Torp Lake Lithium Deposit
6.0 m grading 4.5% Li2O
7.0 m grading 3.3% Li2O
The Torp Lake Project covers 1,003 ha and is located only 35km from tidewater in the north Slave region of Nunavut. The Torp Lake Project hosts the McAvoy lithium-rich pegmatite.
Past channel sampling work on this spodumene bearing pegmatite has returned 6.0 m grading 4.5% Li2O and 7.0 m grading 3.3% Li2O. The channels were located 78 m apart and orientated perpendicular to the north-south strike of the pegmatite.
Lithium is contained in the mineral spodumene, high concentrations of which are observable within the McAvoy pegmatite over a 110m strike length with widths of 10m to 15m. Testing the down dip and additional along-strike potential of the McAvoy pegmatite will require a program of ground geophysics and drilling. Mineralogical analysis, completed by SGS Canada Inc., of a composite sample indicated excellent liberation of spodumene (99%) and microprobe analysis confirmed the spodumene is exceptionally pure and clean of major elements, particularly iron and manganese.
The McAvoy pegmatite is a potential source of premium-priced rare technical grade spodumene.
The Brazil Lake Lithium Project encompasses twenty one contiguous mineral licenses granted by the Government of Nova Scotia covering 14,666 hectares. The Brazil Lake Lithium Project extends from 1 km to 20 km north from Yarmouth, and has excellent infrastructure, with both power lines and the TransCanada highway located within the boundaries of the project.
The Brazil Lake Lithium Project covers a large metasedimentary belt located just northeast of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The project is on-trend with identified lithium spodumene pegmatites owned by privately-held Champlain Mineral Ventures Ltd. (“Champlain”), whose known pegmatites are reportedly among the richest lithium bodies known in North America, reaching 7.7% Li2O in some spodumene crystals (see News Release Petro Horizon Energy Corp., dated February 10, 2010).
Within the large prospective regional project now held by Clean Commodities Corp., prior prospecting identified pegmatite float boulders in till along the Bloomfield Road at Gardners Mills. The Ta-bearing albite facies of the float pegmatites are closely comparable to the Ta zones in the spodumene (lithium) Brazil Lake pegmatites hosted on Champlain’s claims located approximately 250 meters from Clean Commodities Corp.’s project and may possibly be a continuation of that same pegmatite swarm (Nova Scotia Assessment Report – AR2002-008 (“Assessment Report”)). As noted in the Assessment Report, Peter Howe, who originally discovered the Tanco pegmatite in Manitoba, suggested that the Brazil Lake pegmatites and the float boulders near Gardner Mills are similar in composition to the highly evolved pegmatites at Tanco.
As further detailed in the Assessment Report, prior work on ground covered by Clean Commodities Corp.'s Brazil Lake Lithium Project identified a high-grade boulder that assayed 10% Ta2O5 and there may be rare metal pegmatite field enriched in Ta surrounding the known Brazil Lake pegmatites for several square kilometres in areal extent controlled by the Deerfield fault.
