The Fox ore body is a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit, and is comprised of two discrete lenses-each within its own stockwork zone. The ore lenses show conventional metal zonation with zinc sulphides lying stratigraphically above copper sylphides. Proximity to ore is indicated by pronounced geochemical enrichment and depletion trends. Little drilling has ever been done at depth and represents potential. (Project details can be found at:
