The Sunday Lake Property is comprised of 13 square-kilometres of patented
mining claims located four kilometres east of Detour’s
| Open pit gold reserves of |
15.6 million ounce
deposit in the Northern Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Ontario that is currently under
development by Detour Gold Corporation
The Detour Lake project is located within the northwestern portion of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield. The supracrustal rocks in the project area consist of mafic and ultamafic volcanic rocks of the Deloro Group in thrust contact to the south with the younger Porcupine sedimentary sequence.
This regional east-west thrust zone is referred to as the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone ("SLDZ") and can be traced over a distance of more than 20 kilometres on the property.
It is defined by a deeply mylonitized and mineralized siliceous alteration zone, referred to as the Chert Marker Horizon ("CMH"), which marks the contact between the basaltic and ultramafic terranes.

SUNDAY LAKE GOLD PROPERTY at Detour Lake
A preliminary evaluation of a 2009 airborne geophysical survey released by the Ontario Geological Survey infers that a favorable structural horizon transects the Sunday
Lake Property. The geophysical data confirms that the Sunday Lake claims which lie immediately to the east of the Detour Lake gold deposit are associated with the
same deformation trend - the Sunday Lake Fault.
