Simkar Gold Property - Val d'Or

Example of historical best results

NI 43-101 Ressources calculation on Simkar property


The Simkar Gold property is located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt and includes a large sequence of Malartic Group volcanics and pyroclastics striking east-west and dipping steeply toward the south. This assemblage is intruded by quartz-feldspar porphyry dykes and sills, with which gold mineralization is spatially associated.


The 2013 drilling program, which consisted of 18,000 metres of diamond drilling, led to a better understanding of the mineralized systems below and in the extensions of the old workings, as well as other mineralized zones near surface and to the south of the historical zones.

This mineralization is Sigma/Louvicourt-type mineralization, which is the result of fracturing of the relatively competent sill-like (mainly diorite) intrusions, followed by the growth of en-echelon vein systems. Progressive deformation causes dilation, and repeated reopening results in "crack and seal" veins, often with bands of tourmaline that form with successive infillings. The veins pinch and swell, and often branch and intersect in response to localized stress fields.

Work Planned

Monarques Gold is planning a new exploration strategy for the project that takes into account the regional context, with the goal of identifying new exploration targets.
