Granduc Project Geology

Geological Setting and Mineralization

The Granduc Claim group straddles the South Unuk shear zone, which marks the boundary between Late Triassic Stuhini metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks to the west, and the mainly volcanic rocks of the Early to Middle Jurassic Hazelton Group to the east.

The deposit is completely hosted by sheared rocks of the Triassic series. It has been interpreted as a Besshi-type volcanogenicmassive sulphide (VMS) copper deposit.

The deposit itself consists of multiple high-grade massive and semi-massive sulphide lenses that have undergone varying amounts of deformation. These are divided into a Main Zone and a North Zone. Previous mining was only performed on the Main Zone.View Technical Report.

2010 Exploration Review

The 2010 program was designed to confirm the mineralization in the Main Zone of the Granduc deposit. Over a period of approximately six weeks, 18 NQ drillholes were completed, totalling 8,300 metres. Sulphide mineralization was intersected in all drillholes.

2011 Exploration Review

The 2011 program was designed to discover additional mineralization along trend within the Main and South Zones of the Granduc deposit. From June to September, 58 NQ drill holes were completed, totalling 30,705 metres.

2012 Exploration Review

The 2012 program was designed to increase the inferred resource and expand the overall mineralization footprint. The focus of initial drilling was the southern portion of the Main Zone, targeting higher grade mineralization beneath the South Leduc Glacier. Later in the program, the focus was the North Zone with the objective increasing the copper resource. From June to September, 32 NQ drill holes were completed totalling 23,000 metres
