The Project consists of 445 single-cell mining claims and 1 multi-cell mining claim totaling 464 units covering approximately 9,780 hectares and is located approximately 50km north of Terrace Bay, Ontario. The Project is easily accessible year around by Wintering Rd. and logging road networks. The Project is southeast of the Brunswick Exploration’s Georgia Lake Lithium project.
There are 25 mapped pegmatite outcrops on the Project which have not been thoroughly tested for LCT (Lithium, Cesium, Tantalum) mineralization.
The Property is located in the Dickson Lake, Bray Lake, and Kamuck Lake Area of the Thunder Bay Mining Division.
The Property is located in the Dickson Lake, Bray Lake, and Kamuck Lake Area of the Thunder Bay Mining Division. The nearest population centre is Terrace Bay, ON which is located 50km south. The Project is accessed by taking Wintering Rd north from Trans-Canada Highway 17 for 50km, this transects the property and there are arterial logging roads which allow access to the extents of the property. Wintering Rd is an all season road.
The project has been underexplored but has seen sporadic exploration for base metals in the late 1980’s. No work completed on the project has been focused on the economic potential of the pegmatites present.
The property is situated within the Quetico subprovince, an Archean aged terrane comprised predominantly of metasedimentary gneiss, derived migmatites, granitoid intrusives and amphibolite. The rocks have undergone regional metamorphism to almandine-amphibolite facies. Metasedimentary rocks are dominantly greywacke in composition, with lesser arenite and arkose. Migmitization of these metasediments is generally pervasive with some sections remaining unaffected. Intrusive bodies range in composition from granite to quartz monzonite and are, for the most part, in gradational contact with migmatite.
Project is underlain by metasediments, derived migmatites, and felsic intrusives which are crosscut by predominantly northwest and northeast trending dikes and steeply dipping faults. Regional grade of metamorphism is amphibolite faces.
Claims were staked based on preferred geologic environments and historical mapping, most of this area has seen little to no exploration.
Mapping completed in 1974 by Carter indicates that there are at least 25 pegmatite outcrops on the property. These are primarily composed of white and pink pegmatite with minor aplite (garnet, biotite, tourmaline. The pegmatites mapped vary in size from single small outcrops to areas that are 1,000m long and 100m wide. Although the previous mapping indicates that there are pegmatites present on the Project, the company has yet to determine the dimensions, extent, or any mineralization that may be present on the Project. The project has been underexplored but has seen sporadic exploration for base metals in the late 1980’s.
