Amex South - Destor

EMX’s Amex South/Destor Project is located 15 km north of La Sarre, Quebec. The land position is transected by the Chicobi-Nord Fault, which juxtaposes Archean metasediments against metavolcanics. The Archean host rock package is prospective for VMS and orogenic Au, whereas younger gabbroic and dioritic intrusions are prospective for Ni-Cu-PGE magmatic sulfide deposits.

The known mineral occurrences surrounding the land position indicate that multiple styles of mineralization occur locally, including disseminated to massive Zn-Pb and Cu-Ni sulfide. 

The Chicobi-Nord Fault provides a regional shear corridor that may have served as a fluid conduit for orogenic Au mineralization. Fold axes within mafic intrusions may have also concentrated fluids, making the fold hinges prospective target areas. Locations where the intrusions interacted with sulfide-rich metasedimentary country rocks are also targets for magmatic sulfide mineralization.

Silicification and carbonization are the most common alteration styles observed at the Project. Sulfide mineralization consists largely of pyrite, pyrrhotite, and sphalerite, with trace chalcopyrite. Mineralized zones can show brecciation, indicating possible upflow zones in addition to exhalative lenses.

EMX has not performed sufficient work to verify the drill data reported above, and these data cannot be verified as being compliant with NI43-101 standards. This data should not be relied upon until they can be confirmed. However, the mineralization as reported is considered reliable and relevant. True thickness of drill intercepts is unknown.
