About the Grondin Gold Zone

The Grondin Zone is located in the northwest corner of the Beauce Gold property located in Beauceville and in Saint-Simon-les-Mines, Quebec.  The 2023 exploration initiatives at the Grondin Zone, comprising both bulk processing and drilling, (BGF press releases, November 1 2023 and January 18 2024)  revealed that the Grondin zone extends over 40 meters deep vertically and remains open at depth, with a mineralized structure stretching more than 300 meters in length. This zone is intrinsically linked to an antiform fold axis that spans several kilometers, suggesting that other gold showings may be present along the antiform fold and elsewhere on the Beauce Gold property indicating a significant potential for lode gold discoveries from this gold structure.  

A positive correlation applies to silver and the pathfinder elements that were identified in the Grondin mineralized antiform structure with those found in the basal till and the saprolite of the placer gold channel of the Gilbert River valley. (press release January 18, 2024) This correlation is corroborating evidence that these antiform systems could have contributed to the development of the extensive auriferous placers in Beauce.  

It also supports the hypothesis that placer gold within the Beauce Gold paleochannel, including the renowned large nuggets from the 19th century, formed in stressed quartz pockets within layered domed Axis of Antiforms, exemplified by Saddle Reef formations. Notable global Saddle Reef formations include the Bendigo gold fields in Australia (over 60 million ounces) and the high-grade Dufferin deposit in Nova Scotia.
