Local Geology

Eagle’s Vision: 4.5 SQUARE KMS VIRGIN PROPERTY: located in Central Newfoundland – Dunnage Zone, Charles Lake Volcanics. (SCi) The rock types have been identified by the provincial geological department, Newfoundland and Labrador to be Volcanic/Epiclastic rocks: rock types where multiple “orebodies,” of Volcanic Massive Sulphides (VMS) deposits past and present are identified in Newfoundland.

SHgk granite on the property in the north west corner, across Beaver Pond.

The 2017 exploration work conducted on the Eagle’s Vision Property indicates the potential for a massive orebody. Results from the 2017 exploration sampling program confirms: Gold (Au); Silver (Ag); Copper (Cu); Lead (Pb); and Zinc (Zn), and other anomalies: with gold results up to 21 g/t.

During the summer of 2017 additional licence was added next to the Eagle’s Vision two licences. This Licence is held by our partner who first discovered the gold samples. The addition of this licence brings the total area to 10.5 Square KMS of virgin properties to be explored.

While prospecting in the summer of 2017 SHgk granite was found north west of Beaver Pond and the fault line associated with the pond. During the 2018 prospecting year additional granite samples were found north of our claim in William Pynn’s claim.

When I first looked across the beaver pond I thought the area was recently logged. But after careful examination it was obvious that the area was granite, SHgk granite.

SHgk Massive, medium-grained, equigranular to K-feldspar-porphyritic, buff to pink, 2-feldspar biotite +/- hornblende granodiorite and granite; minor tonalite associated with SHgp

Note: SHgk granite is found on the property in the north west corner, across Beaver Pond and the asscociated fault line. The exact boundry of SHgk and SCi is unknown, the map shows a general area.

SHgp Massive, fine- to medium-grained, rarely coarse-grained, grey to locally black, pyroxene +/- hornblende +/- biotite gabbro and minor quartz diorite and tonalite commonly veined by thin granodiorite vein; locally displays layering; minor areas of pyroxene-rich, medium- to coarse-grained gabbro

– [NOTE: boundaries between units SCi and SCb are undefined]

SCi Massive, very fine-grained, quartz – feldspar porphyritic, commonly flow-layered, pink to purple ignimbrite, very fine-grained, quartz-porphyritic, yellow rhyolite, massive fine grained pink felsic tuff; locally associated with volcanic clast-rich cobble gonglomerate; interbedded with SCb basalts; ignimbrite dated by U/Pb(zr)at 429 +/- 2 Ma.

SCb Massive to locally highly sheared, very fine- to medium grained, equaigranular to rarely plagioclase- porphyritic, commonly epidotized, grey to black, very thick basalt flows; rare interbeded grey sandstone; rare massive pillow lava; interbeded with SCi felsic volcanic rocks.

That part of central Newfoundland that is characterized by thick sequences of Cambrian to Ordovician mafic and felsic volcanic rocks, associated slates and coarser- grained, marine clastic sedimentary rocks. The Dunnage Zone contains rocks that formed in the ancient proto-Atlantic (Iapetus) Ocean.

A VMS mineral deposit develops and forms at or near the sea-floor, by the deposition of metals from hot, metal-rich fluids formed by heating salt water that percolates downward, deep into the volcanic rocks under the sea-floor. Hot intrusions below these volcanic rocks heat the waters, which then circulate back up to the sea- floor.

The Eagles Vision Property is in an area of MAJOR to MINOR FAULTING with significant indicators of sub-faulting with multiple stringer zones suspected. Central Newfoundland (Dunnage Zone) is viewed by many as the most highly prospective part of the province for VMS deposits.

Equivalent to Iapetus Ocean: the ancient ocean that existed between about 400 and 500 million years ago, separating the continents that later collided (as a result of plate tectonic motions) to form the Appalachian orogen. Relics of the old ocean floor of the proto-Atlantic are preserved within ophiolites of the Dunnage Zone. Many of the VMS deposits of central Newfoundland formed within island arcs in the same proto-Atlantic Ocean.

Newfoundland’s 49 Significant Ore-bodies

General Overview of Past and Present Significant Ore-bodies

ALL of Newfoundland’s significant ore-bodies that’s been Mining Operations – past and present are located within Volcanic/epiclastic rock(s). In total 49 selected VMS base metals deposited are being identified as on or within the Volcanic/epiclastic rock(s) with the exception of a couple cited locations.

Volcanic hosted or volcanogenic base – and precious metal mineralization is typically hosted by, or associated with, submarine volcanic and/or volcaniclastic rocks that are enriched with a major source of copper, zinc, lead, silver or gold; by-products include: Cadmium (Cd); Tin (Sn); and Antimony (Sb)

Note: All of the selected 49 VMS deposits showing on map above are located on “LOWER PALEOZOIC” VOLCANIC/EPICLASTIC ROCKS
