The Diego Property straddles the regional Opawica-Guercheville shear zone within Quebec's Abitibi Greenstone Belt. This shear zone is well known to host economic gold deposits. The past producing Joe Mann mine (4,289,221 t @ 7.56 g/t Au and 0.23% Cu) is situated 40 km's to the east, and the recently re-opened Bachelor Lake Mine is situated approximately 80 km's to the west. The project has a gold rich trend with a minimum strike length of over 6 km's.
Gold mineralization is very similar to the "Osisko type mineralization" as seen in the Malartic mining camp. Osisko Mining Corporation's Canadian Malartic mine hosts a total of 10.7 million ounces of Proven and Probable reserves).
The Diego Property is located 40 km's southwest of the town of Chapais, in the Province of Quebec.
The property covers 49 contiguous claims covering a total of 4,300 hectares.
Historic drilling on the Diego project outlined an 8.0 kilometers by 1.2 kilometers porphyry intrusion that hosts several gold halos of which the main one is 2.4 kilometers by 0.3 kilometers. In 2010 the previous operator, Cartier Resources, validated the potential of the project through a field reconnaissance where results from surface grab samples* produced 5.02 g/t Au, 4.83 g/t Au and 4.08 g/t Au, 2.01 g/t Au, 1.55 g/t Au et 1,16 g/t Au.
The property covers a prospective regional deformation zone that straddles the contact between volcanics and sediments. On the property the gold-bearing structure is confirmed with previous drill intersections featuring gold mineralization over widths up to 160 meters. Numerous altered and mineralized (gold-rich) felsic intrusives are hosted at the volcanic-sediment contact within the deformation zone.
