2017 work performed by Reed Robinson and Merion are described below. The photos referenced are from the homepage tab “Images“ as sub-tab 2017 Activities”.
The Main Reed showing is the source of a 19.7 gm Au/tonne sample. This showing (photos 3 & 4) was hand stripped in 2017 and four bedrock samples (photo 5) and four grad samples (photos 6, 7 & 8) were collected and have been sent for assay.
Glacial Float Tracing
Various mineralized and altered boulders were identified within 200 meters of the south boundary of the Reed-Robinson Claims. The largest of these is a 5x3x2 meter rock that appears to be either float or a frost heave (photos 09, 10, 11 and 12). Numerous other mineralized, altered and veined boulders were identified and sampled (photos 13, 14, 15 & 16).
Hand stripping of the Merion claims identified a cluster of large altered and veined float along the south edge of the main Merion zone and approximately 150 meters north of the Reed-Robinson Claims. The largest float (photo 23) is resting directly on similar rock that may be either float or bedrock.
Main Merion Zone
The main Marion vein was stripped along a 14 meter strike length (photos 17, 18 19, 20 & 22). This vein is located in a strongly altered schistose and fuchsitic zone. The alteration zone appears to extend to the east and west. The large boulder photo 23 is at the south edge of this alteration zone. Present activities are directed to upgrading the rock exposures along this trend.
Mega porphyry boulder (photo 01) was discovered along the south boundary of the Reed-Robinson claims. It is unknown if this mega-porphyry is from a source within the property. Feldspar porphyry dikes are known in the claims south of the property.
Last year at Granada Mine south of Rouyn-Noranda Quebec the author discovered a new gold vein along the contact of a similar mega-porphyry (photo 02).
