The Powell-Clay property is located within the western Shebandowan greenstone belt of the Wawa sub-province. The subprovince extends for approximately 850 km from the Kapuskasing Structural Zone in northeastern Ontario to west-southwest in the Minnesota River Valley area (U.S.A.). The property is located along a 25 km long mineralized corridor that includes properties held by Xstrata/Rainy Mountain Resources and Moss Lake Gold Mines . The Wawa Subprovince is home to some of the largest shear- hosted lode gold deposits (e.g., Hemlo gold camp), volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits (e.g., former Geco and Winston Lake zinc mines), and mafic to ultarmafic intrusion-hosted Ni-Cu-PGM deposits (e.g., former Shebandowan mine) in Canada.
The Powell property consists of 12 claims (86 claim units) with an area of 14.66 km and is also located approximately 125 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario in the Shebandowan greenstone belt. The property has been surveyed with lines, geology, IP, magnetics and an airborne VTEM and magnetic survey. Limited diamond drilling has been done although trenching has been carried out over a wider area. Several significant gold showings have been located and a number of IP anomalies still require trenching or drilling.
The Clay property consists of 9 claims (112 claim units) with an area of 16.90 km and is located approximately 125 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario in the Shebandowan greenstone belt. The property is contiguous with the Powell claim group and covers the west and south extension of Powell. The property covers the west extension of the structure and stratigraphic of the Hamlin IOCG (iron-oxide-copper-gold) system. The magnetic anomaly associated with the copper bearing breccia extends west onto Clay and breccias have been mapped on the east boundary of Clay. A detailed mapping program followed by IP-mag traverses are planned to trace the IOCG system.
