Dios’ single-day reconnaissance uncovered two new gold showings (Badji : 5.39 grams gold per tonne, 111 g/t silver, 5% copper and Samosa : 3.39 g/t gold) plus a copper showing (Curry: 0.85% Cu, 41 g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t Au) and follow-up work was undertaken in September 2016.
New wholly-owned K2 gold property along Opinaca River, James Bay, Quebec, increases Dios’ strategic land position (68 claims for 35.9 sq. km) near Kali Lake. K2 is centered on numerous Gold-Silver-Copper occurrences hosted in felsic volcanics and tuffs spatially associated with NW Kali fault and margins of a regional distinct 4 x 1 km magnetic high anomaly along the contact of the Kali (QP) Quartz-Diorite Porphyry. Mineralization is composed of disseminated and stringer sulphides (pyrite-chalcopyrite, and minor sphalerite-pyrrhotite) associated with a strong silica-chlorite-carbonate-(ankerite) stockwork alteration zone (bell-shaped rhyodacitic /dacitic dome?). The mineralization is generally coincidental with +/- formational VLF-EM conductors. The Alteration Zone is centred on the NW Kali fault and overlaps the southern margin of the magnetic high anomaly. It was traced over a 500 m width and a 2 km lateral extent within the felsic volcanic sequence.
Dios 2016 rock sampling returned 64 gold assays between 0.1 and 8.08 g/t Au, including 12 samples greater than 1.0 g/t Au (1.03, 1.35, 1.46, 1.65, 1.71, 1.74, 2.12, 2.28, 2.44, 2.52, 3.64 & 8.08 g/t Au). Gold is associated with significant silver values grading up to 123.0 g/t Ag (including 36 samples over 10.0 g/t Ag & 8 samples over 50.0 g/t Ag ) and copper values up to 6.42% (65 samples over 0.1% Cu and 18 samples over 1.0% Cu).
Best assays were obtained in the felsic volcanic sequence (rhyodacite dome) over-lying the Kali Quartz-Diorite Porphyry. A chalcopyrite-rich stringer/stockwork zone extending over 75m and about 5-15m wide yielded up to 8.08 g/t Au, 96.7 g/t Ag, 2.43% Cu & 0.17% Zn. A total of 13 rock samples collected from the «Attila Zone» returned average grades of 1.07 g/t Au, 38.8 g/t Ag, 1.25% Cu & 0.01% Bi.Six samples of the Attila zone also assayed higher than 0.1% Zn (up to 0.976 % Zn). Approximately 100m north, a plurimetric sub-parallel horizon extending over 50m with narrow quartz-carbonate-pyrite veins returned five samples greater than 1.0 g/t Au (up to 3.64 g/t Au & 26.7 g/t Ag). Previous B-horizon soil survey outlined gold-copper-zinc anomalies up to 300 meters east of the Attila zone.
Several VLF-EM16 conductors coincidental to disseminated sulphidic minera-lisation in the rhyodacite dome are present SW of Kali Fault. These include two kilometric conductors that host two showings.
The Kali Lake Cu-Ag-Au showings consists in a mineralized zone within (and at the margin of) the well silicified (and ankeritized) quartz porphyry along the NW Kali fault.
A NEW GOLD PROJECT, OPINACA REGION
A gold project, Opinaca-Eastmain Gold Camp, 350 km north of Matagami, James Bay, QC, the wholly-owned SOLO gold project is composed of 55 claims for 29 sq. km along the Lower Eastmain Greenstone belt, part of the Archean La Grande Sub-province, James Bay, Quebec. It is located about 30 km due west of the Km 381 Relay and of the Matagami-Radisson highway, between the Opinaca and Eastmain Rivers.
The SOLO gold property is underlain by favourable complex geological features. The general geological environment suggests a potential for Bousquet type gold or intrusion-related type gold mineralization. The Opinaca-LaGrande Sub-provinces contact is located from two to four kilometres from the SOLO gold property. This gold project covers a folded (tilted syncline towards the south; north dipping) volcanic sequence composed of calc-alkaline sinter to lapillis-blocks felsic-intermediate tuffs (WABAMISK Formation), banded iron-formation (BIF)/ chert, intermediate and tholeiitic mafics. The sequence covers a 5 km strike of untested (and non-outcropping) inputs/ induced polarization anomalies, along which are surimposed gold soil (humus) anomalies. The geophysical anomalies are interpreted as the contact between felsic tuffs and intermediate volcanics and are located near a kilometric tonalite plug intruding the northern limb of the fold. These coincidental anomalies constitute good drilling targets.
