Project Overview

The Palermo gold project comprises 240 hectares and is located in the Hebecourt Township, approximately 50 kilometres northwest of Val D’Or, Quebec. Palermo lies in the central portion of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, in an area underlain by a folded sequence of bimodal Archean age volcanic flows and sills of mafic to felsic composition and diorite intrusions.


Historic diamond drilling intersected rock units described as syenite porphyry and amphibolite. Highlights from the 13 drill holes include:

  • 0.24 opt Au over 1.2 feet in DDH P-3 (8.23 g/t Au over 0.36 metres)
  • 0.05 opt Au over 5 feet in DDH P-7 (1.71 g/t Au over 1.52 metres)
  • 0.05 opt Au over 1 foot in DDH P-12 (1.71 g/t Au over 0.30 metres)

The quoted drill intersections are core length not true width, which is unknown. Universal has not yet verified the historic exploration drilling. Source: Palermo Gold Mines Ltd. DDH Logs P1 to P-13, 1948. SIGEOM Examine Report Number GM10744.
