Location

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

Property

The project contains 1 488 claims covering about 683 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 :
    • Didgeridoo Zone: Outcropping shear zone with fault-filling quartz veins, 5 to 10 meters large, at least 100 meters long, open north and south:

      • 1.67 g/t Au / 8.8 m (DJ-01 channel) ;
      • 1.45 g/t Au / 6.7 m (DJ-04 channel) ;
      • 1.3 g/t Au / 2.7 m (DJ-07 channel).
    • Ants Zone: Outcropping zone of disseminated pyrrhotite with minor quartz veins in quartz diorite, 5 to 25 meters large, at least 70 meters long, open to the east:
      • 1.78 g/t Au / 23.3 m, including 3.19 g/t Au over 10.0 m (channel ANTS-18-03);
