Arrowhead Property

Highlights: 

  • The Arrowhead property is a continuous claim block of 400.76 hectares in the north-east corner of the Joannes Township.
  • Agnico-Eagle fully surrounds the Arrowhead property and has recently conducted a significant drilling campaign to the east of the claims.
  • Previous drill holes on the property intercepted 40 gold-copper mineralized zones, enhancing the potential for quartz-carbonate auriferous veins associated with E-V trending faults on the shear zone.
  • The project has a favourable postion on the Cadillac-Larder Lake Fault and represents an attractive target for future exploration. 
  • First prospecting on the property started in the 1920’s with additional drilling by SOQUEM and Agnico-Eagle Mine LTD.  
    • Gold values up to 45.05 g/t were obtained over appreciable widths. 
  • Geochemistry survey conducted in 2015 shows favourable geochemical signatures and rock alteration on the property. 

Property Mineralization: 

  • Mineralized intercepts enhance the property’s potential for multiple types of mineralization:
    • Gold-rich VMS deposits like at Boursquet #2 and LA Ronde Gold Mine
    • Gold-rich plymetallic veins, like at Doyan and Mouska gold mines 
    • Quartz-carbonate auriferous veins associated with regional E-W trending faults and sheer zones
  • Two quartz-carbonate veins have been found on the property known as veins “A” & “B” and dip steeply to the north, parallel to schistosity. 
  • New mineralized veins are thought to exist as a result of previous exploration work conducted – modern exploration techniques are needed to prove their economic potential.
