Geology and Mineralization
The Kutcho property contains three known Kuroko-type volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits. They are aligned in a westerly plunging linear trend and from east to west they are called the Main, Sumac, and Esso deposits. The largest of the three, the Main deposit, comes to surface near the eastern end of this trend, whereas the Esso deposit occurs at depths about 400-600 metres below surface at the western or down plunge end of the trend as it is currently known. The Sumac deposit lies between the Main and Esso deposits both laterally and vertically, but has seen only cursory drilling. The mineralized trend is open down plunge but is poorly explored.
