District Scale property of unexplored Balmer Assemblage lithologies similar to those that host the Red Lake Gold Camp
GoldON Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GLD) (“GoldON” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition via staking of a 100% interest in the McInnes Lake property (the “Property”) in northwestern Ontario.
Located approximately 100 kilometres (km) east of the Ontario-Manitoba border and 117 km north of the town of Red Lake, the Property is composed of 31 contiguous mining claims (577 cells) totaling approximately 11,424 hectares. The Property is 29 km long and up to 8.5 km wide.

The McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt lies within the North Caribou Terrane of the Superior Province. Deep penetrating seismic studies north from the English River domain through the Uchi domain into the Berens River Complex of the North Caribou Terrane have shown that the gold deposits of the Red Lake camp and gold deposits along the LP Fault, recently discovered by Great Bear Resources, are associated with deep crustal-scale features.
According to seismic survey interpretations by Zang and Calvert 2006, the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt is interpreted to lie along a northern extension of a deep crustal E1 extensional shear zone. This has geological and mineralization implications for fluid and magmatic pathways for various precious and base metal deposit models.

The McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt is comprised of a volcanic-sediment package of rocks representing a back-arc environment ‘sandwiched’ in between two opposing granitic masses. Age-dating of the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt volcanic rocks are 2.93-2.97 billion years old representing Balmer Assemblage aged lithologies (OGS Map P3589). The Balmer Assemblage is host to most of the current gold resources and historical gold production in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt.
“Based on the association of these deep crustal-scale features to the deposits of the Red Lake Camp, we took a more regional approach to find similar structural pronouncements that led us to the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt,” said Mike Romanik president of GoldON. “This gives us a rare opportunity to control an entire belt that has seen very limited exploration; we are proceeding with a detailed compilation of all historical data to plan our initial fieldwork program.”
