The HSP nickel copper PGE project is located 130 km north of Havre-Saint-Pierre in Quebec. The 150 km2 property is located within the Grenvillian Havre-Saint-Pierre Anorthosite Complex. The project is in close proximity to maintained Quebec Hydro roads and 15km north of the new Romaine IV hydroelectric power facility.
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 original conductors were examined with ground follow-ups in the late 90s. Massive sulphide mineralization was discovered, yielding grab samples with good grades of copper and nickel and elevated platinum, palladium, cobalt and gold values.
After staking the project in early 2019, the historical Aerodat data was reprocessed with the help of Southern Geoscience to assess whether all known conductors were followed up. The reprocessing highlighted several new geophysical anomalies.
In October 2019 Go Metals flew a tighter-spaced time-domain EM survey with Precision Geosurveys. The more powerful AirTEM system in combination with a higher resolution survey allowed Go Metals to identify conductors extending up to 250 m deep. The program highlighted six target areas with shallow conductors on the Property.
A 2021 ground program trenched and sampled all six targets and showed the conductors locally coincide with massive and semi-massive nickel and copper sulphides.
