The Black Dog Property (the “Property”) is located 150 km east of James Bay, Quebec, and 4 km south of the Opinaca hydroelectric reservoir on the Eastmain River. The Property comprises 19 adjacent mineral claims, covering 1,003 hectares and occurs within the ancient (Archean) Eastmain greenstone belt, between the Le Caron granitic batholith to the north, and the regionally large Mistumis batholith to the south.
As reported in the Quebec government’s mineral occurrence database (MERN), the property hosts the Black Dog gold showing, where four drill holes from the 1980s and 1990s intersected significant gold mineralization. The gold is hosted in a sulphide-chert iron formation horizon, as described on MERN and by Lavoie (2014) and older assessment reports. The best Black Dog gold intersections (Table 1) reportedly occur within sulphide +/- chert bearing iron formation that is both magnetic and conductive. According to reports filed with the Quebec government, the gold-bearing iron formation tested by the drill holes in Table 1 appears to extend more than 600 m on strike.
