Affinity Metals holds a 100% owned mineral property in Quebec, Canada that adjoins Osisko’s world class Windfall Lake project claim holdings. The property resides on the Eastern portion of the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
The Abitibi Greenstone Belt, along with the Fraser Institute deeming it the 4th most attractive mining jurisdiction in the world, is home to dozens of world class deposits including:
- Kirkland Lake
- Detour Lake
- Larder Lake
The property consists of 96 mineral tenures spanning 5143.15 hectares and straddles the very prospective main lithological contact and structural trend along strike to the northeast from Osisko’s rapidly growing Windfall Lake deposit within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
The Abitibi is renowned as the world’s largest mineral-rich greenstone geological belt. The geological structure spans 450 km long by 150 km wide and runs through the Canadian Shield, from west of Timmins, Ontario, then eastward to Chibougamau, Quebec. The region’s history hosts over 100 mines that have aggregately produced an excess of 170 million ounces of gold. While the belt is known primarily for its prolific gold mines, base metal production in the region is also substantial at over 400 million ounces of silver, 15 billion tons of copper, and 35 billion tons of zinc.
The Windfall Lake Project is reportedly one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada and continues to grow as more discoveries are made. Osisko recently reported Windfall Lake indicated resources of 2.39 million tonnes at 9.1 g/t Au (1,206,000 oz. gold) and inferred resources of 10.61 million tonnes at 8.4 g/t. (3,938,000 oz. gold). Osisko has defined the resource approximately 2000m on strike and 1500m depth, and continues to drill at an impressive pace. They hit the million meter drilling mark earlier this year in anticipation of an updated resource estimate in the later part of 2020 and a feasibility study to come out next summer.
Affinity’s North Windfall claims are located along the contact of a dioritic gneiss terrain and a granitic terrains . It is strategically positioned directly along the Windfall and Romeo faults and is located approximately 9 km NNE from Osisko’s Windfall Lake project.
The Windfall fault, which is interpreted to represent the ductile level root feeder system that plumbs and controls the location of Osisko’s Windfall deposit model, is interpreted to continue northeast into Affinity’s Windfall North claim holdings along strike where it diverges into two separate structural traces and subducts beneath the granitic pluton.
Affinity staked the North Windfall claims based on the interpreted northeast trend of the Windfall Lake Fault from the Windfall Lake gold deposit and plans to conduct a geological and geophysical data compilation in order to generate drill targets.
