The HSP nickel PGE project is located roughly 120 km north of Havre-Saint-Pierre in Quebec. The Property is located within the Grenvillian Havre-Saint-Pierre Anorthosite Complex and comprises 104 claims over 58 km2.
Nickel and platinum group elements were first discovered after an Aerodat survey in 1995. This first-pass EM survey revealed several conductors on the property. Three of the conductors were examined with ground follow-up. Massive sulphide mineralization was discovered, yielding grab samples with good grades of copper and nickel and elevated platinum, palladium, cobalt and gold values. Despite this initial exploration success, no further exploration was recorded on the claims.
Go Metals realized this was an opportunity to acquire an exciting grassroots nickel PGE claim with known mineralization. The old Aerodat data was reprocessed by Southern Geoscience in April 2019 to assess whether all known conductors were followed up. The reprocessing highlighted several new geophysical anomalies that had never been followed up. Based on these geophysical anomalies, Go Metals increased the size of their land package more than twofold.
In October 2019 Go Metals flew a tighter-spaced time-domain EM survey with Precision Geosurveys. The more powerful system by Precision Geosurveys in combination with a tighter survey allows Go Metals to identify conductors to up to 250 m deep and has highlighter over 6 areas with shallow conductors on the Property.
These conductors locally coincide with massive sulphide nickel-copper-PGE mineralization. The new, as well as the deeper, conductors likely also represent massive sulphide mineralization. Go Metals is planning a ground follow-up program in 2020.
