The brownfield 215,000 hectare Surimeau District, south of the Cadillac Break, is well located amongst current and former producing mines, with several points of road access, hydro-electric power lines running through the property and rail lines nearby.
The Surimeau District Property hosts numerous areas of interest, both the sulphide nickel rich VMS targets such as the ~5km Victoria West prospect, which Renforth is currently focussed on, as well as the gold prospects. Both the gold and battery metal targets are supported by historic findings and Renforth’s follow up exploration.
Renforth is planning 16 drill holes in a 3,500m maiden drill program, expected to commence in March 2021. This program is designed to test magnetic highs associated with mapped intrusives in the vicinity of historical exploration work. The Victoria Target was last explored in the 1990’s by LAC Minerals, looking for gold. In addition to the presence of gold, which did not meet the criteria then used (in a much different gold price environment) for further development, LAC, and previous operators, determined that there was nickel, zinc and copper present, plus a few more minerals. Renforth’s initial fieldwork validates the presence of the mineralization, Renforth will now focus on determining the scope of the battery metals on the largely under-explored property, backed by our cash and securities on hand.
