Midland Exploration will be partnering with the Nunavik Mineral Exploration fund to explore an area of strong nickel-copper-cobalt potential in Quebec.
Midland Exploration (TSXV:MD) has announced the conclusion of a 50-50 partnership agreement with the Nunavik Mineral Exploration fund, to explore an area of strong nickel-copper-cobalt potential located between 50 and 100 kilometers southeast of Kuujjuaq, Nunavik, Québec.
The NMEF will be the operator of the partnership, which os for a project over 51 staked claims over three blocks.
As quoted in the press release:
The targeted area is characterized by several mafic intrusions of the soissons suite, of mesoproterozoïc age, similar to the nain plutonic suite in Labrador. The nain plutonic suite is host to the world-class nickel-copper-cobalt Voisey’s Bay deposit in Labrador. The area is also characterized by unexplained nickel-copper lake sediment anomalies disclosed in regional government surveys, as well as unexplained copper anomalies in tills. The zone is poorly known and explored.
The 2018 campaign will consist in prospection and geological mapping of the soissons intrusions on the claims, and will be combined with a training program for Nunavik prospectors.
