Saguenay Nickel Project


  • The Saguenay Nickel Project is located approximately 10 km south of the town of Saguenay, Quebec. 
  • The property is made up of 5 claims totalling 286.32 ha.

Property Geology

  • The Saguenay Gneiss Complex has abundant mafic and ultramafic rocks and anorthosites, which are commonly associated with Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide deposits (e.g., Voisey’s Bay, Labrador; Thompson, Manitoba).  
  • The property is underlain by mafic to ultramafic rocks enclosed in the Saguenay gneissic complex.  
  • The presence of ore grade Ni-Cu samples at surface and in drill core on this property, and the absence of modern exploration is highly encouraging.  
  • A historic grab sample returned up to 3.41% Ni, 1.14% Cu, 1.2 ppm Ag and 0.13% Co.  

Drill Program History

In 1959, 4 out of 7 holes drilled, on Victory ground intersected gabbroic and peridotite rocks, hole number 4 returned 4 feet of 1.06% Nickel, and 0.21% copper, hole # 3intersected 10 feet averaging 0.49% Nickel and 0.03% copper, hole # 2 intersected 13 feet averaging 0.22% Nickel and 0.04% copper, and a fourth hole, the number 1 intersected 12 feet averaging 0.23% nickel and 0.06% copper and 3 feet averaging 0.38% nickel and 0.11% copper.

The four holes were drilled northwards to the outcrop area, with hole 4 intersecting zone as mapped in the historical report GM 08808.
