Majestic Gold Corp. (MJS.V)
Gold mineralization on Song Jiaguo is hosted by a series of steeply dipping, sub-parallel north-northeast trending fault zones within upper Cretaceous conglomerates overlying Proterozoic granitic rocks. The area of Song Jiaguo is interpreted as being the higher levels of a mesothermal system where gold bearing fluids have mineralized the matrix of the host conglomerates. The gold bearing quartz veins would then likely continue too much lower levels in the system.
Gold is a soft, shiny, yellow, dense, malleable, ductile (trivalent and univalent) transition metal; gold does not react with most chemicals but is attacked by chlorine, fluorine and aqua regia. The metal occurs as nuggets of gold, or grains of gold in rocks and in alluvial deposits and is one of the coinage metals.
Majestic Gold Corp. engages in the exploration and development of mineral properties in China. The company focuses on its gold project located in the prolific gold region of Song Jiagou in eastern Shandong Province. Majestic Gold Corp. is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
