ShapshotThe Company would like to note that its decision to proceed to extract mineralized material from the Lexington, Golden Crown and May Mac mines for processing at its facility located at the Greenwood Precious Metals Project was not based on a feasibility study.

The Lexington mine and Zip Mill complex reverted to care and maintenance status when the Company came under financial duress in mid-2018. Current activities include operational pumping to maintain the Lexington mine pumped out, and water quality monitoring and security at Lexington and Zip Mill.

Deposit type

  • Breccia pipe / Stockwork

Summary:

The Lexington-Grenoble Deposit is a porphyry-hosted, high-sulphidation gold/copper pyritic sheeted stockwork. There is a strong affinity to a porphyry copper hydrothermal system by virtue of its fluid composition and alteration but strongly influenced by structure.

The geological setting of the Lexington Property is dominated by a major 600 m wide tectonic shear zone, the No. 7 Fault. The Lexington-Grenoble Deposit is focused above or at the Lower Serpentinite/Dacite contact (a subthrust of the No. 7 Fault) and is composed of massive pyritelesser chalcopyrite (and rarely magnetite) veins, veinlets and disseminations. The series of shallow to moderately dipping en echelon overlapping sheeted massive sulfide zones, stringers and disseminations are hosted within the basal 25 m of a dacitic pyroclastic unit to the “Dacite” unit, confined to an area 525 m along its long axis, 20-60 m wide normal to the long axis and 25 m thick vertically.
