A Lake Cu-Sn-Zn Property
- Option to acquire 100%, 2.5% NSR Atlantic Vanadium Corporation
- 6 claims containing 78 units covering 17.2 km2
- Located in southern New Brunswick within the Charlotte county, NTS map 21G07
- The claims are located < 20 km from the W-Mo Mount Pleasant deposit associated with hydrothermally porphyritic granites intruding intracaldera Late Devonian volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Piskahegan Group.
The geology reveals a series of Late Devonian porphyritic, equigranular, fined-grained or seriate biotite±hornblende monzogranite, biotite microgranite plutons hosting endogranitic, granophile-element Sn-, W-, Mo-, Zn-, Bi-, and U-bearing greisen/sheeted veins. The rocks belong to the Mount Douglas Granite which constitutes a unit of the Saint George Plutonic suite.
The property was prospected during the late summer and fall of 2018. A total of 32 mineralized monzogranite rock samples, mostly floats, were recovered from various parts of the property including from one 25 x1 m trench. Assay values reveal 22 samples with significant copper values (0.12-7.96 %), 10 with Pb concentrations > 2600 ppm (0.26-1.43 %) and 11 having Zn values ranging from 0.1 to > 1%. High values of Ag (23-100 ppm), Mo (1990-2880 ppm), W (>200 ppm) are accompanied by anomalous Li, Sn, Bi concentrations as a testimony of the association of the mineralization to the endograntic granophile element type. These encouraging results incite Genius Metals to instigate a new exploration campaign on the A-Lake property beginning next spring.
