A Globally Significant Vanadium Project
The Lac Doré Vanadium property is located 27 kilometres east-southeast from the city of Chibougamau, in Eeyou Istchee James Bay Territory, Northern Québec. The 2019 drill program targeted the Company’s Lac Doré Vanadium prospect where historical drilling and surface channel sampling conducted between 1958 and 2013 have revealed over 2 kilometres long by 200 metres wide and open at depth corridor hosting multiple zones of vanadium-bearing vanadiferous (titano) magnetite “VTM” mineralization. The completed 2019 drill program was the largest conducted on the project since 1970. Assay results will target a resource statement and technical report in 2020. Lac Dore was a crown asset for over 50 years with various reports concluding exceptional recoveries and low impurities with pilot production of vanadium electrolyte tested in vanadium redox flow batteries by Sumitomo.
The summer-fall 2019 exploration program conducted at the Lac Doré Vanadium property was designed by the Company with the aid of mining industry consultants InnovExplo of Val-d’Or, Québec, and CSA Global of Vancouver, BC. The exploration program was managed by InnovExplo of Val-d’Or, Québec under the supervision of the Table Jamésienne de Concertation Minière (TJCM) of Chibougamau, Québec.
