Known Mineralization and Potential
The Doigt Property represents the least explored of the Properties comprising Balmoral’s Detour Trend Project. Prior to Balmoral’s involvement there were no known drill holes on the Doigt Property. In 2013 Balmoral completed two holes to test to separate I.P. and one EM target on the Property (see NR13—-). Both holes encountered anomalous mineralization discussed below.
Hole DOT-13-01 intersected a biotite-rich shear structure which returned a zone of weakly anomalous gold mineralization (0.27 g/t gold over 2.74 metres). Gold mineralization is hosted in several narrow, highly deformed quartz stringers within the broader shear structure. The gold mineralized shear appears to correlate well with a prominent topographic low in the area tested. Hole DT-13-02 intersected a similar, but narrower shear structure which returned 0.81 g/t gold over 0.47 metres. While neither of these occurrences warrant additional consideration at this time they do indicate the presence of structurally controlled gold mineralization on the Property. No other gold occurrences are currently known on the Property.
Base Metal Mineralization
The only base metal mineralization observed to date on the Doigt Property is from a 0.38 metre wide semi-massive sulphide vein which returned 1.01% Zn and 0.70% copper. The setting does not appear to be conducive to the formation of nickel-copp-PGE mineralization but there may be some VMS potential in areas of the Property which remain untested.
