Logan Property

Property Location

The Logan Property is located roughly 340 km north-northeast of Chibougamau, Québec, Canada, in the Baie James Area within NTS Map Sheets 033B14, centred at roughly 52°53.05N by 75°15.52W and covering an approximate area of 555 ha.

The Property can be accessed by either helicopter or float plane from the airport in Chibougamau which is serviced by commercial airlines. The nearest road access to the property is Highway 109 which is located 135 km west of the property. Additional mine road access is available to Eleonore Mine and Airstrip located approximately 60 km south of the property, where project staging can occur.

Property Description

The Property is located in the Frotet-Evans Greenstone Belt (FEGB) within the Opatica sub-province of the Superior Province in Quebec. Logan is situated in the easternmost domain of the FEGB, known as Frotet-Troilus, an area which has recently received increased exploration attention due to its increased regional economic development.

The regional geophysical magnetic anomaly is consistent with the trend and pattern of the geophysical anomaly identified by the 2021 magnetic gradient survey on the Property which are also consistent with Geophysical survey results completed in 2007 to 2008. The regional geological mapping suggests favourable contacts between gabbro – norite lithologies and biotite migmatites; these contacts are coincident with partly mapped granitic pegmatites which have potential for REE mineralization and follow the disposition of the magnetic anomaly.

Li-Cs-Ta Pegmatite Style Deposits

 

The Property is believed to have a favourable geological setting for Li-Cs-Ta Pegmatite style deposits. The five REE mineral showings occur along a contact with gabbro – norite diabase to the north, and biotite migmatite paragneiss to the south. The contract oriented approximately 300° to 120°. Mineralization is associated with granitic pegmatite dyke swarms which follow along the foliation of the paragneiss between 290° and 325° with a weak dip to the north of 20° to 40°. During the 2008 season 280 samples were collected, of which, 20 samples contained elevated REE. Sample-252 returned the highest concentration of REE, with a TREO value of 13.96%.

Logan History

Research along the Logan Ree property began in 1978, as Societe de Developpement de la Baie James, had administered 22 stream sediment samples. Of the twenty-two samples that had been collected in the immediate region of the anomaly, only one anomalous value (Marchand, 1978). From their findings, it was determined that the geochemistry of the lake indicated no anomalies would be present in neighboring lakes (Marchand, 1978). And the airborne radiometry survey conducted in 1975, did not indicate any anomalies, although it is possible this could be due to overburden upon the surface (Marchand, 1978).

Following this research, activity on the Logan Ree property wouldn’t resume until 2008 when Dios Exploration Inc. and Resources Sirois would execute a geological survey on the Upinor property. A total of 31 samples were collected for Uranium analysis, a majority of which returned as such in the Kawipapiskasi Block (Lalancette, J., & Girard, R., 2008). 29 samples had been collected from this area, with scintillometer readings varying from 5,000 cps to 35,000 cps (Lalancette, J., & Girard, R., 2008). Of these 29 samples from the Kawipapiskasi block, nine had shown grades in U3O8 greater than 0.1%, and an additional nine showing grades between 0.05% to just below 0.1%. (Lalancette, J., & Girard, R., 2008). Additionally, because of the fact that Uranium rich samples had also been rich in Lead, it can be inferred that this lead is of radiogenic origin (Lalancette, J., & Girard, R., 2008). In effect, the secular balance of the chain of disintegration would not be not broken, and so, Uranium would be the primary mineralization, and most likely magmatic. (Lalancette, J., & Girard, R., 2008)

In the following year, Dios Exploration Inc. and Resources Sirois expanded upon the Upinor project, by conducting further geological surveys (St. Hilaire, 2009). In 2007 – 2008 Geo Data Solutions (GDS) on behalf of Dios Exploration Inc (DIOS), completed a high-resolution Airborne Magnetic and Gamma-ray Spectrometric (AGS) survey on 3 blocks (West, North and South) located in the James Bay area, Northern Quebec. Traverse lines were oriented North-West with a spacing of 100 metres while control-lines were oriented East-West with a spacing of 1 000 metres. The survey was flown with a mean ground clearance of 43.5 metres, for a total of 3,712 line-km flown over three blocks in the greater Logan area. The Unipor South block covers in part the current Logan claims. A total of 437 line-km were flown over the grid (See figures 6.1 and 6.2 below).

Through their investigation they had been able to determine Potassium % (colour interval), equivalent Uranium ppm (colour interval), equivalent Thorium ppm (colour interval), Total Count (colour interval), Ratio et the eqU/eqTh, Ratio of the K/eqTh, shaded magnetic Total Field (colour interval), shaded magnetic first vertical derivative (colour interval) (St. Hilaire, 2009).

In 2009, they would conduct geological mapping on the Upinor property, including collection of 298 rock samples, and analyzed for Uranium. Additionally, six more samples were collected and analyzed for gold and base metals. The results of the preliminary groundwork on the Upinor North Project shows 66 surface samples in excess of 0.050% U3O8, of which 31 were in excess of 0.1% U3O8 (St. Hilaire, 2009). These occurrences are predominantly found on targets A1, A5, and A6(St. Hilaire, 2009). Results of the preliminary groundwork on the Upinor South Project have had less exploration work carried out compared to the Northern portion. The lack of exploration work makes it more difficult to evaluate. The best uranium values were located on target C2 (St. Hilaire, 2009). The values are isolated and non-continuous (St. Hilaire, 2009). The area with the highest radiometric anomalies on target A3 and of the 10 samples collected, the best Uranium value returned was 0.038% (Tremblay, P., Lalancette, J., Girard, R., 2009).
