0x20 The B-14 Zone is found within a typical Archean volcanic assemblage, with gold hosted in pyritic quartz veining within a mylonitic unit.
We have observed new high-grade gold-bearing veins and mylonitic shear zones and although much work remains to be done to establish if these are potentially economic, our geologists are making rapid progress in mapping and trench sampling.
The provenance of sedimentary and volcanic clasts in the central part of the conglomeratic sequence is not clearly related to local basement sources, which are variably mylonitic metamorphic and plutonic rocks (Force and Barr 2006).
The calibre of grades returned in TGA089 may be an indication that the drilling may have encountered another high grade sub-body within the broader mylonitic mineralisation, similar to Terrace Creek.
The area is comprised of foliated granitoids, basement gneisses, mylonitic rocks, and high-grade metasediments (Godfrey, 1966), known as the Charles Lake granitoid belt.
The orientation ofthis pre-Carboniferous fault was inferred in part from the presence of mylonitic rocks in the Cape Porcupine Complex (White et al.
in mylonitic and listwaenite altered shear zones and in quartz
Limited and widely spaced previous drilling has confirmed that gold mineralization continues beneath the volcanics, where interpreted as a series of tabular horizons coincident with 'stacked', mylonitic breccias zones.
5 million) by indicating significant gold mineralization is hosted by sheared and mylonitic, predominantly fine-grained turbidites and manganiferous phyllites, with minor intercalated pebbly sandstones and pyroclastic rocks.
