The Juno target is located 23 kilometers southeast of the Aurizona Gold Mine and is centered on a large artisanal pit (JNO01) that extends for 100 meters in a northeast direction. Gold mineralization is contained in a smoky and milky quartz vein set within a shallow-dipping northeast trending shear zone that cuts through an amphibolite unit. The amphibolite is altered to sericite-kaolin-quartz+chlorite in the footwall of the shear zone. Reconnaissance rock grab sampling has returned samples ranging from below detection limit up to 5.54 grams of gold per tonne (g/t Au) gold at the Juno target and an outcrop channel sampling program will be conducted when water levels in the pits drop.
Luna will advance the understanding of this new target through focused sampling programs, structural mapping and interpretation. The Company’s objective is to rank these new targets against the existing targets at Luna Greenfields. The diverse geology and association of gold mineralization with regional-scale shear zones are significant targets.
