59 contiguous unpatented mining claims and 60 claim units covering approximately 960 hectares (approx. 2,400 acres) located in the West Timmins Gold District, approximately 18 km southwest of Timmins, Ontario.
The property covers several gold occurrences and lies several kilometers east and southeast of the Lake Shore Gold Corp.’s Golden River Zone and Timmins West Gold Deposit.
Croxall: Exploration 2009 and 2010
An eight-hole diamond drilling program consisting of 2,863 metres commenced in August 2009 by Temex Resources Corp. and was completed in October 2009. The program was undertaken to test new target areas for gold mineralization, to undercut historical gold-bearing drill intercepts and locate additional mineralization within the hematite altered porphyries known to cross through the claim group from the Black Pearl and Timmins West Properties, located immediately to the west.
The Croxall property was optioned by Mill City in October 2010 based on its favourable geological position and the fact that it contained known gold mineralization. It is contiguous to the east of the Golden River trend being explored by Lake Shore Gold and is underlain by similar stratigraphy that hosts gold mineralization on the Lake Shore Gold property.
The southern portion of the Croxall Property covers 3 kilometers of the Porcupine-Destor Fault, a key marker for gold mineralization in the Timmins camp, and the property is known to host more than one “syenite” type gold-bearing porphyry body similar to that being explored by Lake Shore Gold and also to the north of Croxall on the Explor Resources property.
Croxall: 2011 Exploration Objectives
The Company is planning to carry out a 6 hole, 2,500 m diamond drilling program this summer to test for gold mineralization associated with the porphyry bodies which remain untested in all directions.
