- Visible gold bearing quartz veins at surface, with historic grabs of up to 61.26 g/t Au
- 2021 drilling intercepted 8.69 g/t Au over 0.45 m
- Possible mineralized trend remains open and untested to the north
The Quinlan Veins showing is located approximately 2.5 km southwest from the community of Port Albert, adjacent to Highway 335.
The property is underlain by Early to Late Silurian siliciclastic sediments and felsic-volcanics. The Quinlan Veins showing consists of a discontinuous visible gold bearing quartz vein system.
The Quinlan Veins target was covered by Exploits’ 2021 extensive VTEM survey.
A diamond drilling program was also completed in 2021. This program included 13 drill holes designed to intersect the surficial showing of the Quinlan Veins at depth and investigate the continuity of mineralization and anomalous gold observed in the outcropping quartz veins at surface that produced up to 61.26 g/t Au from grab samples. One significant intercept of 8.69 g/t Au over 0.45 m was identified in drill hole QV-21-009 and the possible mineralized trend remains open and untested to the north.
- Exploits assays received to date include up to 1.94 g/t Au from grab samples
- Historic sampling yielded up to 3.6 g/t Au in grab samples, and up to 3.6 g/t Au over 1.1 m from channel sampling (Cornerstone Resources Inc. – 2003 – 2004)
The Gina showing is situated on the Port Albert Peninsula and is located 500 m west from the community of Stoneville.
The showing consists of a series of five porphyritic felsic dykes hosted in Paleozoic siliciclastic sediments. The system is moderately silicified and contains spotty sericite alteration with arsenopyrite and pyrite mineralization.
Structurally, the property lies between the interpreted Dog Bay Line and Reach Fault.
The Gina showing was covered by Exploits’ 2021 extensive VTEM survey.
2022 exploration activities include prospecting, mapping, and chip sampling programs over the Gina main showing, as well as prospecting of the area around the showing.
