Early Stage Gold/Base Metal Prospect
Detour Trend Project, Quebec
- The Harri Property covers a 20 kilometre long stretch of volcanic and sedimentary stratigraphy located immediately north of and along the Detour/Sunday Lake deformation zone; located between the Company’s Martiniere and Fenelon Properties.
- Along with the Company’s Grasset Property to the east the Harri Property represents some of the least explored ground within the Project area.
- Balmoral holds a 100%, royalty free interest in the entirety of the Harri Property
- The eastern portion of the Harri Property, east of the Harricana River, can be accessed year round via existing bush roads and historic logging trails which branch off from the Samson River road. The western portion of the property can be accessed via winter road or via helicopter year round.
Mesothermal Gold Mineralization
The Harri Property traces the northern margin of the Sunday Lake deformation zone for approximately 20 kilometres in an east-west direction across the Property. The Sunday Lake deformation zone is host to what, at design capacity, would be Canada’s largest gold mine – the Detour Gold Mine located 50 kilometres to the east in the province of Ontario. The property also covers the eastward extension of the structural/stratigraphic sequence which hosts the Company’s Martiniere gold system on the adjacent property to the west. Across the Harri Property the Sunday Lake and its related structures are sparsely tested and have not been well understood historically due to the heavy overburden cover.
Base Metal Potential
Volcanogenic Cu-Zn-Ag-Au Massive Sulphide Mineralization
The southern portion of the Harri Property hosts a highly unusual, dome-shaped inlier of sedimentary stratigraphy across approximately 10 kilometres. This highly unusual formation is ringed by an extensive series of electromagnetic (EM) conductors. Historic drilling in this area has been directed mainly at VMS (Zn-Cu) targets with limited success. The stratigraphy in this area is poorly understood and is a focus for future exploration on the property. The world-class Selbaie Cu-Zn-Ag-Au VMS deposit is located less than 12 km to the south.
