Cullaton & Griffin Lake reconnaissance (148911)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Nic Rosengren
Company: Barrick Gold
Start Date: 2018-06-01
End Date: 2022-08-30
Operation Type: Seasonal
Project Description:
Barrick Gold currently has an active project in this area addressing the closure plan and rehabilitation of the old Cullaton lake Mine site. Reference numbers are included under the land use and licensing section. The new project is a proposed visit out to Cullaton is the outcome of some regional scale geological work we have been doing looking at the mineral prospectivity of the Western Canadian Shield. The Cullaton/Griffin lake area was highlighted from this study, independently of the ground we currently hold there. Having identified the ground as geologically interesting the next step is to get into the field and confirm our interpretations by looking at the rocks on the ground, this is the purpose of the August Field visit. This validation work is essentially prospecting and entirely separate to the closure work which is why a new application is being submitted. The plan is to setup a lightweight temporary 4 person campsite on the existing Barrick tenements, near the existing core storage facility at the Cullaton Lake mine site. We are aiming to be on site there for 10 days this August and the work we undertake will involve review of the existing drillcore at the mine site and using a helicopter to enable field visits to outcropping rocks to understand the geology. The field work component would involve taking surface rock chip samples but no systematic exploration or ground disturbance. At the end of the 10 day field trip all of the camp materials that have been brought in will be removed when the crew leaves.
