ABOUT THE DIXIE PROJECT
The Dixie Project is 100% owned, and consists of 9,140 hectares of contiguous claims that extend over 22 kilometres, and is located approximately 25 kilometres southeast of the town of Red Lake Ontario (a 15 minute drive). The project is accessible year-round via a paved highway which runs the length of the northern claim boundary, and through a network of well-maintained logging roads.
The Dixie property hosts two principle styles of gold mineralization:
- High-grade gold in quartz veins and silica-sulphide replacement zones (Dixie Limb and Hinge). Hosted by mafic volcanic rocks, and localized near regional-scale D2 fold axes. These mineralization styles are also typical of the significant mined deposits of the Red Lake district.
- High-grade disseminated gold with broad moderate to lower grade envelopes (LP Fault). Interpreted to traverse the Dixie property for approximately 18 kilometres of strike length and currently drilled along 4 kilometres of strike length. High-grade gold mineralization is controlled by structural and geological contacts, and moderate to lower-grade disseminated gold surrounds and flanks the high-grade intervals. The dominant gold-hosting stratigraphy consists of felsic sediments and volcanic units.
