The terrain is generally flat and averages 290 meters above sea level. It is punctuated with a few rolling hills of about 60 meters high. The water system is well developed with many lakes and rivers, and the drainage is dominated by the Kinojévis River, which consists of several streams and swampy areas. The vegetation is comprised of approximately 30% deciduous and 70% coniferous.


The Ranger property is located at the boundary of the north and south volcanic zones of the Archean sub-province of Abitibi and the Superior Province. This Archean sub-province consists of ultramafic, mafic and felsic volcanics, clastic sediments and tonalitic and granitic, pre to post-tectonic intrusions (Lamothe and Harris 2006). The different volcano-sedimentary units are separated by major deformation zones, such as the Destor-Porcupine, Parfouru and Manneville faults (Legault and al. 2005). The volcano-sedimentary assemblages are usually limited by narrow bands of clastic sediments that coincide with major structures. These zones constitute a braided system with orientations ranging generally from west/northwest to east/southeast and east-west.

On the property, detrital sediments (turbidites and sandstone) from the Kewagama group are dominant; some passages of basalt flows and gabbroic sills are present in the southern part of the property. Although the property has no known showing (Avramtchev and Lebel-Drolet 1981), it is located in the Porcupine-Destor corridor, which constitutes one of the most important gold metallotects in the sub-province of Abitibi (Legault and al. 2005).

Five types of gold mineralization are present:

  • 1. Quartz and carbonate veins strongly altered with iron carbonates
  • 2. Disseminated sulphides associated with a porphyry intrusion
  • 3. Epithermal veins with anomalous concentrations of Zn, Pb and Hg
  • 4. Argentiferous quartz veins
  • 5. Disseminated sulphides associated with leaching and sulphides associated with
    volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS).

At the Fayolle deposit, located 5 km northwest of this sampled area, a resource estimate (Carrier 2012) gives an indicated resource of 548,500 tonnes at 5.75 g/t Au (101,326 tonnes) for a cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t Au. This deposit shows a structural context with a regional dextral sliding movement along the tectonic zone of Porcupine-Destor. The setting of Fayolle’s gold mineralization is synchronous with the opening of a dilatant flexure zone wedged between the Paré Creek and Destor-Manneville shear zones.
