Description of Package
The Big Duck Creek claim comprises a single contiguous Multi Cell Mining Claim covering an area of approximately 3.82km2, located immediately north and adjacent to Panther’s Little Bear North Big Bear claims. The BDC constitutes a north-westerly extension to the Big Bear Project, centred 7.8km north-northeast of the town of Schreiber, in the Priske Township, Thunder Bay Mining Division of Ontario, Canada.
The BDC area has potential for high grade gold mineralisation at the intersection of shears and faults, within prospective Archean age geology. The exploration model is for metavolcanic hosted – dilation zone type quartz-carbonate gold mineralisation. The presence of known gold bearing ironstone formations within the area also supports an additional chemical sediment stratabound type gold and base metal exploration model. Known gold in the area is associated with silver, copper, zinc, lead and molybdenum.
The BDC Multi Cell Mining Claim number 546085 was directly staked by Panther non-Executive director and registered prospector Nicholas O’Reilly at a cost of Canadian $900.
The BDC has been transferred to Panther on a cost only basis, equivalent to £552 Sterling, there is no royalty, net smelter return or share deal attached to the transfer.
No work has yet been applied on the claims, and there are no work credits to carry over. The Work Requirement for the claim totals Canadian $7,200 due by 22nd March 2021. In order to extend the validity of a mining claim, past its ‘Anniversary Date’ (the renewal deadline), it is necessary to undertake an annual amount of work to the value of the Work Requirement, or where allowed make a payment in lieu of work to the Work Requirement.
