StraightUp's President and CEO, Mr. Mark Brezer, said, "This is an exciting step into an area within the Confederation-Uchi greenstone belt that has been largely unexplored. The Ferdinand Gold Project is within a crustal scale deformation zone that has never seen a drill hole. Results from our recent Heli-bourne Magnetic survey have identified high priority targets and important geologic structures for crews to begin prospecting, sampling and mapping."
The Ferdinand Gold Property is 13 km northwest of the town of Slate Falls. Access is currently by logging roads with forestry logging operations scheduled for expansion into the property. It is located within the south-eastern extension of the Confederation-Uchi greenstone belt, one of the best metal endowed greenstone belts by square kilometre in the world with past production and current resources totaling 64M oz. of gold. Crustal scale structural features such as the Fry-Bamaji deformation zone traverse the length of the property (Figure 2). Regional, coarse, government-sponsored magnetic surveys of the Ferdinand Gold Property display folded stratigraphy along possibly D2 structures. These structural features are important for gold-bearing hydrothermal fluids and traps. There is not one Ontario Geological Survey registered drill hole on the entire property.
