The 2459 ha. Duval Property is located approximately 300 km north of Chibougamau, Quebec, Canada. It is contiguous and on trend with Nemaska Lithium Inc.'s 27.3 M tonne proven + probable Whabouchi Deposit.
The Route du Nord provides year round, all-weather access to the area. The Nemiscau road-house/camp offers food, housing, and light and heavy machinery maintenance services less than 15 km from the property.
The Nemiscau airport, serviced daily by Air Creebec is located 18 km west of the property and two Hydro-Québec electricity transformation plants are located within 20 km of either side.
geology & Mineralization
Historic exploration on the Duval property was focused on Ni-Cu-Co-Au-PGE targets, hosted within an ultramafic dyke on the property.
In light of recent developments on the adjoining Whabouchi property, exploration has shifted focus toward the potential continuation of the lithium-bearing pegmatites onto the Duval property.
Recent prospecting has identified numerous pegmatite intrusions on Duval, similar to those which host lithium mineralization at Whabouchi.
The Duval Property has the potential to host numerous NE-SW striking LCT-type (lithium-cesium-tantalum) pegmatites, given the favourable geology along strike from the adjacent Whabouchi Deposit.
The presence of an ultramafic dyke hosting historical intersections of significant Ni-Cu-Co-Au-PGE, adds to the potential for multiple types of mineralization to be discovered on the Property.
Enforcer is currently reviewing the exploration results from the Phase 1 exploration prospecting program on the Duval Property, which consisted of a soil grid and outcrop sampling program. In order to accurately assess these results, the Company has entered into an extension agreement with Critical Elements Corporation, providing for a deferral of the first-year exploration expenditures until August 31, 2017. Except as provided in the new agreement, all other terms and conditions of the Option Agreement remain unchanged.
For details of the Original Agreement, please refer to the February 1, 2017 press release.
