Pigeon River Project
The Pigeon River property is situated in Proterozoic terrane within the Mid-Continent Rift. Rock types consist of diabase sills, sediments and intermediate to mafic intrusions. In recent years, economic deposits of nickel-copper and PGE’s have been discovered south and northeast of the property . A VTEM survey over the eastern half of the property identified numerous conductors associated with linear magnetic features. These conductors may reflect sulphide mineralization associated with mafic or ultramafic intrusions. Three conductors were drill-tested in May and June of 2010 by the previous owners of the property, Pele Mountain Resources . Two of the conductors proved to be due to sedimentary pyrrhotite within Rove Formation siltstone and mudstone. The third conductor was not fully explained, but may be due to sedimentary pyrrhotite intersected near the bottom of the hole. The three diamond drill holes totaling 605 meters intersected sediments of the Proterozoic Rove Formation, some containing sulphide and intruded by several diabase sills.
