The Soissons Ni-Cu-Co project is located approximately 150 kilometers south-east of Kuujjuaq, Quebec, and 250 kilometers west of the Voisey’s Bay mine, Labrador.
175 claims covering approximately 82 square kilometers.
Covers a series of Ni-Cu-Co showings associated with two distinct troctolite to olivine-bearing gabbronorites (Soissons intrusive suite).
Recent geochronological work by the Geological survey of Canada recently returned an age of 1,311±1.1 Ma for the host troctolite/gabbronorite intrusions, close to the age of the Voisey’s Bay troctolite (1,332.7±1 Ma), host to the world-class Ni-Cu-Co Voisey’s Bay deposit. The Soissons intrusions also belong to the Nain plutonic suite (1,330 to 1,290 Ma).
Previous exploration in 2001-2002 revealed the following Ni-Cu-Co grades in grab samples:
