Of all the geophysics, it suggests the amount of sulphide we've intersected so far does not explain the magnitude of the gravity anomaly," Novak says.
As a result of this process sulphur will be reduced to sulphide which, depending on the pH of wastewater, can occur in three different forms (Fig.
The massive sulphide zones are hosted at the contact between mafic pillow lavas and massive basalt, and have been classified as volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits.
metallurgical testwork including bench scale flotation batch tests and locked cycle tests on the sulphide and supergene portions of the deposit;
The additional geophysical coverage is required to further define base metal massive sulphide targets.
The continued discovery of alteration, mineralization and favourable geology, indicative of the footwall area to a massive sulphide deposit unrelated to the Louvicourt mine and within an environment that would support the potential for a deep base metal massive sulphide deposit, is very encouraging.
The marked base-metal increase towards the stronger part of the anomaly is very promising for this zone, pointing to the possibility of an economic massive sulphide mineralization.
In the three drillholes (NO-05-01, -02 and -06) that reached the depths of target IP anomalies, the amount of disseminated sulphide mineralization is very weak, and may or may not account for the anomalies.
The drill program continued to confirm extensive broad areas of sulphide mineralization with polymetallic (Au, Cu, Zn & Ag) values in a major volcanogenic massive sulphide-epithermal environment.
The first three anomalies are situated in the northwestern part of the property and are regionally-developed parallel sulphide zones that can be traced for a distance of over 8 km.
