Gilmour South

The Gilmour Brook South zinc-lead prospect is located about 20km south-southeast of the Brunswick No 12 mine. It is hosted within the Brunswick Horizon, at the top of the Nepisiguit Falls Formation, and exhibits mineralization in the style and type as that found both at the Brunswick No. 6 and No. 12 mines. This “Brunswick Horizon” sulphide mineralization is commonly present as semi-massive to massive occurrences of stratiform zinc-lead sulphide mineralization that has been intersected intermittently over a strike of 1400 m and locally to vertical depths of 700 metres. Historical drilling by Noranda Exploration during the period 1998 to 2000 intersected significant grade and widths of zinc-rich mineralization in two lenses approximately 400 metres apart, such as:

  • GS-98-14: 7.63% Pb, 3.57% Zn / 2.89m
  • GS-99-22: 1.02% Pb, 9.61% Zn, 0.195 Cu, 32.3g/t Ag / 7.98m
  • GS-00-38: 1.3% Pb, 7.00% Zn / 7.3m
