Hummingbird Geology and Mineralization
Hummingbird is located within the Tantato Domain, a wide lozenge of strongly deformed mylonitic gneisses forming the eastern margin of the Archean Rae Province. The Tantato Domain is part of the Striding-Athabasca mylonite zone, which is interpreted as a deep crustal intracontinental strike-slip shear zone at the junction of the Rae and Hearne provinces. Most gold occurrences in the host area are localized in a relatively small 90 square kilometer region along the north shore of Lake Athabasca, bounded by Robillard Bay to the west and Camille Bay to the east. There are two main rock types in the host area: mylonitic garnet clinopyroxene mafic gneisses and mylonitic garnet quartzfeldspathic felsic gneisses. In the western part of Hummingbird within the Pine Channel assemblage, gold occurs in arsenopyrite-bearing quartz veins filling late fractures and faults, which cut across granulite-facies Archean gneisses of the Tantato Domain (from “Gold in the Pine Channel Area”, LaFrance,1997).
National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure
The technical information in the Hummingbird Gold Project on this web page has been reviewed and approved by Sierd Eriks, P.Geo., President and Chief Geologist of ALX, who is a Qualified Person in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101.
Rock samples described on this web page were shipped to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon, SK and analyzed using a four-acid digestion with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Gold, platinum and palladium were analyzed by fire assay techniques. Samples that returned > 3000 ppb gold by fire assay were further analyzed by metallic gold assay.
Readers are advised that some of the technical information described on this web page is historical in nature; however, the historical information is deemed credible and was produced by professional geoscientists in the years discussed. Historical geochemical results quoted on this web page were transcribed directly from mineral showings described in the Saskatchewan Mineral Deposits Index, or from assessment reports and scientific papers archived by the Government of Saskatchewan. Management cautions that certain historical results collected and reported by past operators have not been verified nor confirmed by its Qualified Person, but create a scientific basis for ongoing work in the Hummingbird property area. Management further cautions that past results or discoveries on adjacent or nearby mineral properties are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on ALX’s mineral properties.
