emplacement of sulphides
along fractures and zones of hydrothermal breccias.
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
metallurgical testwork including bench scale flotation batch tests and locked cycle tests on the sulphide
and supergene portions of the deposit;
Hole FW-06-04 intersected several sulphide
rich zones including 0.
The additional geophysical coverage is required to further define base metal massive sulphide
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
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
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.
