In the Maisy May area, a total of 774 metres were drilled in 4 holes. The primary drill target was a multi-element gold, bismuth, copper, arsenic, and mercury soil anomaly coincident with potential NS and NE trending structures defined from airborne magnetic lineaments. Previous prospecting located a 400 metre-long, northwest trending train of siliceous float material. Selected samples of the float returned anomalous results of up to 1.08 g/t gold, with anomalous silver, copper, bismuth, antimony, and tellurium values.
Drill holes 11MP-13 and -14 did not intersect significant gold values. At depth, drill hole 11MP-16 intersected a section of silicified quartz sericite schist with 3-5% pyrite and chalcopyrite containing 0.72 g/t gold over 5.8 metres. This interval appeared similar to the mineralized float boulders sampled on surface.
Drill hole 11MP-15 was located further downslope to the northeast and tested anomalous gold-in-soil results coincident with a linear magnetic low. Anomalous gold results of 0.54 g/t gold over 6.5 metres and 2.13 g/t gold over 2.5 metres were associated with sections of fractured and brecciated quartz veins, similar to those encountered at Skookum Main.
Given the strong geochemical anomalism of both rock and soil samples from this area, additional field reviews are warranted to determine the source of mineralization that has been detected in both float and drill core.
