Historically, this contact was the main deposit of ore in the Gowganda mining camp which produced 60.1 million ounces of silver and 1.3 million pounds of cobalt from 1910 to 1989. In addition, the identification of targets using geophysics has proven to be invaluable. Three-dimensional induced polarization (“3D-IP”) surveys at East Gowganda identified several high chargeability anomalies which could indicate sulphide mineralization as well as a number of low chargeability which were interpreted as alteration zones. potential.
The summer and fall fieldwork program, including prospecting, geological mapping, rock sampling, targeting of known cobalt-silver mineral showings and historical work, aims to identify highly new targets. priority for drilling, trenching and ground geophysical surveys.
