Since discovery in 2012, our Maisie Zone gold zone has delivered results that continue to exceed expectations. The discovery boulders grade up to 118 g/t gold. Bonanza grade chip samples up to 1100 g/t gold over 1.1 m were reported from the trenching program. Gold-bearing quartz veins occur in 57 of the 64 diamond drill holes to date. Visible gold occurs in 8 holes.The Maisie Zone is one of several road-accessiblegold occurrences on SLAM's extensive, wholly owned Menneval property in this relatively unexplored area of New Brunswick.
Photos of visible gold samples in drill-core from the Menneval project can be viewed at our Core Shackpage. Menneval is road accessible and located adjacent to highway 17 in northwestern New Brunswick.
SLAM's Nepisiguit depositstands at 3M tonnes as estimated in a NI43-101 compliant technical available for viewing at www.sedar.com. The A-Zone comprises 2,938,613 tonnes grading 3.16% zinc 0.82% lead, 0.23% copper and 30.64 g/t silver.
The Nepisiguit deposit is located approximately 15 km southwest of the world-class BMS No. 12 mine and 30 km southeast of the Caribou mine owned by Trevali.
SLAM owns a significant silver-lead-zinc resource that is potentially amenable to upgrade by Dense Media Separation as demonstrated by positive results from a recent DMS test (see news) on the Nash Creek deposit.
Gold intervals up to 274 g/t over 0.5 m within a 16.85 m interval grading 16.45 g/t have been encountered in 38 of the 47 holes drilled. Reserve Creek is located near the Ring of Fire in northwestern Ontario. Development of infrastructure proposed by governments and other firms in this area will enhance the potential viability of the Reserve Creek deposit.
3M Tonne Inferred Resource Estimate for Nepisiguit
A NI43-101 Technical Report estimates the Nepisiguit deposit at 3M tonnes. The near-surface deposit is potentially amenable to open pit mining methods. Drilling indicates the deposit is open at depth. Click below for more information.
