- Located immediately west of the Tully/Timmins North Gold Deposit in Ontario
- Property hosts the western extension of the Tully Gold Deposit
- Pro-mining jurisdiction
Tully west is situated approximately 33 km northeast of Timmins, Ontario. Step out drilling in 2013 by SGX Resources Inc. encountered high grade gold mineralization in drill hole #13-38 which intersected 36.7 g/tonne (uncut) over 6.3 m 200 metres vertically below surface. This intercept occurred approximately 300 metres west of the previously established limits of the Tully Gold Deposit. Coarse visible gold was observed in the drill hole within a broad zone of mineralized quartz and carbonate veining within the host altered volcanic tuff, identical to the main Tully Deposit to the east.
The host volcanic tuff unit is readily detectible by geophysics and has been traced for over 2 km in both eastern and western directions away from the main deposit. The Tully Deposit is interpreted to be a series of auriferous shallow dipping (extensional or ladder) stacked vein sets within a sub vertical competent mafic tuff host that is bounded by ultramafic volcanic rocks to the south and sediments to the north. This host sequence of rocks all lie within a regional east-west fault corridor, a northern splay from the Porcupine-Destor Fault. The Tully deposit has been drilled over a 1,000 m strike length to date, and to depths of over 600 m, remaining open along strike and to depth.
