Geologic setting

Geologic description

The Cohio prospect was found by Hidefield Gold PLC in 2006 (Alix Resources Corp., 2011). Three consecutive grab samples collected along 1 kilometer of the ridge contained 9.7, 15.0, and 111 parts per million gold. The rocks along the ridge in the prospect area are part of a northeast-trending band of Devonian andesitic tuffs and flows that interfinger with several long lenses of serpentine and silica-carbonate rock of unknown age (Kerr and Loveday, 2011).

Mineral deposit model Insufficient evidence to assign.
Age of mineralization Little basis to assign; however Alix (2011) suggests that this mineralization here may be the extension of the belt of deposits that extend northeast to the Golden Zone Mine (HE043) where the mineralization is 65-70 Ma.
Alteration of deposit Not noted.
