Consulting Structural Geologist:

Robert H. Thivierge (P.Geo.) has 43 years of geological experience; 31 years of academic research, mineral

with an emphasis on structural controls for gold mineralization.

Lakehead University: Thin Sections:

Dr. Mary Louise Hill of Lakehead University prepared and examined nine thin sections, mainly rocks from the Discovery zone at Maun, and commented on a very preliminary basis. She is looking forward to a site visit to follow up on initial impressions.

“Your thin sections are…interesting and indicate a strong structural control on mineralization. In sample 8 from the Discovery trench, gold occurs in quartz fibre veins, the quartz fibres are curved and indicate rotation of the veins during non-coaxial strain (a shear zone). Some of the samples you call rhyolite are mostly generations of deformed quartz veins. The chlorite schists and what you call mafic fragments get their colour from chlorite and the fine grain size and are not actually mafic. Everything you sent me looks like deformed quartzofeldspathic (felsic/intermediate) plutonic rock and deformed quartz veins with varying amounts of metasomatism (alteration). So far, this looks like shear-zone-hosted orogenic gold to me.”
