This Assessment Report documents a re-logging of diamond drill core in 2010 from a program done in 2005 to assess the resource potential for Dolomite in the Jeune Landing Area. A high MgO assay was discovered on June 18, 2004 by J. Shearer. Subsequently a program of prospecting, rock sampling, line cutting, geological mapping, trail building, percussion drilling and diamond drilling was completed in 2004 and 2005.
Quatsino Sound has a long history of mining both metals (gold, copper, lead/zinc, silver and iron) and industrial minerals such as high calcium limestones and chalky geyserite and high silica rocks. Preliminary water depth soundings were made northwest of Jeune Landing in early December 2004 to quantify barging loadout possibilities.
The area is mainly underlain by Upper Triassic Karmutsen Volcanics, Quatsino Limestone and Bonanza Volcanic rocks. The Karmutsen Formation is a very thick sequence of mainly amygdaloidal pillow basalts. The Quatsino Formation is composed mainly of limestone. Above the Quatsino is the relatively complex Bonanza Volcanics and volcanoclastic sediments. These rocks are locally intruded by small bodies of granitic igneous rocks of Jurassic to Tertiary age.
