Three Bluffs Gold Deposit
The Three Bluffs gold project is a structurally controlled lode gold system hosted within oxide facies iron formation and greywackes. The deposit currently hosts a NI 43-101 compliant resource of 4.30 Mt at 4.90 g/t gold for 678,000 ounces gold (indicated) and 4.53Mt at 5.69 g/t gold for 829,600 ounces gold (inferred). Prior to 2012, gold mineralization was drill tested at shallow levels to evaluate open-pittable resource potential along a strike length of 4.2 kilometres. The eastern 1.3 kilometres of the trend is currently the focus of underground resource development and recent drilling has reached depths of 500 metres below surface with mineralization remaining strong and open to depth. Geological modeling of the Three Bluffs gold system has identified several controls on high-grade mineralization including steep east plunging shoots and shallow east plunging fold hinges within iron formation.
