Flat Landing Brook
The Flat Landing Brook VMS deposit is also hosted in the Brunswick horizon and is located immediately to the west of the former Brunswick No. 6 mine where this key mineralized stratigraphy has again been brought to surface by a “Thrust Fault Repetition” of contemporaneous stratigraphy that is similar to the Brunswick Belt. Concentrated zinc-lead-silver mineralization occurs in four mineralized horizons within a 100 to 200 metre thick sequence of the Brunswick Horizon. Sphalerite and galena mineralization are associated with significant iron sulphide developments that are typical of the Bathurst Camp. These horizons grade laterally and vertically from zinc/lead-rich massive to pyrite-rich massive/disseminated mineralization and then to magnetite-chlorite-chert-sulphide-iron formation. These observations and the presence of significant alteration suggest proximity to the mineralizing hydrothermal vent. High-grade intervals in drill core of greater than 10 % zinc occur within material grading between 3 and 10% zinc and attest to the potential of the system. Historical resources from the late 1970’s, non-compliant under NI 43-101, are reported in the public domain and are estimated to be 1.27 million tonnes of 5.62% zinc, 1.29% lead, and 23 g/t silver.
These historical estimates were obtained from the New Brunswick Government Mineral Deposits database. Readers are cautioned that Osisko Metals has not completed the work required to independently analyze and verify the results of previous operators nor has a qualified person done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Osisko Metals is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources, and it believes these historical estimates provide an indication of the potential of the property and are reported because they are deemed relevant to the description of the properties.
