The Abigail property is located in the north-eastern part of the Superior Province, which itself lies in the heart of the Canadian Shield. The Superior Province extends from Manitoba to Quebec, and is mainly made up of Archean rocks. The general metamorphism is at the greenschist facies, except in the vicinity of intrusive bodies, where it can go to the amphibolite-to-granulite facies.
The Abigail property is located in a gneissic formation between the Lac des Montagnes volcano-sedimentary belt and the Champion Lake granitoids. The geological maps by Valiquette reveal the presence of basalt and/or amphibolite remnants in a gneissic formation intruded by granites.
Recent work has been performed by Golden Goose Resources outlined in Nisk-1 deposit, approximately 6.5 km to the SE of the Abigail Property. NI-43-101 compliant resources were evaluated by RSW, and are shown in the table below. This deposit is now owed by Nemaska Exploration, who bought Golden Goose’s interest in all its claims in the James Bay area in 2009. In May 2010, Nemaska reported NI-43-101 resoucres estimated by Geostat System International on the Whabouchi property; this deposit contains Li2O and BeO and is located 1.5 km to the W of the Abigail property.
The property is on strike with the spodumene-bearing pegmatite located on the Whabouchi property held by Nemaska Exploration Inc. The Abigail property is underlain by the same gneissic formation that hosts the Lac Arques SW pegmatite showings with 1,189 ppm Th and 563 ppm U3O8. Magmatic NI-Cu type deposit associated with ultramafic intrusions may also be found. The Whabouchi spodumene-bearing pegmatite is located in a low magnetic anomaly on the flank of a medium magnetic high. A high magnetic anomaly located about 1 km north of the Whabouchi pegmatite can be interpreted as an ultramafic intrusion. An airborne survey over the Abigail property could lead to the discovery of the same magnetic signature and help locate pegmatite and ultramafic intrusions of the Whabouchi and Nisk-1 type.
The Abigail property is easily accessible which greatly enhances the economics of the project, as “Route du Nord” crosses the south part of the property. This road originates in the town of Chibougamou, approximately 280 km to the SSE, and leads to the village of Nemaska and the Route de la Baie-James. A Hydro-Quebec powerline has been built along the “Route du Nord” in the region of the Abigail property, and the Nemiscau airport is located 20 km west of the property, serviced by Air Creebec and chartered flights. The village of Nemaska and the Relais Routier CCDC located respectively 35 and 15 km to the west of the Abigail property may be used to house workers and service the property. In addition, the Abigail property is covered by the cellular networks.
