Fish Creek is a 100% owned 6,028 ha (60.28 km2) land package, located in the Barama Greenstone Belt, 10 km west of Arakaka. The project features a high density of large-scale historical and current artisanal mining. The property is located within a large, regional structural zone and contains numerous drill-ready targets. The Fish Creek project has seen only shallow drilling; however, shallow drill holes did encounter gold-rich mineralization.
Drill Highlights Include:
- FI-96/10: 11.4 g/t Au over 7 m, including 37 g/t over 2.0 m
- Fi97/19: 2.8 g/t Au over 3.1 m & 2.4 g/t over 1.6 m
The property is host to a northeast-trending deformation zone host to high-grade quartz veins, with coincident geophysical and geochemical anomalies covering 4 by 8 km. The area has returned 100,000 oz Au of artisanal production from surface oxide and high-grade vein zones. The Fish Creek property is less than 10 km from Golden Shield’s Arakaka property. Only limited shallow drilling has occurred at Fish Creek (2,870 m) but drilling intersected widespread low-grade gold haloes surrounding high-grade deformation zones. The property remains largely undrilled.
Access and Location
The Fish Creek project is situated in the Barama-Waimi District of northwest Guyana. Fish Creek is approximately 170 km northwest of the capital, Georgetown. Daily commercial flights occur from Georgetown to the Matthew’s ridge airstrip, located less than 5 km from the project site. Project access is through a well-maintained, all-weather dirt road.
Infrastructure on the property has been extensively improved by the Bosai Minerals Group (Guyana) Inc. manganese mine.
