ONTARIO – Vancouver’s Coventry Resources has received the initial resource estimate for its Dogpaw gold deposit, 10 km west of its flagship Cameron gold project 80 km southeast of Kenora. Using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off, the indicated resource is 259,000 tonnes grading 2.99 g/t Au and the inferred resource is 148,000 tonnes grading 2.71 g/t Au. The categories contain 24,900 oz and 13,800 oz of gold, respectively.
Coventry has a preliminary economic assessment for the Cameron (total 1.4 million contained oz) and Dubenski (total 77,200 contained oz) deposits. Resources from the Dogpaw deposit would provide additional feed for the proposed mill.
The Dogpaw mineralized zone extends over a strike length of 310 metres to a vertical depth of 210 metres. Gold occurs in disseminated pyrite and silica with associated carbonate, mainly in gabbro, at a contact with mafic volcanic rocks where porphyry intrusions are apparently localized by a series of northwest trending faults, according to the company. The mineralization remains open to the east-northeast and at depth.
The Dogpaw gold occurrence was first discovered in the early 1990s. See CoventryRes.com for more information.
