St. Jovite Lump Graphite Project
Brébeuf SSE (St-Jovite Mines)
All information pertaining to mineral resources herewith presented are historical in nature and while relevant, the information was obtained before the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 reporting standards. No historical estimate should be relied upon until it can be confirmed by the Company.
The property is located 8.5 km south-south-east of the village of Brébeuf, in the Laurentian region, approximately 153 km northwest of Montreal. It is underlain by metasedimentary rocks of the Grenville Province which had been invaded by the igneous rocks of the Morin series. It includes the Brébeuf-SSE deposit which was mined sporadically for mica and apatite from 1954 to 1961.
It consists of a vein type deposit with most important pegmatitic vein measuring 30 m in length by 0.6 to 1.8 m in width.
The property is located some 4.5 km southeast of Brébeuf deposit, a graphitic occurrence located in marble and quartzite. Historical works on the Brébeuf deposit mention a graphite content of 33.82% from a graphitic band within the marble and a flaky and lump type mineralisation. This deposit is found at the contact zone between the Grenville and a granitic intrusive mass, where a wide zone of alteration was developed with secondary minerals derived from the sediments, such as wollastonite, scapolite and diopside.
Outcrops of pegmatites, syenogranites and leucogabbros were noted on a preliminary site visit on the Property. The presence of granitic and pegmatitic rock units warrant further investigation to find marbles or graphite-mineralised skarns.
