Gold Exploration in Québec, and the Benoist Project
Gold exploration in Québec has a long and rich history. This legacy creates opportunities for the next generation of companies that have a strategy and the technology to uncover the next deposits of gold.
Today’s infographic highlights the work of Cartier Resources and its Benoist Project, located in the heart of the gold-mining region of Quebec, the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. Let’s dive in and see how the company is building on history to make new discoveries.
Building on History: Exploration at The Benoist Project
The Benoist Project has a history of work dating back to 1935. Prospectors first discovered mineralized boulders on the shores of Pusticamica Lake. Since then ~36,000 meters of exploration drilling revealed a gold deposit on the property.
In 2020, Cartier resources delivered a maiden resource on the property which revealed 234,000 ounces of gold (Measured and Indicated), with the help of modern exploration techniques.
Cartier Resources is drilling its 100%-owned Benoist Project to expand the resource at the Pusticamica deposit and discover new areas of gold mineralization adjacent to a known gold resource.
Data, Knowledge, and Technology in Action
Cartier Resources is deploying the latest in mineral exploration innovation, OreVision-IP. This technology reveals the next group of Pusticamica deposit-type targets.
Previous geophysical surveys using standard IP technology failed to detect the deposits at depth. However, OreVision-IP revealed more gold and exploration targets between 150 meters and 450 meters.
