About Porter Canyon
The 100% owned Porter Canyon claims occupy a pediment covered bench to the west of the former operating Quito Mine, a classic Carlin-type deposit. Exploration work to date has discovered Carlin-type mineralization in outcrop and float, and provides the impetus for follow-up drilling. Projected geology from the adjacent rangefront suggests the claims cover an open shallowly plunging, north-westerly trending, breached anticline which is cored by Roberts Mountains Formation and capped at least in part by Upper-plate lithologies. The northern limb of the anticline is fault bounded and shows extensive solution collapse and intermittent mineralized jasperoids over a 1.5 km strike length. The anticline is projected to intersect the western edge of the Quito Lower-plate window approximately 1,200 metres west of the rangefront. Management believes this is an ideal setting to host a large Carlin-type gold deposit.
