Willeson Metals is a private Canadian mining and exploration company that has four 100% owned exploration properties in the Lynn Lake Region of Manitoba. The company’s flagship property is the Beaucage Gold Property. The other properties comprising the exploration portfolio include the following: The Hughes Gold Property, the Barrington-Tow Gold, Nickel, Copper and Copper-Zinc Property, and the Hatchet Gold Copper-Zinc Property. The properties are all located in the same orogenic belt as the Homestake Mine.
The Beaucage Property, encompassing 5,888 ha, is located 72 km southeast of the town of Lynn Lake, Manitoba within the Paleoproterozoic Lynn Lake greenstone belt, of the internal Reindeer Zone of the Trans-Hudson Orogen. The belt is bounded by the South Indian Domain to the north, and by the Kisseynew Gneissic Domain to the south.
Beaucage lies along the contact of the Lynn Lake belt and Kisseynew Domain. The property is known to host multiple styles of gold mineralization, including iron formation-hosted, structurally controlled quartz stockwork and veins in clastic sediments, and quartz-filled shear zones in the Black Trout Diorite, all hosting numerous significant historical gold assay values. The property has seen little modern exploration; many of the high-grade gold occurrences have not been systematically explored in almost 30 years.Go to Project Page
