Geology of the WILSON Property
The geology is roughly oriented NE-SW and can be divided into two distinct parts. These are the northwestern half and the southeastern half of the Property.
The bedrock geology in the northeast is dominated by the Quéver pluton. This pluton has a quartz porphyry to monzodiorite composition. The Quéver pluton ranges from 3 to 5 kilometres in diameter. South of this pluton the geology is composed of intermediate volcanics and a gabbro sill. The bedrock geology of the southeastern half of Wilson is composed primarily of intermediate volcanics and volcaniclastics. These volcanics are interspersed with gabbro sills. Also noted is a diabase dyke. This dyke is oriented NNE-SSW.
Metamorphism is primarily greenschist in grade. Along the margins of the Quéver pluton, metamorphic grade, amphibolite grade is observed. The primary alteration types are: silicification, sericitization, and chloritization. The regional strike is NE-SW. Rocks dip subvertical to the northwest.
