The Angliers Project

Located in the Témiscamingue region of western Quebec, the Angliers project represents a highly under explored region of the Baby volcanic group of the Belleterre-Angliers greenstone belt, historically known to host Ni-Cu-PGE, Au, Cu, Mo, Zn, and diamond mineralization.

Project Targets

A machine-learning Mineral Potential Index (MPI) mapping, analysis and synthesis of data was recently performed by 1413336 B.C. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Energy Metals. The results of the work highlighted four areas of interest. Observations resulted in a good correlation with the segmentation results associated with potential ultramafic bodies.

There was also a strong spatial relationship between high MPI values and existing nickel-mineralized rock samples, especially in Area 4. The MPI mapping results represent a solid exploration tool for the search for Ni, Co, Cu and PGE mineralization and that future ground exploration campaigns on the project should take this into account, with the support of airborne electromagnetic surveys.

Target 1

Area 4

MPI mapping, airborne surveys and surface rock sampling highlighted a zone of potential ultramafic rocks with elevated nickel mineralization in surface rocks samples distributed over 6 kilometers strike length. Anomalous nickel values within the surface rock samples up to 2290 ppm. This six-kilometres-long magnetic anomalous trend is very intriguing as an exploration target area for sulphide Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization.

Target 2

Area 1

MPI mapping and airborne surveys highlighted a zone of potential ultramafic rocks that are host to known mineralization to the east of the property. Based on the magnetic response, these host rocks appear to extend westward onto the Angliers property beneath deeper overburden cover.

Project Location

The Angliers Project is located within the Angliers and Belleterre townships in the Témiscamingue region of western Quebec, near the Ontario border. The town of Notre-Dame-du-Nord lies at the northwestern end of the claim block and Laverlochère at the southern end. Access is facilitated by paved highways and gravel roads. Regionally, Ville-Marie is the largest agglomeration and offers all the resources to support an exploration program.

Project Target

The Angliers project is prospective for several types of base and battery metal sulphide mineralization, including:

  1. Massive sulfide Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization
  2. Disseminated Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization
  3. Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide

Land Status

The property consists of 464 active claims, 100% owned presently by 1413336 B.C. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Energy Metals. The claims cover an area of 26,417.4 hectares. All the claims were staked by prior owner Marster Metals Incorporated and have been sold outright 100% to 1413336 B.C. Ltd, free and clear of all liens, charges, encumbrances, and adverse interests, except for a 2.5% net smelter revenues royalty

Geology and Mineralization

The project is located within the Baby volcanic group of the Belleterre – Angliers belt. Stratigraphically, this group is essentially composed at the base of komatiites, komatiitic basalts, iron formation, tholeiitic basalts and, at the top, intermediate to felsic calc-alkaline volcanic rocks as well as volcaniclastic sedimentary rocks.

Komatiitic ultramafic flow rocks and differentiated gabbro rocks form part of the Archean volcanic stratigraphy of the Baby Group, in a regional setting thought to be a mantle plume (MB 2020-12 published by the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests geologists Richer-Lafleche, Moorhead and Goutier). Mantle plume areas are known to localize a variety of base metal deposits from magmatic nickel–copper to polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. The plume area tapped mantle-derived magmas with “primitive” trace element geochemical signatures in mafic-ultramafic rocks. Primitive rock chemistry is documented in the MB2020-12 report. Komatiites (ultramafic lava flows) and magnesium-rich gabbroic rocks are important rock types for the formation of the Kambalda (Australia) district type of deposit nickel deposits. The same genetic mode may apply at the Angliers project.

Upcoming Exploration Program

Previous work completed on the property confirms the mineral potential is amply sufficient to propose a 2-phase exploration program, as described below.  Phase 1 (A-C) and Phase 2 (A-B) are planned for fall 2024. 

Phase 1:

  • Re-processing, Analysis and Interpretation of the Magnetic and Spectrometric data collected in 2023, covering the entire property
  • Confrontation of this geophysical interpretation with a geoscientific analysis of historical data;
  • Selection of the best exploration targets.

Phase 2: Ground follow-up on the exploration targets selected in Phase 1;

  • Prospecting program: geological/structural mapping, rock sampling, visit historic trenches and stripped bedrock areas.
  • Selection of the best exploration targets for ground geophysical surveys (induced polarization and/or electromagnetic horizontal loops MaxMin surveys) to detect the presence of massive or disseminated mineralization.
  • Drilling program on coinciding structural, geophysical and geological targets.
