Apollo (Au)


  • 100% Tarku, acquired by project generation
  • 104 claims, 5,494.56 ha
  • 50 km east from Matagami
  • Cree communities of Waswanipi (Category III lands), Eeyou Istchee James-Bay territory
  • Year-round access via the Route de la Baie-James or the Route 1055

Geological Context

Favourable context: Orogenic gold associated with alkaline rocks and porphyritic intrusions

  • Rivière Waswanipi regional Shear Zone; north and south faults
  • Shearing affects:
    • alkaline lavas
    • polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming-type) and
    • porphyritic intrusions
  • Few drill holes in the area
  • Rivière Waswanipi showing: 2.36 g/t Au over 1 m associated with 1% pyrite and fuchsite in a qtz-fsp porphyry dyke and an altered lapilli tuff (located 300 metres south of the fault; drilling in 1991: GM 51193)

Observed metallotects related to the geological model

  • Ductile regional shear zone
  • Historical showing: Rivière Waswanipi (2.36 g/t Au over 1m)
  • Metamorphic transition zone favourable for gold mineralisation (CONSOREM study)
  • Favourable paleopressure zones (CONSOREM study)
  • Hematite-magnetite-carbonate alteration
  • Anomalous gold values associated with porphyritic dykes
  • Gold values in the heavy mineral concentrate of till samples (Inco, 1988)
  • Concentrations of gold grains in till (Finneth Exploration, 1987)
