Abstract: Allow Dale Leckie to guide you to Alberta’s most scenic sites. Leckie tells the intriguing story of Alberta’s landscape evolution from Waterton Lakes National Park, to Dinosaur Provincial Park, into the Prairies, and across the North.
Abstract: PJX has compiled historical data for the District and infilled data gaps with new prospecting, mapping, geochem sampling, geophysics, trenching, drilling and computer modelling. We will present results of this work and the deposit discovery potential of the Sullivan Mining District that has been missed.
Abstract: The field of artificial intelligence (AI) contains exciting possibilities, over-hyped promises, and everything in between. AI applications in the geosciences are no different, however, the nature of uncertainty in the geosciences plays a crucial role in AI tools. The talk will be an overview of AI and knowledge engineering and how it pertains to mineral exploration, resources and mining.
Abstract: In December 2016 Osisko Mining Incorporated drilled a reconnaissance hole 600 metres from the known Windfall gold deposit in an unexplored area. What resulted was nothing short of extraordinary: the discovery of the Lynx gold deposit, arguably the richest portion of the Windfall system. Located in the Urban-Barry Greenstone belt beside the Windfall deposit (discovered in 2004), the Lynx gold deposit grew to 3 million ounces Au (indicated + inferred) in three years, currently sits at 3.6 million ounces Au, and continues to expand with the current drill program. What makes the Lynx deposit so extraordinary is its incredible growth in ounces and grade in such a short time, its geological predictability, and its location. Key drivers for the successful discovery and definition of Lynx include Osisko’s philosophies of drilling, courage, and patience.
Abstract: ATAC Resources’ Rackla Gold Property is a 185 km-long exploration project located in Central Yukon. The property has been primarily explored for gold, and hosts numerous styles of mineralization, including intrusion-related gold and polymetallic targets at the west end (Rau Project), Carlin-type gold mineralization at the east (Osiris Project), and orogenic gold system discovered this past year. A true grassroots discovery, stemming from regional government silt samples, ATAC has now defined 1.7 million ounces of gold (12.4 Mt at 4.23 g/t) at its Carlin-type Osiris deposit and demonstrated positive economics at the intrusion-related carbonate-replacement Tiger deposit. The district-scale potential of this property is just beginning to be revealed, with 15 other Carlin-type gold prospects, and 22 other gold and/or base metal intrusion-related targets.
Abstract: Since entering the Jade space, Jade Leader has now acquired a portfolio of 6, 100% owned properties in the United States, on all of which Jade (var: Nephrite) has been identified. The most advanced projects have now been advanced either by mechanical trenching or drilling, demonstrating that the Jade systems can show some predictability and continuity as a target mineralization style. The talk will focus on the various types of Jades found to date and explore some basic geological concepts of Jade formation.
Abstract: Due to Covid-19, all future in-person activities have been canceled or moved online until further notice.
Abstract: The Pilar property is located south of Hermosillo in Sonora, Mexico. Pilar contains high grade gold and silver. This is an epithermal style of mineralization, which is structurally controlled hydrothermal gold and silver deposition within the structures. The property has over 17,700 m of previous drilling focused in three areas from surface to about 125 m depth and remains open at depth. Sampling results show high grade gold and silver intercepts in drilling, surface rock grab samples, soil sampling, and in trenching. The high-grade gold and silver assay results have revealed NW-SE trending zones in line with the areas of focused drilling. This provides new zones to explore and develop to expand from the drilled areas.
Abstract: The presentation will cover Lithium Chile's history as well as background forces that are driving recent movements in the price of Lithium. A quick overview of advantages Chile has over some of the other South American Lithium Producers, as well as a brief review of Lithium Chile’s prospects and recent exploration activity. Presentation will conclude with recent unrest in Chile and the impact on mining in Chile as a result.
Abstract: Forum Energy Metals Corp. is a Canadian based mineral resource company exploring for energy metals in Saskatchewan, Canada’s #1 mining jurisdiction.
