Highlights of the Chapais Property:
Brossard, Quebec – April 8, 2021 – Windfall Geotek Inc. (the “Company”, or “Windfall”) (TSXV:WIN), (OTC:WINKF), (FSE:L7C2) is pleased to announce the opening of a bidding process for its asset near Chapais, Quebec. The Chapais Property lies within the Chapais mining district and Chapais-Chibougamau mining camp. Regional mineralization styles found in this district include but are not limited to the Opemiska type copper-gold systems.
Location, Access and Infrastructure of the Chapais Property
The Windfall Geotek’s Chapais Property is located 490 km northwest of Montreal, 2 km west of the town of Chapais and 40 km southwest of Chibougamau in northern Quebec (NTS map sheet 32G/15). – Property is comprised of 36 claims, covers 1,560 hectares of surface area and is located 490 km’s NW of Montreal, Quebec, Canada (Figure 2). – Road accessible & grid power access. Direct road access to the Chapais Property is via route 113 to provide access to the deposits. Route 113 is a paved regional highway that is part of the Trans-Canada Highway. The road begins 2.5 km south of the community of the town of Chapais. The access road is currently used for diamond drill and personnel access to the site all year around. A series of ATV trails provide access to the property. Close access to the provincial electrical transmission grid is available along Route 113 near the town of Chapais that runs through the Chapais Property Land Claims. (Figure 2 – Quebec Route 113 & Electric Transmission Grid Wires) – Coordinates for the center of the Project site are latitude 49˚ 48’ 16’’ N and longitude -74˚ 54’ 37’’ W (506480mE, 5516890mN) at an elevation of 332 m.
Nathan Tribble P.Geo, Director commented: “The Chapais Property is well situated in a prolific region that has produced over 1 billion pounds of copper and 1 million ounces of gold. It’s exciting to see the large CARDS AI generated targets within favorable rock types that were host to the historic Perry and Springer mines adjacent to our land package. During this new supercycle of electrification metals this is a fabulous project that should gain a lot of attention here in short order.”
Dinesh Kandanchatha, Chairman & Interim CEO commented: “As we engage with our strategic review, the management team of Windfall is looking to maximize the value of the company’s resource assets. With the demand for Copper and other base metals, Windfall is looking to develop this asset with the right operational partner. This property and AI targets reflect our commitment to our business plan of focusing on battery metal opportunities that can drive long term royalties for shareholders.”
Geological & Historical context
The Chapais area is host to four past producing mines which from 1953 to 1991 producing well over 1 billion pounds of copper and 1 million ounces of gold (Sigeom, MRN and Figure 1) – The Chapais property is located in the upper part of the stratigraphic volcanic sequences of northeastern Abitibi volcanic belt, where the ultramafic Cumming Complex intrudes mafic and felsic rocks of the Waconichi Formation and mafic rocks of the upper Roy Group. – Mineralization on the Chapais property may be of Opémiska style copper-gold vein type, particularly given its proximity to the Springer and Perry mines. The mineralized veins of the Springer mine are restricted to fracture networks contained in the ophitic parts of the gabbroic Venture sill, which continues into the Chapais property.
