The Ouilette Lake project is underlain by the Sturgeon Lake greenstone belt. Active prospecting in the area between 1910 and 1925 resulted in several exploration pits exposing schistose diorite crosscut by quartz stringers carrying considerable pyrite and pyrrhotite as well as visible gold(1).
In the mid 80’s, Union Minière Explorations and Mining Corporation conducted an exploration program of 30 drillholes to explore a north trending belt of intermediate to felsic rocks(2,3). The drill program identified the Northeast Arm Creek (low level gold values(2)) and Moose Creek Zone cold occurrences (DDH B-16 with 13.8 g/t Au(3,4)). No further information was reported. The area is underexplored, and geological and geophysical survey work is likely to generate meaningful targets
EMX has not performed sufficient work to verify the published assay data reported above, and these data cannot be verified as being compliant with NI43-101 standards. These historically reported data should not be relied upon until they can be confirmed, but EMX believes this information is considered reliable and relevant. NOTE: True widths unknown.
