The Red Lake District is made up of six communities: Red Lake, Balmertown, Cochenour, McKenzie Island, Madsen and Starratt Olsen. All were founded for the discovery and mining of gold. Past production and current reserves in the Red Lake district totals approximately 24 million ounces of gold and continues to rise. Goldcorp’s Red Lake Complex and Campbell Complex, together with the former Cochenour Mine, account for almost 80% of the total gold production. All three of these mines are hosted by a long mineralized trend called the Cochenour-Dickenson Deformation Zone.
The Cochenour-Dickenson Deformation Zone
Rupert’s Gold Centre property is in the heart of the Cochenour-Dickenson Deformation Zone – the most productive trend in the Red Lake Gold Camp. Gold Centre is in very close proximity to the #3 Shaft of Goldcorp’s Red Lake Complex high-grade mine. Little recent exploration has been carried out on the Gold Centre property. The focus of the Summer 2013 exploration program was to utilize a combination soil geochemistry, mapping, I.P. and ground magnetics to uncover potential for drill targets. The results of this program have presented two very strong to strong geophysical anomalies which, along with the newly gained surface mapping and interpreted subsurface lithology, have been recommended for further investigation by diamond core drilling.
