The Myschka Area is located 20km north of the Andrew Zinc Deposit and lies within a geological belt known as the Tintina Gold Belt.
The Myschka is situated within an extensional fault setting, demonstrated by at least four east-west trending breccia and alteration zones surrounding a Tombstone Suite granodioritic intrusion. Fracture controlled and replacement-style gold and silver-bearing sulphide mineralisation occurs throughout these breccia zones (predominantly as pyrite, arsenopyrite, galena and stibnite). The zones can be followed for a distance of 1500m, with widths varying from 20 to 100m.
Klad Enterprises conducted soil and rock sampling at Myschka in 1990, with selected samples returning values up to 3017g/t Ag, 75%Pb and 0.2%Zn. In 1996 an independent prospector took composite grab samples of oxidised surface material which assayed at 17%Zn. Subsequently the claims were optioned to Noranda Inc. who carried out a detailed soil sampling program that delineated two anomalous gold zones coinciding with the above mentioned breccias.
Structural and geochemical interpretation suggests that the auriferous sedimentary-hosted breccia zones dip towards the intrusive stock. Fault zones of several orientations appear to have controlled fluid movement and created a multi-staged history of mineralisation.
The Myschka represents a large and highly prospective target with potential to host significant bulk-tonnage gold mineralisation, comparable to the Fort Knox Deposit in Alaska.
