Property Teslo

The Teslo project is comprised of a dozen inactive past producing old quarries that contain high grade industrial minerals such as mica-phlogopite (which is used among other things, in the production of electric and electronic devices, paints and roof shingles), quartz (which is used, among other things, in the production of glass, metallurgic silicium for chemical industries, and solar panels) and feldspar (which is used, among other things, in the production of dental products, ceramics and abrasives).

Many of the old quarries found on the Teslo Project were in commercial production for many years, the largest being the Derry quarry which was reported to have produced up to 175,000 imperial tons of quality potassic feldspar during the period from 1920 to 1956 (reference: Davis, N. B. (1958) - Feldspar in Canada, Historical. MRN - Québec, GM 35603, 18 pages). Over the years, the feldspar produced at the Derry quarry became the standard potash feldspar used in American ceramic plants, and served as a reference used by the ceramics schools. The feldspar from the Derry quarry was also used for the production of dental ceramics.

The reader must be aware that the above information has been primarily obtained from mining inspectors and other civil servants of the Natural Resources Ministry of Québec. Much of this historical information is believed to be reliable, but is not compliant with the requirements of National Instrument 43 101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and has not been verified by Fieldex staff. Therefore it should be viewed as uncertain until further exploration has been carried out.
