Borden Conglomerate
Borden
()
Deformed conglomerate with various elongated clasts of 5-20cm in diameter.

Buffalo-Ankerite
Tisdale
(Gold)
A showing of basalt was visited on the site in order to confirm lithogeochemical data collected back in the 70's.

Kryst Fragmental outcrop
Tisdale
()
The outcrop was visited in order to gather samples of felsic metavolcanics for the preparation of a prospecting course.

Lac de Coppell
Lowther
(Lithium)
White pegmatite was encountered in the area of Lac de Coppell, and south west of it. The township of Lowther is known for the presence of a lithium bearing pegmatite south of Cuckoo Lake. Samples were collected and sent to the assay laboratory.

Linekar
Ivanhoe
(Silver, Titanium)
The area was visited in order to confirm the data found in an assessment file. The trenches were out of reach, and only a quartz monzonite was encountered and sampled.

NE Fontaine's Landing
Bannerman, Hanlan
(Beryl)
Several outcrops were visited in that area. The presence of white pegmatite is strongly suspected. Samples were collected and sent to the assay laboratory.

Polaris
Mountjoy
(Gold)
A shaft was dug there back in the 30-40's, but it could not be found. Beautiful outcrop of brownish pillow basalts. No quartz vein appearing on the surface.

Sangster
Sangster
(Lithium)
White pegmatite intrusive of 20cm of thickness was observed in the field. A sample was taken and sent for assay, as well as a sample of the host rock: a biotite-amphibole schist.

Smooth Rock Falls Bridge
Kendrey
()
The outcrop is a migmatized felsic to intermediate metasediment with amphibolite xenoliths.

Strickland Pegmatite
Haggart
(Apatite, Rare Earth Elements)
The outcrop shows a white granitic pegmatite. On the western edge of the pegmatite, some apatite crystals were perceived.

West of Pearl Lake
Tisdale
(Gold)
Looking for an accessible outcrop of the Pearl Lake porphyry. No success. However, the zone of interest sits on the old railway, surrounded by fenced off stopes.
Agrium
Agrium Mine
Cargill
(Apatite, Rare Earth Elements)
Tailings were sampled at various location in order to test its REE contents.
Alain Vallée
Florence Lake
Blount
()
The property is underlain by a fine grained paragneiss greyish on surface. The outcrop shows some pegmatitic phases located in broken-coarse-grained veins. Outcrops are very scarce.
Avalon Advanced Materials Inc.
Shawmere Anorthosite
Warren
(Anorthosite)
The rock is a coarse-grained anorthosite. The road leading to it is a little overgrown.
Bonterra Resources Inc.
Cheminis Mine
McVittie
(Gold)
Old drill holes and outcrops were inspected to understand the actual status of exploration and geology of the area.
Bonterra Resources Inc.
Fernland
McVittie
(Gold)
Old drill holes and outcrops were inspected to understand the actual status of exploration and geology of the area.
Eric Labelle
Lackner Complex
Lackner, McNaught
(Apatite, Rare Earth Elements, Uranium, Niobium)
Various areas of the Lackner Complex were visited, although outcrops were really scarce. Carbonatite and lamprophyre were observed.
International Explorers and Prospectors Inc.
Genex Mine
Godfrey
(Base Metals)
The site was visited to get some samples from a typical VMS deposit. Old sample locations were rediscovered in the process.
Marc Brazeau
Quartz Lake
Fripp
(Base Metals)
The area was visited to find out the possibility of an outlier of the fossiliferous limestone paleozoic cover present in the James Bay Lowlands. No actual evidence of an outlier was found, but boulders and slabs of the Paleozoic were present in the overbu
Northern Sun Mining Corp.
Groves
Groves
(Nickel, Copper)
Core from the Groves property was examined.
Sarissa Resources Inc.
Nemegosenda
Chewett
(Niobium, Apatite, Rare Earth Elements)
The South Trench was accessed, although no actual bedrock was sampled.
