This Joshua Gold Resources property consists of five legacy mining claims converted into 35 boundary claims as defined under the new Ontario Mining Act. Through its option with Kencana Technical Services Inc., Joshua Gold Resources has the sole rights to:
- Explore for minerals, and:
- Apply for a mining lease for their extraction
Exploratory History & Assessment
Visible evidence of the trenching and stripping completed between 1986 and 2010 by Prospector Charles Mortimer and Swayze Resources Ltd. that revealed quartz stringers, veins, and altered wall rock associated with the historic Hopkins 1 vein.
The 2010-2011 Red Pine Exploration Inc. work consisted of line-cutting, induced polarization geophysical imaging, trenching, stripping, and diamond drilling. Red Pine extending trenches and identified several anomalous gold values associated with quartz-carbonate altered volcanic and quartz veins.
Next Steps & Opportunities
Joshua Gold’s future exploration of this property include:
- using resistivity-IP surveys of shallow to deep targets to determine where to test potential mineralization targets with a diamond drilling program
- completing a geological mapping program, integrating current diamond drilling and geophysical results into a new model to target additional diamond drill targets for a follow up program
