The NT Zone, which is located on the Rowan Mine Property joint venture portion of the West Red Lake Project, trends north-east from the south property boundary for a distance of 2 kms to where this regional scale structure intersects with the east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone. The area of the NT Zone being explored is located approximately 800 metres south of the former producing Rowan Mine.
West Red Lake Project – NT Zone Drilling
Drilling indicates the presence of four parallel gold zones situated within the 100 metre wide NT Zone structure. The four gold zones are separated by 20 to 30 metres and trend along strike within the north-east trending NT Zone. The two central most zones appear to be the most prospective and are situated approximately 20 meters apart in the central area of the NT Zone structure.

Cross-sections within Target Area
The NT Zone is a large-scale alteration/deformation zone. The scale and style of the iron-carbonate alteration within the NT Zone is interpreted to be associated with large multi-stage hydrothermal systems. Gold mineralization in the NT Zone is associated with silica/sulphide replacement of the iron-carbonate zones within altered volcanic and sedimentary rocks.
