- Name of Project - Ribago Project (75% Interest) acquired as part of an underlying agreement with Central Asia Goldfields.
- Project Type - Exploration
- Location -Beauchastel and Rouyn townships
- Target Minerals - Zinc-Copper-Silver-Gold
- Discovered in the 1980's by Noranda.
- Located along the Central Camp's Main Exhalite horizon host to the Millenback, Amulet, and Old Waite VMS deposits.
- The historic resource at Ribago is 480 kt @ 7.97% Zinc, 1.9 g/t Gold and 23.3 g/t Silver, 0.4% Copper1. No assessment of the potential for profitable extraction of the above tonnage and grade has been made. Future programs under consideration will focus on validating the tonnage and grade identified.
- Old Waite mine that produced 1.1 Mt @ 4.6% Copper, 1.1 g/t Gold, 22 g/t Silver, and 3% Zinc and the Amulet A produced 4.7 Mt @ 5.41% Copper, 5.30% Zinc, 4.4 g/t Au and 44.2 g/t Silver.
- Geological Summary
- The stratigraphy on the Ribago property is well known, consisting of the Amulet Rhyolite and the Amulet Andesite overlying the synvolcanic Flavrian Complex. The Ribago VMS lens is located along the Main Exhalite (rhyolite-andesite contact), at a vertical depth between 1 000 and 1 200 m.
- Historic Drilling - 93 holes totaling 53 000 m of historic drilling was completed prior to 1990 with the majority of holes were done to a maximum depth of 900 m.
- Next Steps -compile and analyse the historic data leading to an initial drill program to test the depth and strike extent of the mineralization.
