Mineralization at Cecil R is similar to the Briggs mine and is thought to be related to the detachment fault that hosts it. Gold mineralization is hosted primarily within a zone of west dipping weathered saprolite gneiss and secondarily as weak stockworks of quartz-dolomite-pyrite veinlets near high angle faults within the gneiss and within an amphibolite underlying the gneiss.
A historic operator calculated a resource of 125,825 oz Au at a grade of 0.171 g/t in 2010 based upon 94 reverse circulation exploration drillholes totaling approximately 96,000 feet. The Company’s claim package covers some of this historic resource, but it is not clear exactly what portion is covered by the Company’s claims. Exploration plans for the property involve investigating the possibility of validating the historic resource with current drilling and approaching the operator of the Briggs Mine to determine the possibility of processing the ore utilizing their facilities.
The Company maintains 12 unpatented mining claims for the Cecil R Project, designated the Zev’s Gold claims.
