The Property is located within the Swayze Greenstone Belt of northern Ontario, an intercalated sequence of archean metavolcanics, metasediments and felsic intrusions that host numerous significant gold deposits. It consists of historical patents that grant full ownership of the mining and surface rights to the party that is awarded title after settlement or conclusion of legal proceedings (Court File No. CV-13-480311). Joshua Gold owes no taxes or levies and has no planned exploration work on the Kenty Property until the resolution of these legal proceedings.
Historical patents contain the area’s main economic deposit. Exploration History, Donovan (1965) mapped Swayze and Dore townships at a scale of 1:50,000. The Geological Survey of Canada mapped the Swayze Greenstone Belt at a scale of 1:50,00. From 1930 to 1934 Kenty Gold Mines sank two shafts and completed a diamond drilling program that identified several auriferous quartz veins. Shaft No. 1 was sunk to a total of 500 ft (152m), and lateral development took place at the 250 foot (76m), 375 foot (114m), and 500 foot (152m) levels. Shaft No. 2 was sunk to a depth of 534 feet (162m), with lateral development on the 290 foot (88m) and 525 foot (160m) levels.
In 1947 Erndale Mines Ltd. acquired the property and drilled 8 DDH totalling 498 meters. The company dewatered the mine and extracted 1,3333 tonnes of ore from scaling the No. 1 vein. Sampling averaged 0.92 g/t for the program.
In 1983 Heron Resources carried out a magnetic and selfpotential geophysical survey, collected humus samples, carried out a mapping program, and conducted underground sampling on the veins via access from the No. 1 shaft. Emerald Isle Resources’ 1986 exploration program consisted of bulk sampling and stripping that identified an hematitic zone with quartz stockworks to the southeast of the No. 2 shaft.
Several diamond drill holes were completed to test for gold mineralization around the No. 2 shaft, with the best grades occurring in quartz-ankerite-pyrite veins associated with felsic porphyry dykes. For further technical info:
