Massive Sulphide Mineralization
TILT COVE AREA - EXPANSION INTO HISTORIC TERRITORY
The Tilt Cove Mine was first discovered in 1857 by Smith McKay. Its operations have contributed significantly to the province’s mining legacy, making Tilt Cove a name synonymous with rich mineral resources. From its initial copper focus in 1864, Tilt Cove has produced over 8.2 million pounds of copper and 198,000 ounces of gold from 2.4 million short tons of ore through 1917. Repeated reactivations in the 20th century, including the production of 2.8 million tons of copper ore from 1957 to 1967, attest to the site’s enduring potential.
TILT COVE - GEOLOGICAL HIGHLIGHTS
PARTIAL ASSOCIATION WITH VOLCANICS:
The ore system is only partially associated with the Paquet Harbour Group volcanics in which it is situated. This suggests that the mineralization could be linked to deeper geological processes, broadening the horizons of our exploration.
The main focus of our exploration is the contact zone, an intriguing geological interface between the underlying sheeted dykes and the overlying pillow lavas.
DOMINANTLY MAFIC HOSTED ORE SYSTEM:
The ore system at the Tilt Cove Project is primarily hosted in mafic rocks, a broad category of dark-colored, magnesium, and iron-rich igneous rocks known for their metal-bearing potential.
