McFaulds Cu-Zn-Ag VMS Deposits
The McFaulds volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) camp was originally discovered in 2002. Subsequent drilling identified two copper-zinc VMS deposits (McFaulds 1 and McFaulds 3), as well as several other VMS occurrences in close proximity. Noront acquired the McFaulds VMS property in mid-2015 from Cliffs Natural Resources.
The two McFaulds deposits are the centerpiece of an 80 claim property held 85% by Noront and 15% by KWG Resources. Characterized as a volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) type occurrence, Noront is interested in further exploration of the claim group as VMS deposits often occur in numerous and sizeable clusters.
Noront is currently reviewing the technical documentation and drill core for this recently acquired site.
