Base Metals

Forum Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: FMC) (OTCQB: FDCFF) is pleased to announce drill results at its 100% owned Love Lake Nickel-Copper-Palladium project in north-eastern Saskatchewan. The Love Lake layered mafic complex is located approximately 100 kilometre east of Cameco's Key lake uranium mill along Highway 905 to the Rabbit Lake McClean Lake uranium mills (Figure 1). Forum completed twelve holes for a total of 2,844 metres on three targets - Korvin Lake, Korvin Creek and What Lake.

HIGHLIGHTS

What Lake

  • LL-03 - 0.23% Cu, 0.05% Ni, 85 ppb Pt, 118 ppb Pd over 8.5 metres from 34.5m to 43m

Korvin Creek

  • LL-08 - 0.56% Cu, 0.06%Ni, 5 ppb Pt, 14 ppb Pd over 13.5 metres from 24.5m to 38m
  • LL-10 - 0.45% Cu, 0.07% Ni over 23 metres from 3m to 26m

Larry Hulbert, Cu-Ni-PGE Consultant to the Love Lake Project, stated, "The unusually high Copper/Nickel ratios associated with the magnesium-rich mafic to ultramafic host lithologies at Korvin Creek and their extreme PGE-depletion are incompatible and could suggest an unrecognized earlier sulphide-PGE segregation event. The anomalous Platinum and Palladium association at What Lake needs further investigation."

Over 2000 samples of core were taken to examine the geochemistry of this large layered system to determine the geological controls of the nickel, copper, platinum and palladium mineralization encountered at Love Lake. Detailed chemostratigraphic analyses through all the drill holes clearly indicate that these intersections reflect lithologies that are the products of an intrusive complex that has experienced a high degree of differentiation. Such differentiation is a fundamental requirement of intrusions that host Platinum Group Element (PGE) mineralization.

Drill holes 3 to 12 display classic textural examples of layered intrusion features and magmatic sulphides over wide intervals. However, anomalous concentrations of PGE only occurred in holes 3 and 4 at What Lake in lithologies that appear to be no different than that seen in holes 5 to 12 at Korvin Lake (Figure 2).

Results from this initial drill program by Forum are shown in Table 1.

Love Lake Nickel-Copper-Platinum-Palladium- Project

The Peter Lake Domain in northern Saskatchewan is the largest mafic/ultramafic complex in North America second only to the Duluth Complex which is centered in the heart of the Midcontinent Rift System in Minnesota and Ontario and is host to numerous magmatic copper/nickel and platinum/palladium deposits. For over 250 km of the Peter Lake Domain numerous copper/nickel and platinum/palladium showings have been uncovered over the past fifty years that have received only sporadic exploration.

Forum staked 32,075 hectares over the 20km by 5km Love Lake Complex in 2019, a 2.56 billion year old, palladium enriched layered gabbroic intrusive. A 4,412 line kilometre Heli-GT magnetic/gradiometric survey was completed for Forum by SHA Geophysics in 2020, two field programs of geological mapping, geochemical sampling and prospecting were completed by Forum in 2019 and 2020 and a 588 line kilometre HeliSam Time Domain airborne EM survey was completed in 2021.

Forum Commences Resistivity Survey on the Fir Island Uranium Option with Orano Canada

Forum Commences Resistivity Survey on the Fir Island Uranium Option with Orano Canada

Forum Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: FMC) ("Forum" or "Company") is pleased to announce that an extensive resistivity survey has commenced on the Fir Island Uranium project under option to Orano Canada Inc. Orano is funding this $495,000 survey as part of its option to earn up to 70% of the Fir Island project by spending up to $6 million. Orano has funded two drill programs with Forum as Operator and upon completion of this program, Orano will have spent $3 million on the project to earn a 51% interest.

Drilling by Forum in 2020 and 2021 identified the 'Cathy Fault' that exhibits strong alteration, elevated geochemical indicators, and an abundance of dravite; a boron-rich clay that is present around most uranium deposits on the eastern side of the Athabasca Basin. A resistivity survey was completed on the project in 2019 and has proven to be an excellent tool for defining areas of alteration in the sandstone and basement lithologies. Resistivity lows typically indicate alteration and has worked well on the Fir Island project locating the strong alteration associated with the Cathy Fault. The current survey follows the northern strike extension of the Cathy Fault, locally defined by an EM conductor and a series of gravity lows (Figure 1). The gravity lows and conductor continue to the mainland where they intersect the major Black Lake Fault and a series of related large gravity lows. This survey should define a number of excellent drill targets for future programs.

Top 5 Junior Copper Stocks on the TSXV in 2022

Click here to read the previous best junior copper stocks article.

Copper passed its all-time price high earlier this year, but Q2 and Q3 have been less kind to the metal, partially due to industrial demand slowing with China's COVID-19 lockdowns.

However, fundamentals remain positive for copper. The Investing News Network spoke with Byron King of the Lifetime Income Report at the Rule Symposium, and the expert shared his outlook for the metal.

"If you follow the fundamentals of copper you know that if you forecast it out … there's not enough copper," he said, explaining that many large mines are declining and there aren't enough new assets in the pipeline.

Copper is down from its all-time high earlier this year, but its long-term outlook remains strong.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium, Byron King said investors who follow the copper market know that the red metal's supply/demand outlook creates a positive picture.

"If you follow the fundamentals of copper you know that if you forecast it out … there's not enough copper," he said, noting that many large mines focused on the base metal are in "terminal decline," with not nearly enough new discoveries and development projects in the pipeline.
