- "M zone" with an historic mineral resource of 317,700 tonnes grading 3.4 g/t gold
- Deepest drill intercept from the "M zone" at 270 meters grading 4.42g/t gold over 5.84 meters
- Series of parallel shear zones have returned drill cuts of 1.7 g/t gold over 1.04 meter, 138 g/t gold over 0.46 meter, and 17.5 g/t over 0.91 meter
- Located 22 kilometers east of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, in the Abitibi region of Quebec
- Comprised of 65 claims for 31.3 square-kilometers
The Mosseau project is comprised of 65 claims for 31.3 square-kilometers located 22 kilometers east of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, in the Abitibi region of Quebec. It is considered to be highly prospective due to the presence of an historic mineral resource of 317,700 tonnes grading 3.4 g/t gold known as the Morono ‘’M zone’’, as well as several gold showings and drill intercepts associated shear zones that can be traced over a strike length of more than 10 kilometers on the project (the Morono ‘’M zone’’ resource is historical and should not be relied upon as it was not prepared under NI 43-101).
Gold mineralization on the project is associated to shear zones mostly oriented parallel to the northwest – southeast trending stratigraphy at the near contact between the intrusive rocks of the Wilson pluton and the volcanics to the south. The mineralization at Morono ‘’M zone’’ appears in quartz-sericite schists with disseminated pyrite along a continuous 950-meter long shear zone of 5 to 15 meters in thickness. All historical drill holes at Morono ‘’M zone’’ have cross-cut the shear and the zone remains open at depth with the deepest drill intercept at 270 meters grading 4.42g/t gold over 5.84 meters (true width, hole M4-88).
A series of parallel shear zones located several hundred meters away from the ‘’M zone’’ referred as the ‘’R, P and S zones’’ have returned drill cuts respectively up to 1.7 g/t gold over 1.04 meter, 138 g/t gold over 0.46 meter, and 17.5 g/t over 0.91 meter. Two kilometers to the south, the Kiask River fault zone is oriented parallel to those from the Morono area and hosts gold showing up to 12.1g/t gold. Limited work to date allowed to expose this Kiask zone over a width of at least 12 meters.
The Mosseau project was acquired by Vior in March 2017 by the map designation of 39 claims, the purchasing of 11 claims and the signing of two option agreement to acquire 100% interest in 15 claims, 9 of which from Les Ressources Tectonic and the other 6 claims from a prospector syndicate.
Vior is currently planning the exploration program on the Mousseau property that is slated to begin in spring 2017. The program should include some geophysics, field reconnaissance and some drilling.
