The Strong Project consists of one Mineral Exploration Licenses totaling 6,140 hectares, located 26km north of Thompson, Manitoba.
The TNB compilation in Figure 2 of the TNB shows the area to be underlain by Archean, Ospwagan Group with some ultramfics. Strong shows a revised and more detailed geology interpreted from the VTEM magnetics and electromagnetics combined with a review of historical drill holes.
The project area was explored by a variety of companies in the 1950’s to the 1970’s which led to the discovery of the Mel deposit located immediately to the East of the Hunter property. Falconbridge, in JV with Crowflight Minerals Inc (Canickel Mining Ltd) was active on the Strong Property from 1998 to 2005. In 2007 Crowflight flew a VTEM survey that was processed in 2008 by Condor Consulting but there was no drill follow-up
Significant exploration targets have been defined based on a compilation of historical exploration. The VTEM survey completed in 2007 and re-processed in 2019 provides a revised geology. Combining this revised geology and the VTEM conductor picks and a 3D electro-magnetic inversion of the VTEM survey data has provided a series of targets ready to be drilled.
The Strong property has the potential for several deposits of the Thompson or Birchtree-type.
