

Three small (less than 10 square metres) areas of sulphide mineralization were found on the DCE claims located at the western contact of the Late Triassic-Early Jurassic Iron Mask batholith with Upper Triassic Nicola Group volcanics. Showing A is at the faulted contact of Cherry Creek unit diorite and Pothook unit diorite, both of the Iron Mask batholith. Showing C, located about 650 metres west of showing A, is at the fault contact between Nicola Group andesitic volcanic rocks and Iron Mask Hybrid unit diorite. Showing B is about 1500 metres south of showing A, near the west shore of Jacko Lake. At the A and B showings the hostrocks are highly fractured and altered and contain less than 5 per cent pyrite with trace chalcopyrite associated with epidote and calcite in thin fracture fillings and veinlets. The B showing consists of an opencut about 3 metres deep and 3 metres wide on a 20 centimetre wide quartz-carbonate vein containing clots of pyrite and trace chalcopyrite.
