Property Midrim

Property location and access

The Midrim Property consists of 17 claims in the Ville-Marie area of Western Quebec, south of the Rouyn-Noranda mining camp (NTS map areas 31M/6 and 31M/11). The property is situated in the Baby Township, Témiscamingue County, Quebec, approximately 25 km east of Lake Timiskaming and the Quebec-Ontario provincial border at 79°-14'W longitude

Property status

Fieldex is the titleholder to a 100% ownership in the Mdirm property. 

Property geology

The Midrim mineralization is hosted within an elongate, east-west trending gabbroic intrusion approximately 330 m long and 85 m wide (Figure 4).  The gabbro, which locally grades into a pyroxenite, is hosted in a thick package of volcanic tuffaceous and basaltic rocks.  The entire package, including the mineralization, is cut by younger QFP dykes.  Several northeast-southwest trending faults cut the gabbro.

Mineralization

The main Midrim mineralization occurs in the eastern pinch of the gabbro along the southern margin.  A smaller pod of mineralization occurs below a large tuffaceous block at the western end of the gabbro. 
Multiple zones of massive to semi-massive and blebby to disseminated sulphides at the base of a differentiated gabbro sill plunge along a 290º azimuth. The plunge steepens from 20º in the east to 45º or more in the west. Fieldex began work at Midrim in 2000 with outcrop stripping, ground magnetics, mapping and diamond drilling. This work has defined a number of high-grade sulphide bodies, including the No. 1, No. 5, West and No. 6 Zones.
