The Clubine property contains two mineralized zones, a lower shear-related quartz-gold-silver-sulphide vein and an upper lead-zinc-silver zone characterized by a broad geochemical anomaly and thin, mainly quartz-galena veins. The high grade gold-silver vein has had some past production, recovering 3900 ounces of gold, 7700 ounces of silver and 818 kg of copper from 3666 tonnes of ore. It is an east dipping vein structure, typically up to one meter wide, which has been drilled through a vertical relief of approximately 200 m and a strike length of 130 m. The structure is open to depth and along strike. Vein minerals include quartz, siderite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and galena with minor pyrrhotite, sphalerite and tetrahedrite.
Work Completed During Period
There is no material work that has been completed on the property during this period.
Historical Work Completed
Clubine is a past producing gold-silver-base metal vein deposit. It was operated intermittently between 1926 and 1942 by several operators, including Clubine-Comstock Gold Mines Ltd., producing 3,900 oz of gold, 7,700 oz of silver and 818 kg of zinc from 3,666 tonnes of ore.
The following is a list of the significant work completed on the project:
- 1970: Quintana Minerals Corp. carried out a soil geochemical survey which delineated a large zinc anomaly partially coincident with the present Clubine claim group.
- 1989-1991: Yellowjack Resources Ltd.drilled 12 diamond holes for a total of 645.7 m, and conducted geological mapping, soil geochemistry and a VLF-EM and magnetic ground survey.
- 1991: The provincial government, during a regional study of the Rossland Group, mapped the property and sampled exposed mineralization.
- 2007-2008: Klondike Gold Corp. cleared the access road, sampled some historic trenches, conducted a ground geophysical survey on the upper Maggie zone, and and re-interpreted the soil geochemical program done by Yellowjack Resources Ltd.
- 2009-2010: Klondike gold drilled 14 diamond drill holes with highlights of CB09-1 with 0.20 m of 148.4 g /t Au (54.49 m depth); CB09-1 with 0.27 m of 15.45 g /t Au (54.69 m depth); and CB09-1 with 0.36 m of 79.25 g /t Au (56.39 m depth).
