Exploratory History & Assessment
Davis Township is primarily underlain by Huronian sediments of the Cobalt Group which have been intruded by broad Nipissing gabbro sills and dike (Thomson and Card, 1963). The terrain in this region is fairly rugged, characterized by prominent NWest trending ridges reaching elevations of up to 200 feet above lake level. These ridges are generally parallel to the gabbro unit which hosts gold-bearing veins in a series of parallel and sub-parallel fractures (McLeod, 1988).
The King Solomon Mines property features a prominent North-West striking Nipissing gabbro sill with a width of up to 3,500 feet. This gabbro sill was the focus of this investigation, as it harbors numerous sequences of quartz-carbonate-filled fractures which also trend NWest. Some of these quartz veins are found to contain pyrite, chalcopyrite, and gold which may occur in native form (McLeod, 1988).
