“The mineralized horizon is a quartz-rich gneiss that contains hornblende-feldspar-biotite, and locally chlorite and tourmaline crystals. Minerals present include trace to 15% pyrite, trace to 20% pyrrhotite, up to 10% graphite, trace to 12% chalcopyrite, trace to 10% sphalerite, trace galena and associated gold mineralization.  The mineralized zone is described as bounded by graphitic gneiss. The showing consists of a silicified horizon within a northeast-trending shear zone. Mineralization has been traced over a strike length of 2400 ft (731.5 m) within this silicified shear zone.
Structurally, the showing area occupies the core of the Schotts Lake anticline. The host rocks have a northeast strike and dip 20°to 30°SE. Lineations indicate a plunge of 21° to 40°NE. The region has undergone at least four phases of folding. The second generation of folding produced shearing along first generation fold limbs.
Past exploration on the Property, primarily conducted in the mid 1980’s, did not have the benefit of the regional scale mapping and recently released Sask. Government compilation by K. Ashton & R. Maxeiner. Significant advancements have also been made in airborne geophysical surveys and in understanding the ore controls of gold mineralization in Saskatchewan.”

Gold deposits in the Flin Flon Domain are typically related to Volcanogenic deposits emplaced at the time of eruption of the host rocks, or as Orogenic style deposits emplaced at a later date, when the rock were subjected to greenschist (or higher) levels of regional metamorphism.
