Property

Highlights

  • Contains a series of mafic intrusions of the Soissons suite.
  • Recent geochronological work by the Geological survey of Canada recently returned an age of 1311±1.1 Ma for the Soissons suite, close to the age of the Voisey’s Bay troctolite (1332.7±1 Ma), host to the world-class Ni-Cu-Co Voisey’s Bay deposit. The Soissons intrusions also belong to the Nain plutonic suite (1330 to 1290 Ma).
  • Unexplained Ni-Cu lake sediment as well as till anomalies are associated with the Soissons intrusions.
  • Very little previous exploration in the area.

Partnership
