The Cardiac Creek deposit was discovered in 1994 by Inmet Mining Corp. Initial drilling programs outlined a historical mineral resource of 12Mt grading 8.6% Zn, 1.5% Pb, 17.1g/t Ag.
The deposit consists of two distinct mineral facies: The proximal facies, characterised by 20 to 60 centimetre thick, internally laminated, very fine-grained, dull brown pyrite beds with increasing amounts of with steel grey sphalerite bands towards the contact with the Cardiac Creek Zone; and the Cardiac Creek Zone characterised by 30 to 200 centimetre thick internally laminated sulphide beds very fine-grained, dull-brown pyrite, very fine-grained steel grey sphalerite bands with minor galena, and barite interbedded with generally featureless pyritic black siliceous shale beds. Higher grade Zn and Pb mineralisation is associated with a “mottled” texture within the sphalerite bands.
