Properties

Wish Ore

The Wish Ore property is underlain by northeast trending meta sediments and meta volcanics of the Batchewana Greenstone Belt, with a major structure (Carp River Fault) running parallel to the trend.  Anomalous gold values occur associated with silicified zones over 6 kilometers along and adjacent to the Carp River structure, which is cut by northwest trending lineaments. The intersection of the main structure with the northwest trending lineaments creates an attractive exploration target. 

Several new shear zones were discovered on the property by prospector Mike Tremblay in 2013. The most promising of these was a new silicified zone in mafic volcanics south of the Carp River Fault from which grab samples assayed 1.2, 2.57, 8.8, 13.13, 13.73 and 25.57g/t gold. The shear zone is at least 30m wide, runs east-west and consists of silica, ankerite and sericite alteration. The best gold values were from a quartz-ankerite-pyrite +/- chalcopyrite vein that is at least 1m wide. Mineralization was also identified south of the fault zone associated with quartz-ankerite-pyrite stringers in a quartz feldspar porphyry assaying 1.53 g/t gold. 

In the spring of 2014 logging operations exposed several carbonatized shear zones west of Upper Tilley Lake.  Several anomalous samples were collected with a high value of 2.87g/t gold. The widest of these shears is over 30m wide and is exposed intermittently over 125m strike length.

Regarding his site visit Wayne Holmstead P.Geo said this about Trench A
{The prospector} said there was no sign of any past work on this showing that was exposed by the logging company and most of the recorded work was west of here around the Loydex trenches.  As well there are several parallel zones here that have not been cleaned off…very exciting.

Re Trench A West, Red lake expert Andreas Lichtblau MSc, P.Geo said:
“The Fe-carb alteration around the quartz veins is similar to what we have here in Red Lake. When the veins carry sulphides, especially arsenopyrite, then they’ll have gold. “

Phase 1 Work

Phase 1, completed in June, was designed to examine, manually strip and channel sample known gold showings on the property and was successful in identifying significant gold mineralization.

Values of 4.28 g/t gold over 3 meters including 9.05 g/t gold over 1.0 meter were identified from channel sampling on the New Zone.  Now, Phase 2 mechanical stripping has revealed that the initial sampling did not include the entire zone of mineralization and subsequent sampling, which has already been completed, may reveal a wider mineralized zone than first anticipated.  The Company awaits the assays. The gold mineralization was found to be associated with volcanic rocks with quartz veining and carbonate alteration.  Low concentrations of sulphides and chalcopyrite mineralization were also noted.

Phase 2 Work

Phase 2 work in progress includes:

  1. Mechanical stripping, washing and channel sampling of known gold showings on the property
  2. Prospecting to locate historical showings and undiscovered showings on the property
  3. Geophysical surveying ( IP, MAG and VLF-EM)  over known showings to define their extent and identify the geophysical signature of the showings.
  4. Mechanical stripping of the Loydex Zone (see Fig. 1) and the New Zone was done with a small backhoe and channel samples were subsequently taken.  The samples are beinjg submitted to the lab for analysis.  In addition, the other trenches done by Loydex in 1987 were located.

Loydex concluded that “two and possibly three zones of gold mineralization have been trenched” on the property.  “Wide zones of carbonate alteration are associated with some of the pits as well as wide sections of gold bearing quartz veins in association with blue quartz eyed volcanics make the area attractive for further work.”

Property prospecting has revealed large, angular, pyrrhotite and quartz mineralized boulders on a new logging road.  The boulders are associated with a major northeast-southwest trending linear feature on the property and a coincident resistivity low from an airborne survey done by Lacana in 1988.  Samples were collected and will be analyzed to determine if there are any metals of interest associated with the mineralized boulders.  This represents a new, previously unexplored target on the property and will be followed up during Phase 3 exploration planned for September.

Phase 3 Work

Phase 3 work planned to start in September will include additional mechanical stripping and channel sampling where warranted by the analytical results of Phase 2.  Additional showings found during Phase 2 work will be further prospected and sampled.

Company CEO Paul Sorbara says, “My recent trip to all three of our Ontario properties was very successful. I am very encouraged with what I have seen on our Wishore property. The excavator kept turning up good looking, mineralized outcrop. I anticipate the results of the geophysical surveys which are now in progress.  We got two for two with the IP anomalies on the Kwai and SLF properties in the Red Lake area and the MAG and VLF results from them are still in process. I believe those results will further enhance the drill targets.  Now we have three for three with the Wishore sampling and trenching and the geophysics isn’t even done yet.  Things are looking good.”
 

The independent consultant, R.S. Middleton B.Sc., M.Sc., P.Eng., retained by the Company has reviewed the data and has identified nine drill targets. Mr. Middleton states:

“The mineralization on this property and area is typically shear zones with quartz-ankerite alteration and low to moderate sulphide content and the resistivity readings are very important for tracing mineralization. Shear zones have been identified by the survey that are following known mineralization.”

Previous work by the Company on Wish Ore, conducted earlier this summer identified a new zone of mineralization with values of 4.28 g/t gold over 3 meters including 9.05 g/t gold over 1.0 meter obtained from channel samples cut on exposed outcrop August 22 GNG Press Release. Phase 2 mechanical stripping then revealed that the initial sampling did not include the entire zone of mineralization and subsequent sampling, which has already been completed, may reveal a wider mineralized zone than first anticipated.  The Company awaits the assays. The gold mineralization was found to be associated with volcanic rocks with quartz veining and carbonate alteration.  Low concentrations of sulphides and chalcopyrite mineralization were also noted.

Subsequent prospecting on the property has also revealed large, angular, pyrrhotite and quartz mineralized boulders on a new logging road.  The boulders are associated with a major northeast-southwest trending linear feature (Carp River Fault) on the property and a coincident resistivity low from an airborne survey done by Lacana in 1988.  Samples were collected and are being analyzed to determine if there are any metals of interest associated with the mineralized boulders.  This represents a new, previously unexplored target on the property and will be followed up during Phase 3 exploration planned for September.

In addition, the historical trenches by Loydex Resources Inc. were located by prospecting.  Historical gold values of up to 0.294 oz/ton (10.1 g/t) in grab samples have been reported here in quartz-carbonate, mineralized outcrops.  One of the areas reported by Loydex was recently mechanically stripped by the Company and 18.7 meters of channel sampling was done.  Analyses are pending.

Company CEO Paul Sorbara says, “We already have multiple drill targets on the Wish Ore property and there is still a lot of potential to be evaluated. One of the Induced Polarization targets covers an area with Iron Formation and needs to be prospected, sampled and possibly stripped in that area. The trend of the nearby Carp River Fault needs to be thoroughly examined.  Between the exciting results on our Kwai and SLF properties in the Red Lake area August 27 GNG Press Release and now Wish Ore near Sault Ste Marie, there will be a lot of drilling in our future.”
