Lustdust is a carbonate replacement deposit (CRD) and related porphyry system that includes gold-silver-zinc mantos, gold silver rich copper skarn, limestone hosted gold, porphyry Cu-Mo (Au) and precious metal quartz-vein mineralization. In excess of 334 drill holes totalling over 74,000 meters have been completed. An initial resource was published in 2010 (R. Simpson, P.Geo: Technical Report; filed by Alpha Gold, now ALQ Resources), on a small area of the mineralized system known as the Copper Canyon Skarn. At a 1.5% Cu cut off the indicated resource is 910,000 tonnes grading 1.56% Cu, 1.68 g/t Au and 39.3 g/t Ag and the inferred resource is a further 1.96 million tonnes grading 1.34% Cu, 1.72 g/t Au and 32.1 g/t Ag. Geophysical surveys indicate a good potential for discovering additional skarn mineralization and magnetic and soil geochemical sampling suggest that the mineralizing system extends well beyond the known mineralized zones. The prospective area is in excess of 6 km in length and 4-5 km wide.
The Lustdust Property lies along the western border of Serengeti Resources Inc.'s Kwanika Creek copper-gold property (recently published a PEA). and is approximately 30 km south of Lorraine Copper's 49% owned Lorraine Property which is a joint venture with Teck Resources Limited.
