The Sicotte property is located 16 km east of the Selbaie Mine, which produced 53 Mt @ 1% Cu, 1.9% Zn, 0.6 g/t Au and 4.1 g/t Ag between 1982 and 2005. The property geology hosted felsic rock related to the Selbaie Mine sequence, andesitic rocks and mafic and felsic intrusions (quartz-feldspath porphyry) belonging to the Brouillian volcanic complex. The property encloses three gold showings of interest including the Ruisseau Twinning showing, characterised by a network of quartz-tourmaline veins hosted in altered diorite affected by a carbonate and sericite alteration and a dissemination of pyrite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite. High gold values ranging between 8 and 54 g/t Au (grab sample) were identified. An important ductile deformation zone of over 50 meters in thickness oriented towards the E-W and strongly altered in carbonate and silica equally affects the diorite of the Ruisseau Twinning showing. In addition, the property also includes the Lac Sicotte NE showing and a drill intersection returned values of 2.5 and 2.3 g/t Au over 1.5 and 1.0m respectively. The mineralization of these showings are associated with a network of quartz veins hosted in carbonate and silicified felsic rock and contains dissemination of pyrite and chalcopyrite. An induced polarization geophysic survey ("IP") is proposed to define the mineralized system. Drilling will follow to test the high-priority targets.
