Golden Cariboo Resources (TSXV: GCC) has received a gift of sorts from Osisko Development, whom it was recently discovered previously conducted airborne mag and EM surveys over the the Quesnelle Gold Quartz Mine property.
The geophysical surveys were conducted during the 2016 – 2017 field season, without Golden Cariboo previously being aware of the work conducted. The survey covered over 1,000 hectares of the property, and was discovered via publicly available data published by Osisko.
Correlations are said to have been made with that data and limited surface mapping and trenching results conducted by Golden Cariboo. After the data was reviewed by Geotronics Consulting, who previously conducted an IP survey on the Quesnelle property, it is said that there is a strong northwest trend in the anomalies across the property, which agrees with known geology that has faulting and lithological contacts that trend to the northwest.
The Main Zone and Halo Zone are said to occur within a strong northwesterly-trending magnetic high, while the North Hixon Zone is found on the northeastern edge of the same magnetic high, which is 1.8 kilometres long. Given that gold has been identified within altered greenstone which is not normally expected to be magnetic, it could indicate basaltic volcanic rocks or ultramafic rocks potentially occur at depth.
A conductor also occurs across the property in the same northwesterly direction to the west of known mineralization.
“The Company’s evaluation of Osisko’s data appears to support their staking program which almost entirely encircles Golden Cariboo’s Quesnelle Gold Quartz Mine Property. The Company is currently drilling at the Property and is extremely encouraged with initial findings, in part utilizing knowledge gained from Osisko’s geophysical data along with its own internal exploration efforts,” commented director Andrew Rees.
Current exploration efforts will include additional re-interpretation of the existing airborne geophysical data, which will be incorporated with surface mapping and geochemistry results.
