Davis Township, East Wahnapitae, Ontario
The Copper shaft Occurrence was found based on a location from the abandoned mines database. It consists of two shafts, one vertical and one inclined about 40m apart from one another. The geology consists of a quartz vein located within the Nipissing Diabase, close to the northern contact with the Gowganda Formation. The quartz vein contains localized chalcopyrite mineralization with associated malachite and azurite.
In late fall of 2010 the area was stripped, mapped and channel sampled to assess the surficial extent of the copper mineralization and to document the orientation of the vein, as seen in the trench map below.
Notable assays from the channel samples are as follows:
Following the trenching and mapping, a grid was designed to cover the extent of the area where quartz veins were observed. A ground IP survey was run over the property and anomalous targets were drilled in Late November. All IP targets were Nipissing Diabase containing disseminated pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite.
