Serpent-Radisson

General Information

  • Property covers 50,843 hectares (988 claims) and is 100% held by Harfang (33F02, 33F03, 33F06); 2% NSR to Sunridge Capital Corp and 2% to Gilbert Lamothe on 86 claims
  • Located 80 km southeast of Radisson and 60 km from the La Grande airport; adjacent to the Billy-Diamond paved road; 2 powerlines transect the property (RS: remove extra space between ‘transect’ and ‘the’)
  • Accessible by ground and air transportation, and by boat from Lake Sakami
  • The eastern limit of the property is next to the LaPointe Gold Deposit (Quebec Precious Metals Corporation)
  • Project located in an under-explored area outside known greenstone belts; near the contact between the La Grande and Opinaca subprovinces
  • Geology dominated by the Langelier Complex (Archean tonalitic basement) and the Duncan Intrusions with discontinuous slivers of volcano-sedimentary rocks (Yasinski Group and Apple Formation) and late intrusions of the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite
  • Gold is hosted in quartz veins, shear zones and/or altered facies in a differentiated mafic-intermediate intrusion (Mascha Intrusion) and in mafic to ultramafic dykes metamorphosed to the upper greenschist to lower amphibolite facies

Highlights

  • Discovery of more than 50 orogenic gold and intrusion-related Cu-Au-Ag±Bi±Te mineralized occurrences
  • Gold-rich occurrences in shear zones and quartz veins in mafic and intermediate intrusive rocks (eg. 7.78 g/t Au over 6.15 m [channel, Moby-Dick], up to 186 g/t Au and 200 g/t Ag [grab]
  • Mista Cu-Au-Ag±Bi±Te prospect defined over at least 350 m strike length, up to 1.00% Cu, 0.21 g/t Au and 7.9 g/t Ag over 12.9 m RS: remove extra space between ‘prospect’ and ‘defined’)
  • Structural gold-bearing corridor at least 18 km long defined by a series of WNW-ESE and NE-SW shear zones
  • Gold-in-till anomaly covering >8 km2  
  • Till samples with high gold (up to 432 grains) and scheelite grain counts, high ratio of pristine grains suggests proximal bedrock source
  • Drill tested (70 holes, 14,950 m) confirms gold intervals up-ice of the gold-in-till anomaly and under surface showings
  • Some of the best intervals: 4.09 g/t Au over 8.00 m [SER-21-029], 4.33 g/t Au over 7.00 m [SER-21-035], 1.64 g/t Au over 22.40 m [LSR-21-001, Goldhawk]

Upcoming Exploration Programs

  • Summer 2022: Prospecting in unexplored parts of the property, trenching and detailed mapping, geochemical surveys (till and/or soil)
  • Fall 2022 or Winter 2023: Additional drilling following the completed merge of the database of the former Serpent and Radisson projects
