Geological Setting

Geological map
  • High-grade Ag plus Cu-Pb-Zn-Sb (± Au) mineralization found at Sail Pond unique for eastern Canada
  • Laurentian Margin – Humber Tectonostratigraphic Zone
  • Geology records a prolonged geological history as part of the Appalachian Orogenic cycle
  • Active to passive margin environments represented by Early Cambrian to Middle Ordovician rift-related siliciclastics to platformal carbonates
  • Parautochthonous and allochthonous displacement resulting in westward verging folds, NE orientated thrust faults, and shear zones
  • Dominantly carbonate-hosted Zn ± Pb, Ag occurrences in the region; e.g. Daniel’s Harbour – 7 Mt @ 7.8% Zn (mined between 1975-1990); minor Cu occurrences
  • Mineralization is stratabound; occurring in brittle deformed Lower to Mid-Ordovician dolostone; restricted to the western portion of the White Arm Window doubly plunging anticline; bounded and adjacent to major thrust/shear zones

  • High-grade Ag plus Cu-Pb-Zn-Sb (± Au) mineralization within four major zones along a 14 km trend; up to 200 m wide; remains open to the north, south, and at depth
  • Primary sulphide species include tetrahedrite, sphalerite, galena, and boulangerite; secondary (supergene) minerals include chalcocite, bornite, covellite, and malachite
  • Silica ± calcite ± sericite alteration
  • Mineralization is generally within, or spatially associated with quartz-carbonate veins, occurs as open-space infilling (clots), disseminations, vein-parallel massive bands or veinlets, and as solution breccia matrix replacement
  • Centimeter to meter-scale width quartz-carbonate veins form a conjugate set of steeply dipping veins that are oriented NE-SW, cross-cut by E-W veins; related to D2 (transtensional) and D4 (compressional) deformation events

Strong correlation of Cu, Pb, and Zn over a combined strike length of 12km tells a story of a large system

Heimdall Zone

Gravity Anomaly
1 km footprint and large zone of near surface mineralization
  • Over 7,500 meters of drilling has defined the Heimdall Zone
  • Heimdall footprint consists of a 400 m x 200 m by 150 m zone of mineralization
  • A new zone, Heimdall North was located 500 m to the north, resulting in one of the highest-grade intervals seen to date
  • The gap between the two zones remains open
Gravity Anomaly
Heimdall Geophysics – Orion Survey provides a clear targeting path to a larger body of sulphides beneath Heimdall mineralization
  • 4 new exploration targets discovered.
  • Favorable geology mapped to depth of 2 km.
  • Strong anomaly beneath newly discovered Heimdall North Zone and SP-22-064.
  • Surveyed 1.5 km of 14 km trend as a test before large-scale application.
  • Drilling underway.
