Drilling Intersects a 55.4m Sulphide
Zone at Lynn Lake Nickel Project
Success in the first drill hole testing a newly identified pipe-like
geophysical anomaly at the priority Fraser Lake Complex
Innovative geophysical survey defined several pipe-like conductive bodies linking
into areas of drill-defined nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide mineralisation within the
Fraser Lake Complex at Lynn Lake.
The initial drill hole of a two-hole program testing one of these anomalies
intersected a 55.4 metres (downhole) sulphide zone on the margin of an interpreted
mafic/ultramafic intrusive pipe.
The targeted geophysical anomaly extends from near surface to at least 700 metres
Samples have been submitted for laboratory analysis with results to be released
when available – further drilling planned, subject to results.
Corazon’s Managing Director, Mr. Brett Smith, stated: “The most significant outcome from this drilling is proving that
our new geophysical techniques can identify the targeted magmatic sulphides, as well as these late, metal-rich
Newly released paper discusses MT applications and implications in the Red Lake Greenstone belt following Metal Earth initiative using SPARTAN MT .

A magnetotelluric (MT) study across the Red Lake greenstone belt of the western Superior craton, Canada, images a 50-km-long north-dipping conductor (<20 Ω·m) at 20–25 km
depth and subvertical conductors spatially correlated with crustal-scale shear zones and
large orogenic gold deposits. The conductors are interpreted to be the conductivity signature
of the deep crustal source of the auriferous fluids and pathways of the orogenic gold system. The geophysical results, supported by existing geochemical and fluid inclusion studies,
suggest that the Au- and CO2-rich fluids responsible for gold mineralization were released
by devolatilization of supracrustal rocks underthrust to mid- to lower-crustal levels during
subduction. This MT study links shallow gold mineralization to a deep crustal source region,
demonstrating the connection between a crustal suture zone and the formation of orogenic
gold deposits in an Archean greenstone belt.
