Scottie Gold Mine is a past producing mine that operated from 1981 to 1985, and produced 95,426 oz gold at an average grade of 16.2 g/t. The 319 ha property consists of 14 Crown granted claims contiguous with 2 modified grid system claims. Rotation Minerals has 100% interest in the Scottie Gold Mine subject to a 3% NSR.
The deposit consists of a number of east-west to northwest trending, steeply dipping, shear veins, that are comprised of pyrrhotite > pyrite ± quartz ± calcite. The veins are hosted in a package of andesitic volcanics from the Unuk Rover Formation that are situated adjacent to the contact with the Summit Lake stock, part of the early Jurassic aged Texas Creek Plutonic Suite.
