The Proteus Property

The property is located in the Cobalt silver camp, which has a long history of silver production, with associated cobalt. The property is underlain by a sequence of Archean volcanics, unconformably overlain by Huronian Cobalt sediments. These formations have been intruded by the Proterozoic-age Nipissing diabase sill. Faulting, on both a regional and local scale, has been identified on the property in both surface mapping and in drill cores. Polymetallic veining, and especially pink/white carbonate veins have also been identified. Thus all the necessary geological components of accepted mineralization models for Ag-Co have been identified on the property.

The property has been explored for silver since the early 1900's. Fifty-five diamond drill holes were completed in three campaigns in 1985-1986, for a total of 31,855 ft (9 709 m). This drilling identified numerous pink and white carbonate veins, with associated significant Ag values as well as the presence of cobalt arsenide minerals. The best value from drill core was 23.34 oz Ag/T over 0.5 ft (800 g Ag/t over 0.15m) in a carbonate vein. Geophysical surveys (IP and Resistivity) were completed in 2011 which has better refined drill targets for future exploration.
