General Information

Abstract: The Wolverine massive sulfide project lies within the Finlayson belt, an elongate composite body bound on the southwest by the Tintina Fault zone and on the northeast by the Finlayson Lake fault zone, and comprising mainly rocks belonging to the pericratonic Yukon-Tanana Terrane. The Wolverine Deposit is hosted by Devonian-Mississippian aged carbonaceous metaseediments and metamorphosed volcanic and pyroclastic felsic rocks of the Yukon-Tanana Terrane.

The Wolverine Deposit was discovered in 1995 after a surface exploration program generated multi-element soil anomalies. Drill testing intersected massive sulfide mineralization. The massive sulfide body is zoned, polymetallic and displays banded, clastic and massive-replacement textures. Drilling to date suggests that it has a tabular morphology. The main sulfide minerals in order of decreasing abundance are pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and galena.
