EMX’s Sunday Fault North Project is located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec. The local stratigraphy consists largely of Archean metavolcanics with minor metavolcaniclastics and mafic intrusions. Two large felsic batholiths are nearby, serving as possible sources of heat and hydrothermal fluids. Wallbridge’s Martiniere Deposit (Detour-Fenelon Project) is 7 km to the east and is hosted in the same lithologies.
There has been extremely limited sampling and drilling over the Sunday Fault North land position. A total of three drillholes were drilled by Noranda in 1976 and geologists noted pyrite, pyrrhotite, and chalcopyrite mineralization in the drillcore. Silicification and carbonization are the dominant alteration styles. Fuchsite was noted as an accessory mineral. Historical rock samples were not assayed for gold and, to our knowledge, there have been no sediment sampling programs over the area. There are multiple deposit styles present locally (orogenic Au, VMS, Ni-Cu magmatic sulfide) indicating that the prospectivity of the Project should be re-evaluated.
Note: The nearby deposit provides geologic context for EMX’s Project, but this is not necessarily indicative that the Project hosts similar tonnages or grades of mineralization.
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.
