The SLF property is underlain by metasediments (gneisses) of the English River subprovince that are cut by the Sydney Lake fault. Work to date has outlined anomalous gold features on the property, primarily through MMI soil geochemistry and lake sediment geochemistry in Pakwash Lake. These anomalies in an underexplored area are the first steps in looking for Eleonore-type mineralization near the subprovince boundary.
The local geology fits the model for the style of mineralization found at the Eleonore deposit of Goldcorp in northern Quebec (total reserves and resources of 35,220,000 tonnes at 6.3 g/T Au), where mineralization occurs in polydeformed sedimentary rocks near a subprovince boundary and near a quartz diorite stock. The authors have been unable to verify this information, and the information is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization that is the subject of the technical report.
Ground geophysics consisting of IP and or VLF-EM should also be conducted over the claims to help define sulphide mineralization associated with the Sydney Lake Fault and related splays along the length of the Property. The grid lines should be run north-south in order to survey across the strike of the fault.
Research should also be done into the local glaciation history to determine what direction the glacial cover in the area came from in order to determine the location of the bedrock source for gold anomalies in the area. The authors assume that this type of work has already been done for the general Red Lake area, given its significance, and the information should be readily available.
