Breccia 1:  Mineralization in the Ormsby Zone occurs within a hydrothermally altered volcanic breccia.

Breccia 2:  The hydrothermal breccia is variably silicified, carbonate and sulphide altered

Glacial striae:  Very well developed glacial striae mark the metasedimentary rocks at the Ormsby Zone

Minerals:  Intensely altered Duckfish Granite underlies the BigSky Property with galena and fluorite.

Pillows:  Well formed pillows near West Zone.

Pillows 1:  Intensely stretched pillowed mafic volcanic rocks at the Bruce Lake Zone appear weakly foliated in plan but strongly lineated in section.

Pillows 2:  Same pillows as shown in Pillows1 reveal hydrothermal brecciation apparent in cores but not selvages.  Note garnet development in pillow selvages.

Teapot 1:  Extensive silica-flooding in metasediments occur at the Teapot Zone.

Teapot 2:  Another view of the Teapot Zone with a trench in the middle ground.  Area was burned in mid 1990’s when forest fires swept though the area.
