Geological Setting of the Muskrat Dam Project

The Muskrat Dam Project contains an airborne geophysical anomaly hosted within rusty weathering metavolcanic rocks and meta-gabbro sills containing 1 to 2% pyrite, pyrrhotite and trace chalcopyrite returning anomalous gold, copper, and nickel values. Metamorphosed iron formations within the RFR Greenstone Belt are possibly analogous to mineralization at the Musselwhite Gold Mine.
