Sewell, Ontario

The 2.7 km2 (270 hectares) Sewell property was acquired by Richmont in 2002. It is located in the Northern Swayze greenstone belt, part of the archean Abitibi subprovince, which is a Neoarchean granitoide-greenstone terrane. Mineralization on the property is associated with a WSW shear zone, which affects gabbroic to syenitic intrusive rocks with some metavolcanics. Gold has been found inside the shear zone in quartz carbonate veins with coarse pyrite and some chalcopyrite. The shear zone includes chlorite and carbonate alteration with some disseminated pyrite. This property hosts a high-grade vein system which has yielded 19.2 g/t Au over 2.4 metres, and 9.6 g/t Au over 2.1 metres during previous drilling.
