Painted Dory Project (VMS)
5,400 hectare project underlain by the Ordovician Pacquet Harbour Group, which is also host to the nearby Ming VMS deposit (24.5Mt @ 1.7% Cu with 0.34 g/t Au @ 1% Cu cut-off) currently being mined by Rambler Metals & Mining.
Numerous historical showings with assays (1989) up to 26% copper and 97 g/t silver (e.g., the Lucky Strike Prospect). Fieldwork this summer by Puddle Pond’s geologists was successful in locating most of these prospects, with new assays reinforcing the Cu- and Ag-rich nature of the VMS mineralization (e.g., 19.7% Cu & 70 g/t Ag).
Good access from Highway 413 (Burlington Hwy.) through a system of forestry roads.
The project also has good potential for gold mineralization (grabs up to 2.59 g/t Au) in both VMS and orogenic-style settings.
