Details

Hinterland holds a 100% interest in the 53-claim (2,178-hectare) Guyberry property, located in Guyenne and Berry townships approximately 95 kilometres northwest of Val-d’Or, Quebec. The property covers a volcanic-intrusive contact marked by the southeast-trending, regional scale Chicobi Deformation Zone (“CDZ”). Previous geophysical surveys completed by Hinterland identified a narrow resistivity high extending over 1.6 kilometres along this contact coincident to the boundary between two magnetic domains. These surveys also revealed numerous disruptions of the magnetic and electromagnetic patterns, inferred to be high-angle, northeast-trending faults. 

In September 2016 Hinterland completed a 26.4 line-kilometre induced polarization and resistivity (“IP/RES”) survey designed to obtain a detailed image of a 2.0 kilometre section of the CDZ in the area of the high resistivity feature referred to above.  The survey clearly defined a narrow, linear resistivity high over 1.3 kilometres interpreted to be the trace of the CDZ.  Of particular interest is a 400 metre segment of the resistivity high that is bounded by two crosscutting, northeast-trending faults.  This segment is inferred to be a dilation zone within the CDZ.  It is well documented that dilation zones along major fault structures allow for circulation of mineral-rich fluids, and are favourable for the precipitation of gold-bearing quartz-carbonate veins, breccias and stockworks.  As such, the inferred dilation zone indicated by the IP/RES survey offers an excellent drill target to test for gold mineralization.

Next Steps

Hinterland has identified a 400-metre segment of the southeast-trending, regional scale Chicobi Deformation Zone that is inferred to be a dilation zone favourable for the precipitation of gold-bearing quartz-carbonate veins, breccias and stockworks.  Hinterland intends to test this target with a 750 metre drill program in 2018 at an estimated cost of $100,000, and is currently seeking equity or joint venture financing to fund the drilling.
