Obonga Project Geology
Wishbone VMS Project
Located in the Western portion of the Obonga Greenstone Belt.
Highly magnetic anomaly that could represent magnetite in a high-grade core similar to Winston Lake, McFaulds and other VMS deposits.
Similar geologic environment to the nearby Mattabi VMS camp which produced 13.5 Mt of ore with an average grade 7.5% Zn, 0.88% Cu, 0.77% Pb and 3.10 oz/t Ag in the period 1970-1983.
Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag-Au VMS target
Drilling by Dome in the 1970’s intersected massive stringer and disseminated sulfide 800 m north of anomaly
Drilling by BHP in the 1990’s intersected massive stringer and disseminated sulfide 600m south of anomaly
Strong coincident MAG-EM anomalies identified from government and historic surveysAnomaly ranked high priority for follow up in 1992 however no further work was completed.
Awkward Palladium-platinum-Copper-nickel Conduit project
Pd-Pt-Ni-Cu Magmatic Sulphide target
Target is interpreted as a feeder conduit to the Awkward Lake zoned mafic intrusive body
Very strong remnant magnetic anomaly coincident with EM conductive anomaly
Remnant mag feature has similarity to Thunder Bay North deposit and Escape Lake deposit (Clean Air Metals) and Eagle (Lundin)
Historic Drilling (Jorex 1971) on edge of anomaly intersected massive sulphide and disseminated sulphide including chalcopyrite hosted in gabbro however they did not report any assays
Anomalous Pd + Pt found in surface samples
