NUNAVUT – Silver Range Resources of Vancouver has been tracing mineralization that is strikingly similar to that found in the Pilbara region of Australia and the Witwatersrand in South Africa, but these targets are on its Tree River property in western Nunavut.

(Image: Silver Range Resources)[/caption] At Tree River, gold is hosted in quartz pebble conglomerate (QPC) overlying  mafic volcanics at the base of an Archean greenstone succession, says Silver Range. The QPC has a mapped strike length of 4.8 km and is between 15 and 20 metres thick. The conglomerate is grain supported with pyrite and carbonaceous matter in the matrix. Arsenopyrite, stibnite and sphalerite occur with the pyrite. Assays of historic grab samples were as high as 142 g/t gold, and channel samples over 0.35 metre returned 63.15 g/t. The Tree River property has never been drilled. A geological crew is onsite now to verify the extent and tenor of known mineralization and to locate new occurrences along strike.
