Geology Comments

Apr 24, 2017 (C Ravnaas) - “The Snake Bay formation is best exposed west of Cedartree Lake and consist of massive, pillowed and plagioclase phyric flows intruded by synvolcanic gabbro sills.” (OFR5682, pg.4). “A variety of felsic intrusions occur within the volcanic sequence, both as dikes and sills. They have been described as quartz porphyry, feldspar porphyry and quartz-feldspar porphyry are interpreted to predate the Stephan Lake Stock” (Kenora AF 52F05SW, QQQQ-10, 2.55674, Metals Creek Resources, pg.6).

Lithology Comments

Apr 24, 2017 (C Ravnaas) - “New Porphyry – this large felsic intrusive body was located just west of kilometer four on the Cameron Lake Road. This large intrusive body is oriented northwest-southeast and has been traced over a roughly one kilometer strike length being open both to the northwest and southeast. The intrusive unit is anywhere from 50 to 100m wide and appears to correlate with a topographic high in the area.” (Kenora AF 52F05SW, QQQQ-10, Metals Creek Resources, pg.14).
