DAB PROJECT – Quebec Canada

The DAB property consists of 128 contiguous mineral claims which cover 6,813.72 hectares (68.14km2) of the north shore area of Quebec, which is part of the Grenville Geological Province. The Grenville Province extends for more than 2,000 kilometres in length and skirts the North Shore of the St-Lawrence River. Its width varies from 300 kilometers to 600 kilometers and forms the south east segment of the Canadian Shield.

The Archean rocks of the Superior Province and the Proterozoic rocks of the Otish Basin are separated from the Grenville Province by the Grenville Front. The tectonic fabric of the Grenville is predominantly northwest-southwest trending. The Grenville consists of gneiss domes and basins with complex and irregular structural patterns, intrusive rocks of variable composition, from gabbros to alkaline rocks.

The lithologies are divided into three major units: the gneissic and intrusive rocks of varied composition of the Hulot Complex, intrusive rocks that include the east-west trending La Blache Anorthosite Complex, and late crosscutting gabbronorites, gabbros, diabasic gabbros, mangerites, granites and pegmatites The La Blache Anorthosite Complex is an almost ellipsoid batholith of 35 kilometers by 20 kilometers within intrusive rocks that extends for 100 kilometers by up to 20 kilometers.

The anorthosites are cut by granites and pegmatites varying from a few centimetres to several meters of multiple orientations.

 

DAB Property Highlights

Geological Setting and Mineralization

Regional Geology and Mineralization

The DAB property is located in the North Shore region of Quebec, part of the Grenville Geological Province. The Grenville extends for more than 2,000 km in length and skirts the North Shore of the St-Lawrence River. Its width varies from 300 km to 600 km and forms the south east segment of the Canadian Shield. The Archean rocks of the Superior Province and the Proterozoic rocks of the Otish Basin are separated from the Grenville Province by the Grenville Front. The tectonic fabric of the Grenville is predominantly northwest-southwest trending.

Local Geology

The Grenville consists of gneiss domes and basins with complex and irregular structural patterns, intrusive rocks of variable composition, from gabbro to alkaline rocks. The lithologies are divided into three major units: the gneissic and intrusive rocks of varied composition of the Hulot Complex, intrusive rocks that include the east-west trending La Blache Anorthosite Complex, and late cross-cutting gabbronorites, gabbros, diabase, mangerites, granites and pegmatites. La Blache Anorthosite Complex is an almost ellipsoid batholith of 35 km by 20 km within intrusive rocks that extends for 100 km by up to 20 km. The mineralization on the property is composed of veins, dykes, lenses and tubular bodies of massive titaniferous magnetite linked to anorthosites.

 

Geochemistry

The 2019 sampling program clearly identified 2 areas with strong mineralization. The first area being the Farrell-Mason, which accounts for the bulk of the strong results featured in table 1 and was the focus of the channel sampling conducted. Based on the results of this program, the previous work appears to be reliable and consistent.

Farrell-Mason

The Farrell-Mason showing is the most advanced showing on the property. This showing is defined by multiple mineralized outcrops. These outcrops are coincident with a magnetic anomaly along a mineralized trend which contains multiple lenses; Farrell-Taylor, Herieux-Ouest, Hervieux-Est and Schmoo Lake (east to west from Farrell-Mason). Significant intercepts from the historic drilling are provided in table 2. Part of the 2018 exploration campaign included trenching at the showing, which yielded consistent, confirmatory, anomalous mineralization. Surface prospecting identified an additional mineralized area 1km south of the main showing. The showing consists of multiple outcrops within a 150m area. Channel sample highlights are provided in table 3.

Farrell-Leduc

This area is denoted by a Magnetic anomaly and some historic drilling on the edge of the claims in this area. Prospecting during the 2018 surface program, surface grab samples contained 0.54% and 0.51% V2O5 in grab and float samples respectively.
