Located ~2 km due west of the Scottie Gold Mine, the Domino Zone exhibits similar mineralization style, grade, and orientation to the past-producing mine. Glacial retreat has only recently exposed this area, leading to the 2019 discovery of multiple large (10+ m long) massive sulphide lenses. During the 2019 program, first pass surficial sampling returned 9 samples over 5 g/t gold, including a 5.3 m long chip sample averaging 10.5 g/t gold, with the highest-grade grab sample grading 536 g/t gold and 129 g/t silver.
- Initial drilling program on Domino produced numerous high-grade intervals, including:
- 12.4 g/t gold and 8.7 g/t silver over 2.69 metres
- 19.9 g/t gold and 71.6 g/t silver over 0.94 metres
- 13.4 g/t gold and 8.11 g/t silver over 1.07 metres
- Three new high-grade showings were discovered proximal to the Domino Zone
- Each zone marked by a grab sample with > 50 g/t gold
- Surficial sampling results and geophysics indicate that the mineralizing system present at Domino is at least 900 metres x 450 metres
- New induced polarization (IP) grid defines prospective drill targets coincident with new high-grade grab sampling
- A ~634 line-km AirTEM Electromagnetic (EM) survey was flown over the entire Scottie Gold Mine Project, including the Domino Zone
The 2020 field season marked the first ever drill program at the Domino Zone with a total of 18 holes. Preliminary mapping and sampling of the Domino Zone indicate that mineralization is linked to two intersecting sets of discreet shear structures. Drilling was done with an oriented core setup in order to provide maximum value from the data collected. The information garnered from the 2020 drill program will be combined with newly acquired geophysics and detailed structural mapping to drill target structurally controlled high-grade ore shoots in this mineralized corridor during 2021.
