Visible Gold from Archean Greenstone Belt
« on: April 05, 2018, 11:47:19 AM »
Last summer a friend of mine asked me to help out with his claim in Northern Manitoba.  It was a nice area to work in, a really textbook Archean auriferous greenstone belt.   

This nugget was about 2mm length wise.

Found in this location, the previous claim holder took the channel cuts.

Large alteration zone, once again the previous claim holder took the channel cuts. They did a lot of work on the claim, sold it then the buyer let the claim lapse.

And just for fun here is an extremely colourful common garter snake we came across.
