Geology & Mineralization

The Lutila Gold Project is located 140 kilometres northeast of the capital city of the Slovak Republic, Bratislava. The nearby town of Žiar nad Hronom within the Banská Bystrica Region is located immediately south of the exploration licence area. The villages of Lutila and Slaská bound the property to the west, while the villages of Kopernica and Lúčky lie to the north and the villages of Horná Ves, Dolná Ves, Bartošova Lehôtka and Stará Kremnička bound the property to the east.

The property is located near the northern margin of the Central Slovak Volcanic Field within an area dominated by north to north-northeast trending faults and post-andesite resurgent rhyolite flow domes and dykes. The faults are normal, extensional, and form a series of horsts and grabens that are extensions of the Banská Štiavnica caldera complex that lies several kilometres to the south.

The Company was attracted to the property for the following reasons:

  • The extensive sinter field which reflects the position of the paleosurface and is a surface indication of boiling at depth within an epithermal system which, if present, is preserved from erosion.
  • The historic exploration diamond drilling within the northeast portion of the property indicated that the silicified rhyolite flow domes ± chalcedonic quartz veins did in fact contain gold mineralisation, which is important when assessing the upper, lower temperature parts of low-sulfidation epithermal vein systems.
  • The proximity to the historic Kremnica gold deposit, which is located along strike, 5km to the north and within the same volcanic depression and effectively informs the Company’s exploration model was a key factor in acquiring the property.
  • Review of public domain data relating to the Kremnica gold deposit indicated that rhyolite dykes were intimately associated with and often well mineralised where they are cross-cut, or run parallel to quartz-adularia veins, thus indicating that extrusive rhyolite volcanism was likely a pre-mineral event.

Taken together, the above points indicate to the Company that the Kremnica gold deposit most likely has been subjected to approximately 200-300m of erosion, including the removal of sinters and the silicified rhyolite flow dome complex so as to expose the quartz-adularia vein system within andesite volcanic rocks at surface and coincident with the precious metal zone, which most likely accounts for the exploitation of the deposit over such a long period of time.

Taken further, the Company believes that the Lutila Gold Project reflects a continuation of the same volcanic depression which has been downfaulted, creating a preserved graben of rhyolite flow domes, lavas and their pyroclastic products together with a very large sinter field.

The Company’s conceptual exploration model is outlined below:
