Property geology

The Laforce claims contains part of an elongate, east-west trending gabbroic intrusion approximately 4.6 km long and 0.15 km wide.  The gabbro body occurs near the northern margin of a 4.2 km wide dioritic plug (Figure 3).  The northern margin of the dioritic plug is cut by several northeast-southwest trending faults.

The main Laforce mineralization occurs within the western segment of the gabbro.  The mineralization is hosted within an amphibolitic body which is enveloped by porphyritic gabbro that grades into porphyritic diorite and gabbro.  The area is cut by lamprophyre and quartz-feldspar dykes

Mineralization

At the Laforce showing, Ni-Cu-PGE-bearing sulphides occur within brecciated and non-brecciated amphibolite. Sulphides comprise up to 15% of the unit and occur as 1-3 mm, blebs and veinlets of pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite, pyrite and trace millerite.  Sulphide mineralization identified in other parts of the property generally occur as trace, cubic pyrite in gabbro and pyroxenite.
