The company’s 100% owned property is located approximately 100 km south of Kugluktuk in Nunavut.

Speers Lake Pd/Pt/Au/Cu/Ni Project – Nunavut

The company’s Speers Lake Project covers known Copper, Nickel, Palladium, Platinum and Gold mineralization within or along the contact of the Proterozoic Layered Muskox Ultramafic Intrusive (LMUI) in western Nunavut.

The region has received only sporadic, systematic exploration since its first discovery and exploration by Inco in the late 1950’s.  Additional systematic exploration was not conducted again until the 1980’s and in 1999 to 2007. Several geochemical, geophysical, geological mapping and limited diamond drilling had been undertaken on the property with these studies being able to define at least two sulphide pulses associated with the emplacement of the LMUI. These pulses both contain high nickel and copper concentrations with associated precious metals.  Listed below are some of the more significant precious and base metal assay results from historical geochemical rock sampling and diamond drilling.
