Amseco Exploration has reported the rock sampling assay results from the James Bay properties. The company has encountered below 30.72 g/t gold, < 6.14% copper, < 260 g/t silver, < 8.86% lead and < 3.12% zinc at the Yasinski property, which is situated 70 km to the south of the town of Radisson and < 11.7 g/t gold at Chika.
The Yasinski property has archean-aged uncovered rocks and includes conglomerate of basalt, polygenic and quartzite. Amseco has gathered 81 rock samples totally in a mineralized zone region measuring 2000 x 300 m. The mineralization exists in the quartz vein, sulphide veinlets and diffusions in altered zones. It comprises argentiferous galena, chalcopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite and sphalerite.
The location of the CHIKA property is close to the LG-3 hydroelectric plant and has archean-aged rocks. A shear zone housing tourmaline and milky quartz veins that intersects a gabbro unit are present in the mineralized zone, which initially contains pyrite and pyrrhotite. The area of the sampling program is 60 x 5 m. Amseco has gathered 42 rock samples totally from the mineralized zone. In addition, it has purchased further claim areas that cover strange geophysical anomalies discovered during the early work.
A group of workers under the supervision of Roger Moar conducts the sampling program. Amseco has employed the fire assay method for gold analysis and the atomic absorption for finding the gold concentration. It has used the technique of digestion with hydrochloric acid and nitric acid for other metal analysis and atomic absorption for finding the element concentration.
