Hungry Gully Project, Jamaica
The Hungry Gully Project (HGP) consists of a wholly-owned Special Exclusive Prospecting Licenses (SEPL) covering 48 sq. km. The HGP is located within the southern part of the highly tectonized altered and mineralized Cretaceous Blue Mountain Inlier (Map 1). Limited focused exploration has been completed to date at the HGP.
The geologic history of subduction, crustal thickening and tectonism has produced extensive mineralization within areas of Cretaceous rock throughout the Caribbean (Map 2), such as at the Pueblo Viejo deposit, which contains more than 36 million ounces gold and 930 million pounds copper.
Exploration and prospecting to date, although limited, demonstrates the excellent potential at HGP for economically-viable epithermal gold and copper-gold skarn and porphyry deposits (Map 3).
Exploration by BHP in the 1990s indicated the presence of an epithermal gold system at Round Hill within the HGP that may be distal and to a copper + gold ± molybdenum system at the nearby Dunrobin site (Map 4).
Exploration will focus on determining the extent and grades of the epithermal and porphyry systems at BGP plus screening BGP for other mineralization.
