Lalor Lake

Canada

At 800 metres deep, Lalor is the deepest target ever discovered with surface TDEM system.

 

Lalor Lake is a 16 Mt zinc rich VMS deposit. It represents one of the largest base metal deposit discovered in Canada in decades.

 

In order to test whether the Chisel Mine workings at 600 meters depth can be detected by a ground survey, a 2 square kilometre   transmitter loop was laid on the surface. The test successfully detected the known zones.

The same approach was applied on a 20 square kilometre piece of the volcanic Basin and defined two bull’s eyes targets. Models indicate a source at 800 metres depth. At 795 metres a drill hole intersected over 24 meters of high grade zinc ore(17.26% Zn over 16.45 m)
