Examples

  • Previous Geo-Chemical data had shown the area systems, quartz vein stockworks and breccias bearing gold, silver, argentite and pyrite with trace amounts of galena as well as chalcopytrite, sphalerite and sulphosalt minerals.

  • This drilling has outlined a relatively narrow, high-grade zone of mineralization consisting of sulphosalt, wire-silver and locally native silver-bearing veins and vein stockworks containing variable galena and sphalerite content, and that appears continuous from the historical Lucky Queen mine workings.
