HSP Highlights

The HSP nickel copper 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.

The project is in close proximity to maintained Quebec Hydro roads and 15km north of the new Romaine IV hydroelectric power facility. The project scores high on the sustainability charts for green energy potential.

Historical showings

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.

EGP: 0.71% Cu, 0.33% Ni, 0.04% Co, 109 ppb Au, 145 ppb Pd, 86 ppb Pt (average of 7 samples)
EM-A2: 0.38% Cu, 0.17% Ni, 0.09% Co (best of two samples)
Hamlet: 0.69% Cu, 0.55% Ni, 0.09% Co (average of 5 samples)
0.68% Cu, 0.39% Ni, 0.07% Co, 83 ppb Pt over 1.55 m



Opportunity

Exploration by Go Metals

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 used by Precision Geosurveys in combination with a tighter survey allowed Go Metals to identify conductors extending up to 250 m deep. The program highlighter six target areas with shallow conductors on the Property.

The 2021 ground program trenched and sampled the six targets and showed the conductors locally coincide with massive and semi-massive nickel and copper sulphides.
