At Jackpine, preliminary due-diligence mapping by Solstice in 2020 identified a 1000m2 area of 100% quartz mineralization (open in all directions) within the Jackpine structure which points to robust fluid flow in an extensional setting. Preliminary sampling by the Sellers of Night Sky in 2021 had identified widespread sulphide mineralization associated with the Mercutio Lake structure which is also believed to trend onto our 100% claims at Jackpine. Recently reported sampling by Agnico Eagle in 2020 (MNDM assessment files) has documented gold along the very extensive NE-trending Melema Lake structure (Figure 1).
Lake sediment sampling by the OGS2 show that many known gold occurrences in the region are associated with elevated gold in lake sediments. Significantly, there are numerous unexplained gold anomalies, especially in the eastern area of the Solstice claim block (Figure 1). We suspect these may be associated with prominent NNE faults and thus they represent priority areas for follow-up.
Taken together, our view is that it is becoming increasingly clear that there are numerous, previously unrecognized structures, including many on our extensive land holdings which have received little or no exploration. These represent exciting exploration targets.
