This report releases whole-rock geochemical and assay results of 210 samples from the gold-bearing mineralized zones of the Horne 5 deposit. These samples were collected during the
2016 and 2017 field seasons as part of a Masters study by the senior author (Krushnisky, 2018) at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Centre Eau, Terre, Environment (INRS-ETE) in Quebec City. Research on gold-bearing mineralized zones
of the Horne 5 deposit was conducted under the Gold project under the System Controls on Gold Through Space and Time (source to trap) theme. The geochemical data is presented in a format easily importable in a geographic information system (GIS).
Samples were collected from drillcore to document host units, the alteration zones and the ore. Interpretations are presented in Krushnisky (2018) and Krushnisky et al. (2017, 2018). Sample information and geochemical results are presented in
Appendices 1 and 2 (worksheet 'Results') respectively. The results worksheet combines 3 reports done in 2016 and 2017.
|Summary||(Plain Language Summary, not published)|
The targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-5) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides the industry with the next generation of
geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of mineral exploration. As part of TGI-5, the gold-bearing mineralized zones of the Horne 5 deposit, located in Quebec was
studied through a MSc thesis by the senior author in collaboration with the GSC, Falco Resources Ltd., the INRS-ETE, and the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources. Through this study (between 2016 and 2018), 210 samples were collected and analyzed
at ActLabs, to characterize the geological setting, ore geochemistry and alteration footprint of the gold-bearing mineralized zones of the Horne 5 deposit hydrothermal system. This open file contains the geochemical results and related information
associated to these samples.
