Recent Work at Weebigee and Winter Drill Program
In early November, Goldeye collected 31 channel samples along with 4 grab samples. All samples were taken along the north shoreline of the NW Arm from quartz tourmaline veins, silicified zones and quartz-sericite-pyrite altered horizons within the felsic flow/tuff complex. The samples were collected in accordance with Goldeye’s QA/QC procedures and have been sent to Activation Laboratories facility in Thunder Bay for assay.
Results from these samples will assist Goldeye in further refining drill targets for the winter 2013-14 drill program. Goldeye is currently planning and organizing the logistics for a 2500 metre drill program that will focus on targets in the NW Arm area of the Weebigee Project.
