Regional Geology

publications.gov.sk.ca > Publications Centre > Energy and Resources

  • The Reindeer Zone in Saskatchewan is a collage of juvenile, arc-related crustal domains (Rottenstone, La Ronge, Flin Flon, Glennie Lake, Kisseynew and Hanson Lake Block) bounded by the Rae-Hearn and Archean Superior structural provinces
  • The McLennan Lake Tectonic Zone ("MLTZ") separates the lower metamorphic grade volcanic and intrusive rocks of the La Ronge Domain (a.k.a. Central Volcanic Belt) ("CVB") from amphibolite to granulite facies gneisses of the MacLean Lake Belt ("MLB") to the east

Property Geology

  • Metamorphic VMS mineralization
  • Mineralization tentatively correlated over 1,100 m strike northeast
  • Outcropping at surface, dipping on average 51 degrees northwest
  • Two mineralized horizons:
       Upper Mineralized Zone (UMZ)
              Strike and dip length of 1 km
       Lower Mineralized Zone (LMZ)
              Strike and dip length of 800 m

Work to Date

  • Mapping, geochemistry, geophysics, trenching
  • Drilling – 48,100 m (1957 - 2018)
  • 2017- 2018 drill results include:
    • 12.12% zinc and 0.97% copper over 11.40 m

  • Preliminary heavy liquid separation testing
  • 2019 Summer Work Program Completed

NI 43-101 Resource

  • Indicated – 2.1 million tonnes at 7.08% zinc, 0.69% copper, 0.49% lead, 39.60g/t silver or 9.98% zinc equivalent
  • Inferred – 7.6 million tonnes at 4.45% zinc, 0.57% copper, 0.19% lead, 18.40g/t silver or 6.29% zinc equivalent

Next Steps

  • Updated resource estimate and overall geological model will be used to assist in designing next steps for the exploration program on the Deposit’s advancement including additional follow-up drill programs

Corporate Presentation

Brabant-McKenzie Regional

Work to Date

  • 18 km strike of zinc/copper/silver VMS targets identified via drilling, prospecting, airborne and ground magnetic and EM geophysics
  • Six priority regional geophysics/mineralized targets defined:
    • Anomaly D new discovery proximal to the Deposit
    • Three ground VTEM and Mag coincident anomalies defined at south Brabant Lake
    • Two mineralized showing hosting VMS style mineralization
  • 1,643 ha of claims added to property package May/September 2018,  based on regional exploration results

Priority Targets

Anomaly D - New Discovery

  • 800 m by 800 m target - 1.5 km southwest of Brabant-McKenzie Deposit
  • Initial anomaly subtly identified via airborne HeliSAM geophysics
  • Ground EM and Mag program further defines the anomaly
  • Prospecting identified mineralized outcrops at approximate surface projection of EM plates
  • Drilling identifies sulphide mineralization in four drill holes
  • Further definition drilling planned

Main Lake Showing

View related news release

  • Identified and confirmed historic mineralization and geochemistry values
  • Selected rock grab sample values show assays of up to 11.65% zinc, 1.44% copper, 30.6 g/t silver
  • Grades are similar to those obtained at the Brabant-McKenzie deposit (the “Deposit”)
  • Ground EM and Mag survey currently planned

McIvor Channel Showing

View related news release

  • Located approximately 9 km south of the Brabant-McKenzie Deposit
  • Massive sulphide mineralization identified over 600 m strike length -  pyrrhotite with chalcopyrite
  • Mineralization dips northwest potentially under the McIvor Channel
  • Historic work included rock sampling returning a value of 0.25% copper in one trench; however no geophysics or follow up drilling was conducted to test this showing
  • 2018 program is first work on this showing  since 1968
  • 2018 sampling from returned anomalous values in copper
  • Extensive EM and Mag geophysical program planned this winter
  • Program focus will be to define the full dimensions of the showing and potential of adjacent mineralization.

Additional Regional Exploration

Further exploration programs planned to follow up, confirm and define additional regional geophysics conductors and mineralized showings
