Located within the city limits of Timmins, Ontario, the Porcupine complex includes approximately 38,000 hectares of mining claims. Paved-road access is readily available, as the principal properties straddle Highway 101.
The Porcupine mines are situated in the Porcupine Camp in Archean rocks of the western Abitibi Greenstone belt in the Canadian Shield. These consist of ultramafic and mafic volcanic rocks of the Keewatin subgroup overlain by sedimentary rocks of the Timiskaming group. The lands lie adjacent and to the north of the regionally significant Porcupine Destor Fault. Gold mineralization is found in a number of different structural settings and consists of continuous quartz carbonate veins, quartz tourmaline veins, quartz stockworks and gold associated with disseminated sulphides.
