  • Overview

    The author was contracted by Mr. Doug Thibault and Mr. Basil Smith of

    Thunder Bay, Ontario to supervise the re-establishment of a grid over their

    Sim Lake prospect and a manual stripping program to reveal the nature of the

    occurrence. A proton magnetometer survey was also conducted over the

    showing in order to enhance the previous survey which was run in 2000.

    Work on the property has been limited to what Mr.Thibault and Mr. Smith

    have done since acquiring the property in 1996. Before this time another local

    prospector, Bill Miron, owned the property and created a number of trenches

    around Line 3+00 W . There hasn't been any work recorded on the property

    before Mr. Thibault and Mr. Smith acquired it in 1996.

    To date the property shows excellent potential for a low grade - high tonnage

    Ni - Copper type of deposit and is ready to advance into the next phase of

    exploration.

    A sever windstorm in the summer of 2000 effectively wiped out the initial grid

    over the property. A new grid with 50 meter lines was established over what

    was considered the important areas of the grid.

    Manual stripping over the main showing was carried out to further expose its

    character.

    A new Proton Magnetometer at 50 meter line intervals was conducted in order

    to further define the boundaries of the intrusive.

  • Introduction

    During the summer of 2004, prospectors Doug Thibault and Basil Smith of

    Thunder Bay, contracted the author to supervise a the establishment of a new

    grid and review the proton magnetometer data that was collected.

    The property is a low grade, high tonnage Copper-Nickel-Cobalt prospect

    which has had a number of surveys conducted over it. The purpose of this

    program was to re-establish the grid at 50 meter line spacing and run a

    detailed survey in order to better define the boundaries of the main showing

    and to better outline the extent of the western intrusive.

    Location and Access

    The property is located approximately 110 kilometers (68 miles) northeast of

    the village of Armstrong, which in turn is approximately 280 kilometers due

    north of the City of Thunder Bay along Highway 527. It is also located in the

    Mining District of Thunder Bay centered at UTM coordinates 416900E l

    5659700 N (NTS 52-P-2) (Latitude 51o 12' N and Longitude 88011' W and can

    be found on the Sim Lake Area Claim Sheet (G-0400)

    Float-equipped aircraft provides access to the property in the summer out of

    Armstrong or Nakina and snow machine in the winter off of the Buchanan

    Forest Products logging road west of Nakina.

    Topography

    The property is typical of northwestern Ontario boreal forest with low rolling

    areas of outcrop surrounded by black spruce swamp. Cliffs and ridges are

    found on the northern section of the property where a line of granitic gneiss's

    and pegmatite's outcrop. Vegetation is generally large black spruce, poplar,

    and alders in the swamp with a under growth of moss and light moose maple.

    The area has unfortunately has undergone a severe wind storm in the fall of

    2000 and as a result 30 to 400Xo of the large black spruce have been blown

    down making travel across the claim group extremely difficult.

  • Tenure

    Mr. Doug Thibault and Basil Smith of Thunder Bay, Ontario own the

    unpatented mineral claims TB 1231961 and adjacent TB 1216877. All work

    was preformed on the TB 1231961 claim.

    Regional Geology

    The property is located within the northeastern portion of the Uchi

    Subprovince, which is part of the Superior province of the Precambrian

    Shield. This east trending structural belt is composed of predominantly of

    highly metamorphosed clastic metasedimentary units and lesser granitic rocks

    (2560 to 2700 Ma).

    Property Geology

    The property is underlain by granitic migmatites and hornblende gabbros.

    Gabbros generally occur as a northeast trending body found on the southwest

    portion of the property, which eventually flattens out to an east - west strike

    near the baseline. This gabbro is in turn intruded by a mineralized east - west

    trending mineralized hornblende gabbro that displays two separate phases.

    (1. A mineralized hornblende gabbro and 2. A mineralized hornblendite)

    There doesn't seem to be any marked difference in the assay values between

    the two units

    Grid

    A total of 7.4 kilometers of line was cut in order to cover the two intrusives on

    the property. This was necessary because of the windstorm in the fall of

    2000 has blown down about 30 to 4007o of the large black spruce on the

    property making travel over the property extremely challenging. This storm

    had essentially rendered the original grid useless and required the new grid to

    be cut to be of any use.

  • 9. 281 S 4A- . U

    Grid lines were cut from the original baseline from O to 10+00 E at 50 meter

    intervals and stations established every 25 metres along these lines, azimuth

    of the baseline is at 090 degrees with the grid lines perpendicular to this at

    000 degrees

    Previous Work

    The first recorded work in the area was a magnetic survey conducted by

    Addicks Canadian Properties Inc. At this time W. Miron did some trenching

    and sampling over a mafic intrusive body defined by the survey (Regional

    Geologist's Files, Thunder Bay North. Beardmore-Geraldton District). It was

    then known as the Sim Lake nickel prospect. W. Miron originally discovered

    the prospect having access to his own float plane and the government

    airborne magnetometer survey. In 1995, Golden Trump Resources sampled

    the mineralized trenches within the known mafic intrusive, which returned

    results peaking at Q.46% copper and Q.24% nickel.

    The present owners did the Linecutting-VLF-Magnetometer Survey in 1998

    under an OPAP Grant (G. White MNDM Property visit, Thunder Bay).

    The most encouraging assays from the 1999 mapping-sampling program

    were Q.984% Ni, 0.81307o Cu, Q.03% Co and 1.3 Grams PGE's, which was

    taken as a grab sample from Line 6+00 W l ~1 +00 N.

    Proton Magnetometer Survey

    The proton magnetometer survey was invaluable to defining the main and

    western intrusives present on the property.

    The survey was run using a Sintrex MP-3 Proton magnetometer. Readings

    were taken at 12.5 intervals and corrected to the baseline which was tied in

    and corrected before the surveying of the grid lines commenced.

    Two slightly flattened circular shaped bodies occur over the grid surveyed.

    The new survey was successful in outlining a second, western intrusive

    occurring between lines 7+50 E and 9+00 E. The occurrence of this body was

  • suspected from the primary survey conducted in 1998; however this survey;

    at the tighter grid spacing was successful in defining it. The main intrusive to

    the body dips to the south. This layering may be repeated in the western

    intrusive as evident from the two spot highs found within its outline.

    The magnetometer also outlined a narrow link between the two bodies

    where assays of greater than l *fo nickel were obtained from Inco sampling.

    Stripping Program

    A program of manual stripping was conducte
