The 13527ha Eldridge Lake Property located is 65 km south of the producing Seabee/Seabee Mine complex and 95 km east of LaRonge, Saskatchewan. Eldridge Lake is accessible for summer work crews by fixed/rotary wing aircraft and in the winter by overland routes from Deschambault Lake located 25km SE which, in turn, is accessed by Hwy 911, an all-weather road.
The Eldridge property has been identified as highly prospective based on similar host geology of the nearby Olson project and structurally disrupted greenstone-granite host rocks in proximity to major crustal-scale faults.
The claims are 100% owned by Eagle Plains with no underlying royalties or encumbrances.
- Property located in the Trans Hudson Orogen with host rocks similar to Seabee/Santoy Mine complex and other orogenic gold and VMS projects in the region
- Significantly underexplored with encouraging early results
- Preliminary geochemical and geophysical surveys have identified highly anomalous gold trends
- Proximal to deep-seated regional structure with prospective alteration
- Excellent geology favourable for high-grade Au deposits
The geology in central-east Saskatchewan consists of northeast-trending belts of supracrustal and plutonic rocks that were accreted onto Archean cratons during the Early Proterozoic TransHudson orogeny. The geology on and surrounding the Eldridge Project consists of arcuate belts of supracrustal and plutonic rocks at the southern end of the Glennie Domain. The Glennie Domain consists of amphibolite-grade intercalated metavolcanic rocks and metasedimentary rocks with mafic to felsic plutonic rocks, and is interpreted as a Paleoproterozoic island arc. The Glennie Domain is bound to the east by the Tabbernor fault system, a regionally-extensive structure with mylonite overprinted by brittle faulting.
The geology of the property comprises dominantly northwest trending supracrustal rocks of the Palf Lake Belt, intruded to the northeast by several phases of the Lueder Lake Batholith (diorite, granodiorite, granite), and bounded to the southwest by foliated granodioritic to granitic rocks of the Carroll Lake Granite Gneiss. Southeast of Kvamsing Lake, the Palf Lake belt merges with the east-trending Brownell Lake belt. East of Brownell Lake, a unit of protomylonite to mylonite interpreted to have a mafic volcanic protolith is mapped as the Kvamsing Cataclastic Belt and is part of the Lake shear zone. The Lake shear zone separates the Carroll Lake Granite from the Brownell Lake Greenstone Belt to the south.
Considering the Eldridge Project’s close proximity to SSR Mining’s Fisher Property and Eagle Plains’ Olson Project that contain the same prospective host rocks, the Eldridge Lake area is conspicuously underexplored with only regional scale industry airborne surveys and government geological mapping on record.
Eagle Plains Exploration
Following property acquisition by staking in 2020, Eagle Plains conducted a preliminary data compilation followed by completion of a baseline airborne magnetic & VLF-EM geophysical survey, and a grassroots field program comprising heli-float assisted lake-bottom sediment sampling, and till sampling for gold grain assessment.
Based on the geochemical and geophysical results in relation to the prospective regional geology, 5 target polygons have been defined for follow up detailed assessment
The 5 target polygons were derived from compilation of regional geology plus results of the 2021 airborne geophysical and lake-silt and till geochemical surveys. These targets outline significant potential for the discovery of new gold, silver and copper showings. The ideal recommended follow-up program consists of property wide prospecting for veins, shears and mineralized horizons, with focus on the above target areas, including infill/expanded till sampling. This would be followed with more focused grid-scale geological mapping and soil geochemical surveys.
Eagle Plains - A Project Generator
Eagle Plains Resources is a project generator with mineral exploration properties of merit that meet qualifying transaction requirements. The Burbidge Lake Property, while not a project of merit, is available for option to joint-venture partners. We facilitate the listing process for capital pool companies and initial public offerings while providing technical expertise for exploration programs. Companies interested in co-operatively exploring any of these projects please contact: Tim Termuende at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mike Labach at email@example.com or call 1 866 Hunt Ore (486 8673).
