Our company focuses its activities on the search for gold and base metals within carefully selected regions of Québec and Ontario.
We know the areas that we are focused on very well, recognizing the unparalleled combination of accessibility, exploration and mining expertise, legal and tenure certainty, mining culture combined with world class exploration potential demonstrated to this day after over 100 years of continuous success including our own.
The Blakelock Property is located in north-eastern Ontario, 25 kilometres west of the Québec-Ontario border and approximately 150 and 40 kilometres northeast and north of Timmins and Kirkland Lake Ontario. The road servicing the Detour Lake Mine passes a few kilometres northwest of the property boundary. Geologically it is within the north-central part of the world-renowned Abitibi greenstone belt, featuring the Mattagami, Selbaie, Joutel and Casa Berardi mining camps, the latter which is 40 kilometres east along trend and operated by Hecla Mining Co.
Blakelock covers 15 kilometres of highly prospective rocks within which a series of overburden covered gold occurrences have been discovered by previous operators while drill testing gold in till anomalies. This project reminds us of a very similar exploration opportunity we took back in the early 90’s which resulted in the discovery of the West Timmins and Thunder Creek gold deposits along trend from the Timmins Mining Camp and currently being mined by Tahoe Resources Inc.
Our Radisson Property is located in the northwest part of the highly prospective Eeyou Istchee-James Bay region of Québec near the village of Radisson. Our attention was drawn to this opportunity in 2012, to be part of a new and developing mining camp and we regard this as an exciting opportunity similar to what Timmins was over 100 years ago.
The region hosts the Eleonore gold deposit discovered in 2004 by Virginia Gold Mines and currently operated by Goldcorp (Newmont) since 2014, but also several newly discovered advanced gold prospects being actively worked by numerous companies. Our work has successfully demonstrated the Radisson Property is host to significant surface gold and base metal mineralization discovered by basic prospecting. We also believe there is copper-nickel PGE potential.
