Transition Conducts Airborne Geophysical to explore for large scale copper-gold systems in Sudbury Region

Nov 2, 2020

Transition Metals Corp has consolidated land packages totaling 154 square kilometres covering a range of polymetallic Gold (Au), Copper (Cu) Silver (Ag) and Tungsten (W) deposits near Sudbury. The project areas as shown in Figure 1, cover extensive trends of brecciated and strongly sodic altered rocks close to major crustal structures that appear to control clusters of base and precious metal mineralization. Table 1 gives a summary of the major geological features and work plan for the project areas.

CEO Scott McLean commented, "The presence of widespread occurrences of gold, copper and other metals in the Huronian rocks in the Sudbury Area has been recognized since the early days of mining in the district. It has only been recently however, that exploration technology and our understanding about the large scale processes including new models for Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) deposits has advanced to the stage where the potential of these systems can now be systematically evaluated."
