Genius Properties Ltd. is pleased to report the staking of 243 new mining claims in Nova Scotia covering an area of 39.3 square kilometres adjacent to Atlantic Gold's most developed resource: the Touquoy gold deposit.
Genius new staked property contains several gold showings, old exploration works such as the Meaghers Au-As Prospect, several DDH collared for Au-Pb-Zn exploration and two abandoned gold adits. These gold-bearing structures are all in trend with the magnetic anomaly associated with Atlantic Gold four deposits (Figure 1). This suggests the extension of the gold mineralized zones is probably hidden under a thick overburden and/or forms deeply buried new mineralization.
The four Atlantic Gold deposits are associated with an overturned anticline composed of sedimentary rocks characterized by a discrete magnetic anomaly.
