Location and field work
The Niska property (previously known as ”39”), which is wholly owned by Sirios, is located about 30 kilometres northwest of the km 381 relay station on the James Bay road connecting Matagami to Radisson in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec. The property is composed of 189 mining claims, covering an area of 99 sq. km. It is located between the Munischiwan property, co-owned by Azimut Exploration and SOQUEM and the recent Patwon discovery on Azimut’s Elmer Gold Property, where drilling results yielded 3.15 g/t Au over 102.0 m, including 10.1 g/t Au over 20.5 m. (Azimut press release January 14, 2020)
A high-resolution, helicopter-borne magnetic survey will be initiated in mid February 2020. It will cover the entire property block with a 50-meter line spacing, totalling 2,394-line kilometres. This survey will provide Sirios’ exploration team with valuable geophysical information detailing the northeast-southwest trending shear zone identified in the summer of 2019 on the original claims of the “39” Property. This potentially favourable shear zone is interpreted to extend onto Sirios’ recently acquired mineral claims.
