Quebec Property

QUEBEC

The Quebec project is comprised of 2 joint ventures. Metalex has a 75% contributing interest in various claims for the exploration of diamonds and a 79% contributing interest in various claims for the exploration of gold and base metals.

TARGET RATIONALE

  • One of the deepest parts of the lithosphere
  • Diamond fertile Superior Archaean Craton approximately midway between 2 commercial grade deposits (Victor and Renard)
  • Kimberlite discovered at Wemindji
  • Government aeromagnetics available
  • Quebec is ranked the 6th in the world for mining investment (Fraser Institute 2020)

RESULTS

  • Over 8,000 heavy mineral samples collected to assess over 250,000 km2 
  • Samples analyzed for diamond indicator minerals as well as base and precious metals
  • 2 claim blocks staked for diamonds
  • 3 claim blocks staked for gold
    • One of these areas also contains highly anomalous scandium
  • 46 other anomalous gold areas discovered

FUTURE WORK

  • Geophysical and geochemical surveys along with prospecting, geological mapping and rock sampling are planned for the current claim blocks to locate the bedrock mineralization
  • Additional geochemical surveys will be undertaken on the additional 46 anomalous gold areas to define the bedrock source areas for staking
  • This work is designed to allow drill testing the bedrock sources
