Mar 11, 2017 @ 06:34

MacDonald Mines has created a Technical Advisory Committee; Jean-Philippe Desrochers, James Franklin, Ph.D., FRSC, P.Geo., Mackenzie Watson, B.Sc., P.Geol., P.Eng. and Hadyn Butler, B.Sc., P.Geo., P.Eng. and contracted Expedition Group of Companies Inc. to conduct the trenching of the Oxide Sands, one of the main gold targets on the property.

From their press release, “The Oxide Sands are interpreted to be derived from the weathering of an auriferous and pyritized Algoma-type iron formation. The pyritized iron formation has been traced over a 2km strike length. In 2002, the Oxide Sands were sampled over 332.5 metres along strike. They were reported to reach a depth of at least 8 metres and contained an average gold grade of 3.45 g/t and an average silver grade of 29.99 g/t.

The objective of MacDonald’s trenching program is to confirm the Oxide Sands’ strike length and thickness and to undertake a systematic sampling of the mineralized horizon over the total strike length.”



The Wawa-Holdsworth Project is approximately 285 hectares, located 20 kilometres northeast of the town of Wawa.
