Sim – Witchwood
The Sim – Witchwood property is an exploration project located 300 kilometres north-northeast of Thunder Bay. This property comprises two separate blocks of claims separated by approximately 16 – 17 kilometres but both are close to the Ogoki Forest Access Road. Both lie on the southeast side of the hitherto unrecognised major eastern extension of the Uchi Archean volcanic belt where it is cut by a substantial quantity of Proterozoic dykes. The Uchi Archean belt extends east from near Red Lake, Ontario where it was host to rich copper-zinc massive sulphide mines, through Pickle Lake (known for its gold production) and the Thierry nickel mine, and now traced through to the east of Sim Lake. The Sim and Witchwood claims cover targets on the southeast side of the belt while the Weese Lake claims cover the northwest side of the belt. All properties were located based on recent high resolution airborne geophysical surveys by the Ontario Government plus historic exploration records dating back fifty years and more.
The Sim Lake property comprises 64 claim units, 100% owned, covering an arcuate aeromagnetic anomaly which is interpreted as a mafic to ultramafic intrusive near or at the eastern edge of the volcanic belt. It may be related to northwesterly-trending Proterozoic dykes. Prospecting has revealed boulders of mafic to ultramafic intrusives but no outcrop of the ultramafic rocks yet.
The Witchwood River property comprises 48 claim units, 100% owned, covering a Z-folded aeromagnetic anomaly with coincident electromagnetic anomalies interpreted as a plunging tightly-folded structure which may multiply the thickness of the ultramafic rock unit extrapolated through that area. Aeromagnetic anomalies interpreted as Proterozoic dykes cut the structure providing a complexly deformed environment for mineral enrichments.
Initial work on both properties will include grid cutting, mapping, prospecting, geochemical and geophysical surveys.
