Whitney Project

Bob's Lake Block

The project is made up of 10 contiguous unpatented single-unit and block mining claims located in the central portion of Whitney township, Porcupine mining division. In total, the property covers 553 acres or 224 hectares.

Highway 101 east from the city of Timmins runs generally east to west through the southern part of the claim group. The historic Porcupine Destor fault is shown to extend on to the property in two locations along the property's northern boundary.

Along with this historic structure, the claims are underlain by an assemblage of mafic to intermediate volcanics as well as sedimentary rocks. Another major structure that extends diagonally through the eastern section of the block is the Hallnor fault. Both the Brouland (produced 490,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.23 ounce per ton (7.88 grams per tonne) and Hallnor mine (1.7 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.4 ounce per ton (13.71 g/t)) are located along this structure approximately 800 metres to the north of the property.

Letho has completed an IP survey on the claims and are in the process of prioritizing several interesting drill targets that the survey has yielded.

Porcupine Lake Block

The project is made up of six contiguous unpatented single-unit mining claims located in the southwestern portion of Whitney township, Porcupine mining division. In total, the property covers 237 acres or 96 hectares.

The property occurs along strike with the Bobs Lake block, approximately four kilometres to the southwest and covers the contact between the ultramafics and intermediate volcanics. A fault and cross fault are shown to occur within the block, which may be splays from the Porcupine Destor fault, located approximately one kilometre to the north of the project.
