The Gatineau Zinc project is located about 30 kilometres south of the town of Maniwaki and about 200 kilometres northwest of the city of Montreal, Quebec.
The project consists of seven claim blocks, for a total of 259 claims covering a surface area of about 167 square kilometers.
Strong potential for a major Sedex-type zinc deposit in dolomitic marbles of the Grenville Supergroup, similar to deposits in the Balmat-Edwards district (43 MT at 10% Zn) located in New York State in the United States.
The Gatineau Zinc project includes surface deposits at Leitch and Lafontaine, where channel samples graded up to 24.1% Zn over 3.0 metres (Leitch) and 21.0% Zn over 2.0 metres (Lafontaine).
In 2011, drill hole GAT-11-03 intersected a new mineralized zone with semi-massive sphalerite and pyrrhotite that graded 3.8% Zn over 1.85 metres, including 6.6% Zn over 0.80 metre. Near surface, another disseminated sphalerite zone graded 4.7% Zn over 1.15 metres. This drill hole is located about 100 metres southwest of the Leitch zinc deposit.
On the Bouchette claim block, drill hole GAT-11-07 intersected a disseminated sphalerite zone hosted in dolomitic marbles, which graded 3.24% Zn over 2.0 metres including 6.68% Zn over 0.5 metre.
New and untested gravity and electromagnetic (VTEM, Max-Min, and PEM) anomalies located near the Leitch and Lafontaine deposits.
The Gatineau Zn project is currently in Joint-Venture between Midland (50%) and SOQUEM INC. (50%).
