The renowned Brunswick No.12 Mine contained at least 50 million tonnes of similar non-economic pyritic massive sulphides adjoining the 136 million tonnes of extremely rich ore grading 8.74% Zn, 3.44% Pb, 0.37% Cu, and 102 g/t Ag. For this reason, inasmuch as Taylor Brook is open along strike and down dip, considerable additional drilling in search of high-grade mineralization analogous to Brunswick No. 12 is required.
The historical Stratabound Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Bathurst properties (November 23, 2011) confirms that further exploration is warranted and recommends that additional drilling be conducted to further investigate the Taylor Brook deposit since it has not been delineated laterally to the east or west, nor at depth. The historical PEA further notes that the Taylor Brook deposit appears to have a nucleus of higher grade massive sulphides concentrated in the northwest of the deposit, and proposes that drilling be carried out along the western edge of the deposit, as there has been no drilling to determine the western extent of the massive sulphide zones.
Exploration in 2016 intersected the two mineralized horizons that were delineated in DDH 14-39. This further increased the strike length approximately 100 metres to the east.
Exploration in 2018 consisted of a new north — south grid over the previously existing grid in order to better define mineralization at depth. Max – Min and IP geophysical surveys have been initiated.
