Gold Exploration in Québec, and the Benoist Project
Gold exploration in Québec has a long and rich history. This legacy creates opportunities for the next generation of companies that have a strategy and the technology to uncover the next deposits of gold.
Today’s infographic highlights the work of Cartier Resources and its Benoist Project, located in the heart of the gold-mining region of Quebec, the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. Let’s dive in and see how the company is building on history to make new discoveries.
Building on History: Exploration at The Benoist Project
The Benoist Project has a history of work dating back to 1935. Prospectors first discovered mineralized boulders on the shores of Pusticamica Lake. Since then ~36,000 meters of exploration drilling revealed a gold deposit on the property.
In 2020, Cartier resources delivered a maiden resource on the property which revealed 234,000 ounces of gold (Measured and Indicated), with the help of modern exploration techniques.
Cartier Resources is drilling its 100%-owned Benoist Project to expand the resource at the Pusticamica deposit and discover new areas of gold mineralization adjacent to a known gold resource.
Data, Knowledge, and Technology in Action
Cartier Resources is deploying the latest in mineral exploration innovation, OreVision-IP. This technology reveals the next group of Pusticamica deposit-type targets.
Previous geophysical surveys using standard IP technology failed to detect the deposits at depth. However, OreVision-IP revealed more gold and exploration targets between 150 meters and 450 meters.
OreVision-IP generated over 100 anomalies for further exploration. Of these, the company prioritized 16 drill hole targets and eight have similar geophysical signatures to the Pusticamica Gold Deposit.
The Next Stage of Gold Discovery at Benoist
Work by Cartier Resources so far has laid the foundations for the next stage of growth at the Benoist Project. With the 2020 maiden resource, the company is planning a further 30,000 meters of drilling throughout 2021.
With a jurisdiction known for its mining history, the Benoist project sits on the edge of discovery to continue the legacy of gold exploration in Québec.
