The Little Trout property consists of 46 claim units comprising approximately 776 hectares of highly prospective geology for cobalt and copper mineralization. The claims are contiguous with Cobalt Power’s Canadian Cobalt project.
The Little Trout property was originally staked to cover the source area of a cluster of 3 significant cobalt and copper lake sediment anomalies derived from a 2004 Ontario Geological Survey sampling program.
The geochemical signature of the anomalies differs from much of the Cobalt Ontario camp in that the anomalous cobalt is coupled with copper, in contrast with the typical Co-Ag-As signature of the historical mining camp. This is suggestive of sediment-hosted copper-cobalt mineralization.
The Company is fully funded for the 2018 exploration season and plans are underway for an aggressive exploration program on its new Little Trout property.
The Little Trout property is located approximately 2.5 km southwest of the historic town of Silver Centre and approximately 27 km south of the town of Cobalt, Ontario. The property is accessible by forestry roads followed by 2 km of ATV trails.
The Little Trout property lies within the Huronian Basin and is almost entirely underlain by gently dipping sedimentary rocks belonging to the Lorrain Formation, consisting of quartzites, feldspathic quartzites, and arkose. A Nipissinggabbroic intrusion crosses the NW corner of the property.
Lake sediment samples taken by the Ontario Geological Survey in 2004 returned assay values as high as 123 ppm Co and 308 ppm Cu. The metal suite of the lake anomalies is atypical of the Co- Ag-As signature of Cobalt and Silver Centre mineralization, which is commonly hosted by Nipissing diabase dikes. The Co-Cu signature suggests the presence of another style of mineralization including possibly sediment-hosted Cu-Co.
Very little historical exploration work has been completed on the Little Trout property as the geological setting is unconventional for silver-cobalt mineralization that was historically exploited in the Cobalt camp. A silver-copper showing (Friday Creek) hosted by Nipissing diabase in contact with Lorrain quartzites occurs approximately 3 km to the west of Little Trout.
