Mineralization on the Paxson property is largely controlled by structure and host rock lithology, and is spatially associated with the most intense zones of silicification and quartz vein stockwork. Mineralization varies from being confined to structures to being within structures and several metres on either side (Shalosky showing) to tens of metres and possible over 100 metes from structures (Low showing). Overall sulphide content varies from less than 1% to more than 10%. There is a strong correlation between gold, arsenic and antimony. Individual sample results show a strong gold-arsenic association, but a weaker gold-antimony correlation. Copper, lead, zinc, bismuth, mercury and tellurium values are all typically low and silver values are generally only weakly to moderately anomalous. The mineralization is dominantly sediment hosted.
