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.
