Davis Keays-Neil Property

In the 1990's Harrington examined a breccia zone at the 8100 foot level of the Northern extension of the Neil vein. A brecciated mineralized structure, having been cut by a Northwest striking fault zone, assayed 6.1 % copper over a true width of 20.8 metres (69 feet).


The Neil vein has been traced over a strike length of 1185 metres and a vertical extent of at least 579 metres. The vein has only been examined part way down the mountain and appears to continue another 1000 metres to the valley floor. The vein follows a northeast trending shear which is approximately 1100 metres long, 30 metres wide and 1500 metres vertical.


The Neil breccia appears to have a width ranging from 19 metres at the junction of the Neil Vein to over 60 metres at the northeast side of the mountain where it is visible for more than 1,000 metres vertically. A deep trench, two thirds up the mountain, cross-cutting the breccia assayed 10.2% copper over 3.0 metres  while at the top of the mountain, a continuous chip sample across the breccia assayed 6.1%copper over 20.8 metres. Systematic exploration of the vein and breccia would significantly increase the size of the historical resource.

Davis Keays-Neil Highlights

  • Of most significance is an approximately 10 km long EM anomaly near the northern border of the property (Ribbon claims).
  • The geophysical conductor and resistivity response suggests a large weakly conductive sheet dipping gently to the south. The large, shallow dipping conductive horizon may represent a sheet of mineralized breccia and may be the feeder for all of the vein mineralization observed in the Keays, Neil, Churchill and Toro veins. The conductive unit crops out in the Yedhe Creek valley at about 1,700 metres elevation.
  • The breccia mineralization observed at the Matnik and Neil showings consisted of hematite, magnetite and chalcocite where one sample from the showings produced assay results of over 40 percent copper. The style, mineralogy and grade of this mineralization suggests the potential for a very large, high grade IOCG deposit similar to that presently being mined at Olympic Dam in Australia.
  • The magnetic surveys also map out large areas of high magnetic response which appear to be mapping deep seated, large magnetic bodies. These bodies are probably gabbroic intrusive bodies, similar in composition to and are the sources for the diabase dyke swarms which are seen on surface and are mapped by the low and high level magnetic surveys.  The gabbroic bodies are the probable sources of both the vein mineralization as well as possible IOCG sheeted mineralization detected by the EM surveys.
