The Morgan Project consists of 36 claims currently 100%-held by Rockcliff Metals. Within the property boundaries is a historic Morgan zinc deposit resource and two nearby gold showings called the Finlayson Find and Blue Zone.
The Morgan zinc deposit is a VMS style deposit that is hosted within an interpreted felsic dome nestled above a thick blanket of andesitic volcaniclastics. The volcanic rocks belong to the Amisk Group of the Flin Flon – Snow Lake greenstone belt. The VMS body averages 2-3 m thick, 60 m wide and 500 m long. Limited drilling on the Morgan zinc deposit has identified 272,000 tons grading on average 15.0% Zinc and 3.4gpt gold. The deposit remains open for potential expansion with additional drilling.
The Finlayson Find is a gold showing that consists of two shoots of auriferous veining that can be traced for 250 m. The most significant gold intersection was 22.6gpt over 1.7 m (historical drill hole B-28). It also has a surface expression in a trench and returned channel samples of trace up to 19.95gpt gold over 2.3 m. The Blue Zone is another set of gold veins 250 m west of Finlayson Find. Data over the Blue Zone is sparse, but it could extend as long as Finlayson Find. The best value in shallow historical drilling intersected 5.76gpt gold over 0.58 m.
Exploration potential for VMS is the highest over Irene Lake, SCC Zone, and WC prospects within the Morgan Project area. They are hosted within favourable stratigraphy. They may show alterations that are specific indicators of VMS deposits, like epidote and talc carbonate schist. Historical drilling intersected elevated metal values without strong evidence of drilling into fault zones. Specifically, SCC Zone has an untested downhole pulse EM anomaly that is in extremely favourable geology.
The target for Morgan is 1.0Mt of high-grade zinc and gold mineralization.
