South Wawa Gold Property


The South Wawa Property is located in the northeast corner of Naveau Township about 10 km southeast of the Town of Wawa. The property consists of two claim blocks consisting of 16 units totaling 260 Ha. The property is situated north of the Michipicoten River and is approximately 2.5 km long and 1 km wide.

         The South Wawa Gold Property is located in the historic mining camp south of Wawa that includes the Surluga, Jubilee, Parkhill, Grace, and others. The Argo property area surrounds the historical Centennial Gold Mine and is on strike from the Norwalk Mine.

         The property is underlain by the Centennial Stock, a granodiorite intrusion of similar age as the Jubilee Stock which hosts many of the past producers to the north.

         The historic mines to the north follow a NNE trend, similar to the Jubilee Stock and associated shear zones; mines and prospects in the south follow the NW trend of the Centennial Stock and shear zones. 

         Gold mineralization on the property occurs on the Valentti Prospect, which consists of NW trending SW dipping shear-hosted quartz veins within granodiorite host rocks. Average gold grade from channel sampling is 4 g/T Au over an average width of 3.4 metres and an exposed length of 60 metres.

         Historical soil sampling identified a number of gold and pathfinder element anomalies near the Valentti Vein that have not been explored. The main Valentti Vein has not been drilled.

         Extensions of the Centennial Gold Mine vein system strike onto Argo Gold property to the NW and SE. The Centennial Mine consists of a series of shear hosted quartz veins trending NW and hosted in granodiorite.
