Ashley Gold/Matachewan


Ashley Claim Map

The Ashley Mine is a high-grade quartz vein similar to the lodes of the Porcupine and Kirkland Lake gold camps. It produced 50,099 ounces of gold from 157,636 tons of ore (0.32 oz. Au/ton) from the main Ashley vein between 1932 and 1937. The vein strikes north, dips west at 30 to 50 degrees and has been followed underground for 600 metres. (Petromet Resources Ltd. (1982))

Historical surface exploration work documents 7 gold bearing veins on the Property. The Garvey Vein, 1.3 kilometres northwest of Ashley, produced a 26 ton bulk sample yielding 0.86 oz Au/ton. (Petromet Resources Ltd. (1982))

The Wydee option has several syenite bodies that resemble the Young-Davidson host rocks. A number of syenite bodies have been identified with coincident magnetic lows and will be systematically tested.

The Matachewan option has known gold showings, gold intersections in several drill holes, a large area of anomalously high gold-in-soil, and a three kilometer section of the Cadillac-Larder Lake covered under Cobalt Group Proterozoic sedimentary rocks.

Prosper Gold has the option to earn a 100% interest in the Ashley Mine and a 90% interest in the Wydee and Matachewan claims. A copy of the option agreements are available on
