Exploits Subzone

What Makes the Exploits Subzone a Prime Target For Gold Discovery?

Exploits Discovery Corp has developed an area play map, highlighting all the major players and current staked claims in the Exploits Subzone. Click here to download the Exploits Subzone Map.

The Exploits Subzone is a prime environment for true discovery in one of the last easily accessible gold exploration districts in the world. The prominent regional thrust faulting shows evidence of long tectonic history and fluid migration. 

Trans-compressional strike-slip movement in the regional siliciclastic units underlain by mixed mafic volcanics of the Gander River Ultramafic Belt (GRUB) creates a highly prospective gold environment, exemplified by the Bendigo gold deposit in Victoria (Australia), and Meguma gold deposits (Nova Scotia) displaying similar structural and geological controls.

Abundant reactivation features such as sericite seams, iron-rich carbonate hydrothermal alteration and quartz-carbonate veinlets (historically structurally hosted gold was not adequately tested in the area).

431.25 km²

Structurally hosted gold targets around the NW-SE trending Mt. Peyton Linear

24.50 km²

The Gazeebow Property consists of 98 mineral claims encompassing a land area of 24.5 km2

121.25 km²

Located within the Exploits Subzone in prospective siliciclastic sediments and along the northern extent of the Dog Bay Line and Appleton Linear Fault zones, which are associated with gold mineralization in the area

31.75 km²

Historical trenching done by local prospectors revealed visible gold in quartz veins but was never assayed (Keats, 2004)
