The claims are comprised of felsic volcanics, iron formations, and mixed sediments intruded by granitic to dioritic intrusives. Rocks strike WNW-ESE and are sheared and near vertical dipping. A drill hole, C-1, hit 6g/t Au over 0.61m from 64.05 to 64.66m and 3.25m deeper 0.15m assayed 5.5g/t. There was no sampling between the 2 samples. Grades were found within veining and sulphide stringers in silicified volcanics. A hole drilled towards C-1 from 150m away, C-10, assayed 0.63g/t Au over 1.55m in a silicified iron formation from 71.60m to 73.15m. This was the only sample taken in a 12.6m “mineralized zone” iron formation with abundant sulphides.
Previous interpretations indicate veining and iron formations should come to surface. Iron formations are a common host for gold deposits and are identifiable through magnetometer surveys and Beepmats for near-surface showings. Sulphides found with the veining can be identified through EM surveys including VLF and for near-surface showings, Beepmats.
Due to the extensive overburden on the claims soil sampling is a primary step in identifying mineralization. Soil sampling can be particularly effective when soil anomalies are cross-referenced with geophysical anomalies.
The Galinee Gold Project is located in the Galinee district 16 kilometres south of the city of Mattagami in central Quebec, Canada. The project is comprised of 14 claims, covering an area of 892 hectares, and is located within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The property is accessible by highway 109 and thereafter through a network of all-season logging roads.
The Mattagami district is home to three active mines: The Douay Gold Mine, the Vezza Gold Mine and the Bracemac Zinc Mine.
