UTEM5 survey results (April 2014) over the Lalor Deposit of HudBay Minerals Inc. presented @ the BCGS 2014 Fall Symposium: October 16/17, 2014 Exploration for Deep VMS Ore Bodies: The Hudbay Lalor Case Study
The deposit is clearly detectable with UTEM5.
The Hudbay Lalor deposit is located in the Chisel Basin portion of the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt and is believed to be the largest VMS deposit found in this region to date. The discovery of Lalor by the HudBay team won the 2008 Bill Dennis Award for a Canadian discovery by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC).
Sulphide mineralization occurs in six separate stacked lenses (#10,11,20,30,31,40) of zinc-rich polymetallic near-solid to solid sulphide mineralization 570-1,170m below surface. Footwall gold mineralization is typical of any VMS footwall feeder zone and six lens groups of gold mineralization (#21,24,25,26,27,28) have been interpreted within the deposit between 750m to 1,480m below surface... development and exploration continue.
