Graal

Strategic Move to add Discoveries

The Graal-Nourricier-Lac Suzanne property (Graal) is one of the properties in Northern Quebec that have a strong potential to host a variety of electric vehicle (EV) metals including nickel, copper and cobalt. The properties were staked or acquired outright or via option agreements in 2020 and 2021 as part of a strategic move to add to the company’s current cobalt mineralization discoveries in the Cobalt Camp and as an expedient approach to the increasing demand for EV battery metals.

Strategy

The Company has conducted a 15,000m drill program at Graal, targeting the Bouguer Anomaly. The company is seeking to identify significant amounts of nickel-copper-sulphide mineralization at the base of the magmatic chamber.
Early-stage drill results have been excellent. Initial drilling intersected massive sulphides with assays for the first three drill holes indicating up to 2.08% nickel and 3.75% copper. Lab results are still pending.

History

Historical exploration on the property encountered numerous encouraging showings of nickel, copper and cobalt.
However, the property was sparsely explored, with up to 800m drill hole spacing or more, and the deepest hole investigated at merely a 100m vertical depth, leaving a lot of ground to investigate more thoroughly.

Geology

The Graal property, located in the Lac St-Jean region southeast of the Lac a Paul Arianne Phosphate deposit and 160 km north-northeast of the city of Saguenay, comprises 87 owned and 23 optioned claims covering 6,111 hectares.
An airborne geophysical (gravity and magnetic) survey in early 2021 identified Graal as the most geologically prospective of the five properties surveyed.
