The new KE kimberlite area discovered
- New and distinct occurrence that is located roughly 450 m east of the Kelvin kimberlite.
- Defined by three drillholes that have confirmed a series of hypabyssal kimberlite sheets (HK) with a maximum HK intersect of 2.13 m, that appear to be new and distinct from the nearby Kelvin deposit.
- Further drilling of the KE kimberlite is currently planned for the 2023 exploration program.
Over 5000 m of exploration drilling
- 25 of 35 exploration drillholes intersected kimberlite.
- Eight volcaniclastic kimberlite intersections on the North Anomaly.
- 1291 line-km of airborne magnetics and electromagnetics.
- 189 line-km of high-resolution resistivity (ARRT) data.
- 30 line-km of ground magnetics.
- 3139 ground gravity and 161 bathymetry measurements.
- Historic HLEM and magnetics identified the KE kimberlite.
Kimberlite indicator minerals
- Over 600 strategic till samples processed and assessed from 2021.
- Over 300 follow-up till samples in 2022 confirming the 2021 sampling strategies.
- Positive KIM dispersals identified new areas for geophysics and drilling.
- Intersection of a hydrothermal breccia with quartz veining and sulfides, which remains under review.
- Glacial sediment geochemistry identified areas of interest.
- A new claim block was added after a detailed review of historical drill logs was conducted and determined that a drill hole was logged in the early 1990's as an intersection from 108 to 176 m of granite/quartz syenite with magnetite.
