Résumé

The Bourier property is at an early stage of exploration and some portions are more at a grass-roots stage of exploration. The property has a potential for SEDEX zinc-copper deposits. The area is characterized by metasedimentary rocks, granites and pegmatites. Mineralization is typically semi-massive to massive sulphides composed of pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite. Sphalerite, along with thin layers of hydrozincite, is also present within the sulphide assemblage. Magnetite and banded iron formations occur within the area. The Lapointe site yielded the best channel and grab sample results. Grab samples in this area returned up to 0.3% Zn and up to 1.1% Ag, highlighting a Zn enriched but Cu-poor area. The Opera and Cesar sites in the northeast part of the property also showed some of the best results, but mainly for copper. For the soil sampling program, the southwestern end of the property shows higher concentrations in Cu, and Pb. The Lapointe area shows high concentrations in Zn, Ag, and Pb. The area is notably enriched in Zn and depleted in Cu. Other notable sites are Pepino RH T1 and Geai Bleu for their high Au, Ag Cu and Zn concentrations. The Opera and Caesar sites show Au, Ag and Cu anomalies, but low Zn concentrations. The Au anomalies may indicate the presence of a disseminated replacement gold deposit. This area may resemble the Duval showing or may be an extension of the Duval shear zone. The drill program targeted an EM and Mag anomaly and confirmed the presence of a SEDEX-type zinc and silver zone. Holes BOU-11-03 and BOU-11-09 yielded the anomalous results. Mineralization was intercepted at a vertical depth of 100 m and the data indicates it is open to the east and west.
