Geology

The project searches for gold, however Pt and Pd are historically found in the country rocks including the Otto Stock to the south of the property (Pt & Pd identified by MNDM field mapping).

The property is located in a differentiated mafic intrusive consisting of a rock suite that ranges from anothositic gabbro to granophyre. The more felsic members have a strong pervasive chlorite/calcite alteration with relict, glassy quartz grains. The pervasive chlorite/calcite alteration is overprinted by Fe-carbonate/sericite alteration,  associated with the complex structural overprint of the Larder Lake Deformation Zone. The Larder Lake - Cadillac Deformation Zones hosts the gold deposits of Kirkland Lake, Larder Lake, Cadillac, Milartic and Val d’Or gold camps.   

The deformation zone includes strong 080-090o controlling faults located within 50 meters of the base line, three Riedel cross structures oriented at approximately 135o (marked by strong Fe-carbonate alteration), and quartz and quartz-Fe-carbonate veins (080-090o) that appear to occur in the country rock proximal to the fault structures. Other structural trends are inferred as shown on the maps.
