100% (earn-in) interest in the 2,228 ha (22.8 km2)
- The property covers a 15km long segment of the regionally significant Kashawogama Lake Shear Zone (KLSZ).
- Previous government mapping initiatives describe the KLSZ as a brittle – ductile high strain zone that separates granitoid rocks in the north from mafic volcanic and sedimentary rocks in the south.
- Coarse conglomerate rock units are noted within the core of the shear zones and the Ethos technical team has tentatively interpreted these units as “Timiskaming-like” in appearance, thereby reinforcing the KLSZ as a potentially important structure for hosting gold mineralization.
- This is the diagnostic structural setting for orogenic (vein hosted) gold deposits that occur in the Superior Province of Ontario and elsewhere.
