Lon

The historical Lon deposit, discovered in the 1950s, is a steep-east dipping, shallow north plunging zone of base metal mineralization with a strike length of approximately 150 metres and a plunge extent of a minimum 600 metres. It consists of two near zones of roughly equal size, shape and attitude. Mineralization consists of disseminated to massive pyrrhotite, trace to 20% pyrite, trace to 25% chalcopyrite, trace to 25% sphalerite and trace amounts of gahnite. Averages thickness is approximately 2.0 metres. The host rock is an intensely altered (garnet, staurolite, sericite, biotite, k-feldspar), structurally folded and faulted felsic volcanic rock.  The deposit has been drill tested to a depth of 400 metres and is open in all directions.

The DC Zone is a surface occurrence of zinc mineralization. Gahnite and sphalerite are exposed on surface and assays returned values up to 6.12% zinc.  Typical VMS alteration is associated with the host rocks proximal to the DC Zone over a considerable distance.  A historical geophysical anomaly below the zone has a strike length 600 metres and remains untested by drilling.
