The drilling at Tamarack South has shown that the magmatic layering of the FGO intrusive (original sulphide bearing peridotite) is consistent with the magmatic layering at the Tamarack North Project.
Massive sulphide intersections proximal to the FGO footwall contact, similar to Tamarack North, have been encountered in three drill holes spaced 300m and 200m apart within the Neck Zone, despite the fact that only limited drilling has occurred over a 7,400 acre (30 km2) area
The Neck Zone which has demonstrated widespread, anomalous, low grade Ni-Cu-Co sulphide mineralization at depth also provided three Massive Sulphide Intersections within the lower FGO layers: click here to view the press release. Evidently a result of the winnowing out of droplets of dense sulphide liquid from an overlying flow of sulphide-bearing silicate magma, the conceptual analogous model would be typical Norilsk style deposit (i.e., Talnakh). These drill results have also established that the FGO plunges to the south and potentially underlies the Bowl as a possible feeder. This presents the potential for future exploration targeting based on the current conceptual model as proposed by Professor Naldrett (and analogous to his work on Voisey’s Bay (Eastern Deeps) as shown below.
