Wish Ore

The Wish Ore property is underlain by northeast trending meta sediments and meta volcanics of the Batchewana Greenstone Belt, with a major structure (Carp River Fault) running parallel to the trend.  Anomalous gold values occur associated with silicified zones over 6 kilometers along and adjacent to the Carp River structure, which is cut by northwest trending lineaments. The intersection of the main structure with the northwest trending lineaments creates an attractive exploration target. 

Several new shear zones were discovered on the property by prospector Mike Tremblay in 2013. The most promising of these was a new silicified zone in mafic volcanics south of the Carp River Fault from which grab samples assayed 1.2, 2.57, 8.8, 13.13, 13.73 and 25.57g/t gold. The shear zone is at least 30m wide, runs east-west and consists of silica, ankerite and sericite alteration. The best gold values were from a quartz-ankerite-pyrite +/- chalcopyrite vein that is at least 1m wide. Mineralization was also identified south of the fault zone associated with quartz-ankerite-pyrite stringers in a quartz feldspar porphyry assaying 1.53 g/t gold. 

In the spring of 2014 logging operations exposed several carbonatized shear zones west of Upper Tilley Lake.  Several anomalous samples were collected with a high value of 2.87g/t gold. The widest of these shears is over 30m wide and is exposed intermittently over 125m strike length.

Regarding his site visit Wayne Holmstead P.Geo said this about Trench A
{The prospector} said there was no sign of any past work on this showing that was exposed by the logging company and most of the recorded work was west of here around the Loydex trenches.  As well there are several parallel zones here that have not been cleaned off…very exciting.

Re Trench A West, Red lake expert Andreas Lichtblau MSc, P.Geo said:
“The Fe-carb alteration around the quartz veins is similar to what we have here in Red Lake. When the veins carry sulphides, especially arsenopyrite, then they’ll have gold. “
