Laurion Mineral Exploration (TSXV:LME, OTCPINK: LMEFF) is an exploration and development company solely focused on the Ishkoday gold project located in Ontario. The company’s flagship ‘brownfield’ Ishkoday gold-polymetallic project is located 220 kilometers northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The 47-square kilometer Ishkoday project is wholly-owned by Laurion Mineral Exploration, which acquired the property in 2007.
Laurion Mineral Exploration’ Ishkoday project is the home of two past-producing shafts, Sturgeon River and Brenbar, which returned grades of 17.0 g/t gold and 20.0 g/t gold respectively. The Quebec Sturgeon River gold mine has produced 73,322 ounces of gold and 15,929 ounces of silver to date. Acquired in December of 2019, the Brenbar project encompasses 2.55 square kilometers of land contiguous with the Ishkoday project. The property hosts the past-producing Brenbar mine which generated 135 tonnes between 1941 and 1949.
The Ishkoday property also contains a considerable stockpile of surface material. According to a 2013 NI 43-101 Technical Report, the stockpile is estimated to contain a total of 281,571 tonnes grading at 1.14 g/t gold for a total of 10,327 contained ounces of gold. Moving forward, Laurion Mineral Exploration intends to monetize the stockpile as it continues to explore the property.
