HIGHLIGHTS

  • 143 claims (67.2 km2) 100%-held by Harfang (SNRC 24C15, 24C16 and 24F02); no NSR; property located 125 km south of Kuujjuaq and 265 km north of Schefferville; only accessible by aerial transportation;
  • 7 prospects and showings inside the property limits: Marymac I, Marymac II, Island and Lepage (combined), Float, Redcliff, Nine South;
  • Historical resources published in previous exploration reports for 4 of the mineralized sites: 1,088,000 Mt @ 2.02% Cu, 0.45% Ni, 1.0 g/t Pt and 3.1 g/t Pd for Lepage et Island zones combined, 1,068,000 Mt @ 2.09% Cu and 0.51% Ni for the Redcliff prospect and 133,000 Mt @ 2.10% Cu et 0.43% Ni for the Float prospect (resources not compliant to CIM standards as requested by the NI 43-101);
  • Lithologies belonging to Paleoproterozoic units of the Labrador Through, in the central portion of the New-Québec Orogen;
  • Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd mineralization hosted in glomeroporphyritic gabbroic (± pyroxenitic) sills emplaced in effusive and pyroclastic volcanic rocks of the Murdoch Formation; 2 main mineralization types: 1) magmatic mineralization with semi-massive to massive sulfides (rarely disseminated) in sills, 2) late hydrothermal mineralization most commonly on the edge of sills and in adjacent volcano-sedimentary rocks; type 2 is often anomalous in gold and silver;
  • More than 160 drillholes done in the 1970’s and 1980’s defined the flatten ellipsoidal shape of sulfide lenses (length: 185-550 m; width: 95-205 m; thickness: 30 m maximum); the longest axis plunges moderately towards the northeast;
  • 3 recent geophysical airborne surveys: 1) 2003 AeroTEM survey covering all known Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd occurrences (Mag and EM); 2) 2011 VTEM survey covering the Marymac I and II prospects as well as Float and Redcliff occurrences (Mag and EM); 2011 GDS survey (Mag and Spectrometry);
  • Last exploration phase (brief prospecting, resampling of old drillcore) in the Marymac region by Golden Valley Mines in 2003; identification of intervals with high Pt-Pd grades (eg. 2.01 g/t Pt and 10.20 g/t Pd over 0.5 m) which had never been sampled;
  • No follow-up done on electromagnetic anomalies detected in 2011;
  • Geocientific compilation by C. St-Hilaire (2019) which outlined an 18 km2 prospective area.

UPCOMING EXPLORATION PROGRAM

  • Conception of a digital database which will include all pertinent information (e.g. lake sediment and rock geochemistry, geology, geophysics, mineralized occurrences) from mining company and government reports;
  • Evaluation of the mineralization potential both at surface (prospecting) and at depth (drillcore stored on site).
