Hinterland holds a 100% interest in the 83-claim (3,379-hectare) Mozart property, located approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Val-d’Or, Quebec. The property covers an under-explored, 10 kilometre-long segment of the Carpentier-Courville deformation corridor, which is known for both shear-hosted gold and volcanic massive sulphide (VMS)-type deposits.
In December 2011, Hinterland drilled a total of 1,186 metres in seven holes on the property. The drilling encountered primarily interlayered intermediate tuff and siltstone, with numerous layers of massive sulphide. Holes MZ11-01 to -05 encountered a relatively un-deformed quartz-diorite intrusion. A number of gold-bearing intervals were intercepted on the upper and lower contacts of the quartz-diorite and in individual quartz veins. The best intersection, encountered in hole MZ11-03, was 0.38gpt Au over 6.0m from 76.3m. This interval is marked by strong shearing, quartz-carbonate veining and breccia textures along the upper contact of the quartz diorite body.
In September 2014, Hinterland completed a 115 line-kilometre electromagnetic survey to help delineate potential shear-type gold structures and VMS-type horizons. Eleven new target areas were detected by the survey.
Hinterland has identified 11 new geophysical targets, and intends to investigate these targets with drilling in 2018. It is currently seeking equity or joint venture financing to fund a 750 metre drill program estimated to cost $100,000.
