Geologic setting

Geologic description

Venus is a copper prospect, in the Stellar Project area, characterized by a copper soil anomaly hosted in hornfels and basalt (P. St. George, Chief Exploration Officer, Millrock Resources Inc., oral communication, 2014). The Stellar Project area straddles the Yukon-Tanana and Wrangellia terranes (Millrock Resources Inc., 2014).
From 2011 to 2013, Millrock Resources Inc. conducted soil and rock sampling. In 2013, airborne electromagnetic geophysical survey and spectrometry were flown (P. St. George, Chief Exploration Officer, Millrock Resources Inc., oral communication, 2014).

Mineral deposit model Unknown.
Age of mineralization Triassic or younger based on age of host rock (Nokleberg and others, 1991)?
Alteration of deposit Chlorite and garnet (P. St. George, Chief Exploration Officer, Millrock Resources Inc., oral communication, 2014).
