Rogerson Structural Gold Corridor Newfoundland
The Company has assembled a group of structurally controlled gold property targets in Newfoundland. These types of gold mineralization represent the most economically significant for gold found in Canada.
Newfoundland’s Rogerson Structural Corridor gold district occurs within a northeast-trending structural corridor defined by crustal-scale faults extending forms southwestern to north-central Newfoundland. The Rogerson Lake Conglomerate characterizes the structural corridor. The presence of conglomerate reflects preservation of syn-orogenic upper crustal clastic sequences commonly associated with orogenic gold vein systems. The largest known gold resource along this corridor occurs on Marathon Gold Corporation’s Valentine Lake property. Marathon Gold Corporation’s April 15, 2021 NI43-101 Feasibility Study, Valentine Lake project has estimated Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves of 2.10 Moz (Proven 29.7 Mt at 1.46 g/t Au Probable 17.4.7 Mt at 1.17 g/t Au) and Total Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources (inclusive of the Mineral Reserves) of 3.13 Moz (Measured 32.0 Mt at 1.79 g/t Au and Indicated 23.4 Mt at 1.52 g/t Au ). Additional Inferred Mineral Resources are 1.64 Moz (26.5 Mt at 1.52 g/t Au) *. Recent exploration by Antler Gold Inc. on previously unexplored property in the Wilding Lake area, adjacent to the northeast corner of the Valentine Lake property, exposed a system of gold-bearing quartz veins hosted by syn-orogenic sedimentary rocks, felsic volcanic rocks and volcaniclastic rocks.
The Company is in the process of developing a structural model for its 2021 exploration program on the Density, Mass, and Eclipse Properties.
