Bella Maria is underlain by a series of granodiorites and quartz porphyries that intrude metamorphic rocks. Previous workers identified two zones of significant gold mineralization, approximately 2 km apart. One zone, in the south-central portion of the property, consists of a silica-sulphide breccia that has returned assays averaging 4.5 g/t Au over 40 m from continuous rock chip sampling, including 10.8 g/t Au over 16 m. The second zone occurs 2 km to the northwest and consists of stockwork veins from which grab samples assayed up to 10.8 g/t Au and chip samples returned assays up to 0.54 g/t Au over 6 m. The two zones are separated by an area of thick vegetation and poor exposure with many unexplained geochemical anomalies. Data on the property are being compiled in preparation for initiating further exploration.
