Location

  • The Willbob project is located in the Labrador Trough, about 65 kilometers west of the town of Kuujjuaq, Quebec.

Property

The project contains 1,042 claims covering about 475 square kilometers.

Highlights

  • Project with high gold potential, covering more than 60 km of favorable stratigraphy and containing many gold showings (new and historical).
  • Very favorable setting for orogenic Au deposits:
    • Greenschist-facies rocks;
    • Favorable iron-rich lithologies to precipitate gold – abundant iron-rich gabbros, diorites, iron formations, black shales;
    • Polyphase deformation, abundant thrusting and folding;
    • Major first-order crustal-scale structure separating older, lower grade VSED metamorphic rocks, from younger, high grade (amphibolite) metaseds rocks – Similar setting as the prolific Cadillac-Larder Lake fault in the Abitibi belt;
    • Major second-order gold-bearing fault zones within the Labrador Trough;
    • Syn-orogenic, polymictic conglomerates newly recognized – possibly marking major reactivated normal faults within the orogeny (similar to Timiskaming-type conglos in the Abitibi belt).
  • Little previous exploration for gold – Lots of old exploration for base metals, gold was seldom analyzed – Many/most Au showings were found by Midland last 4 years – No IP geophysics ever done.
  • At least five types of gold mineralization identified on the project:
    • Shear zones with fault-filling quartz veins, pyrrhotite-pyrite, in diorites-gabbros (Didgeridoo);
    • Shear zones with fault-filling quartz veins and associated flat tension veins, with arsenopyrite, in diorite-gabbros (Golden Tooth, Lafrance, Polar Bear);
    • Quartz-pyrite±chalcopyrite±sphalerite±galena veins in gabbros (Alias, SP, Kavi) ;
    • Networks of flat, quartz-pyrite-pyrrhotite veins, in iron formations or tonalites (Dessureault, Lafrance East);
    • Gold-bearing volcanogenic massive sulfides (Stars).
  • New 2017-2018 gold zones :
    • Ants Zone: Outcropping zone of disseminated pyrrhotite with minor quartz veins in quartz diorite. The gold zone has been defined as 100 meters long of drilling, between 6 to 12 meters thick and is open to the west and at depth:
