Pursuant to the terms of the Amendment Agreement, five additional claims encompassing approximately 6,362.9 hectares have been added to the Property (for a total of 15 mineral claims) of which Edge owns 100% unencumbered title rights. In addition, SKRR must incur total exploration expenditures of $1,050,000 over a three-year period instead of $600,000. The image below shows the Irving project land tenure makeup, with the claims added pursuant to the Amendment Agreement highlighted striped red and the original claims pursuant to the Option Agreement shown in solid red.
Recent staking by Edge encompasses the west margin of the Eyophaise pluton, a late felsic intrusive body of mostly tonalitic composition, in contact with hornblendic and biotitic felsic gneisses of mixed sedimentary and igneous origin. This is the same body of rock in contact with the layered ultramafic intrusives that host the Seabee deposit 7 km to the north. Mineralization hosted on nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization that may be hosted on SKRR’s properties. An extensive rock, soil and till sampling program by Placer Dome in 1989 outlined several areas within the newly staked ground that are geochemically anomalous for gold and base metals. Highlights included outcrop samples that returned up to 3.93 g/t gold and 413 ppm copper from a 5 metre wide shear zone in the north of the property, and 3,300 ppm copper with 200 ppb gold from granodioritic gneiss in the south of the property. Other staking picked up remaining exposures of favourable metavolcanics on the north side of the Pine Lake greenstone belt.
