Geological Age: Precambrian  

Geology Comments

Feb 14, 2011 (J Bongfelt) - 'The rocks are Precambrian in age. These consist of metavolcanics with thin bands of metasediments, gabbros, and granites. The field relationship of these rocks indicated that metavolcanics are the oldest rocks and are intruded by both gabbros and granites.' (Kenora AF 52F/11SW, A-1, Boylen, Geological Report, p.3)

Lithology Comments

Feb 14, 2011 (J Bongfelt) - ' Several fractures along this zone show concentrations of magnetite ranging from a few inches to a foot wide, but are surficial features. (Sample 16). Lack of exposures in the critical areas make it difficult to assess the potential of this zone. Field observations lead to the belief that the main zone of mineralization pinches and swells and lies under the s-shaped lake and the swamps in the north and south of it.' (Kenora AF 52F/11SW, A-1, Boylen, Geological Report, p.10)
