The Tamarack Project comprises 360 claims covering over 5,700 hectares of the McFauld's Lake volcanic belt immediately northeast of recent nickel and chromite discoveries made by Noront, Freewest and KWG /Spider.
Tamarack is located in the central part of the McFauld's Belt and contains both the northern extension of the central VMS horizon and the interpreted northeast extension of the mafic complex. The property, therefore, has potential for both
base metal and vanadium-(iron) mineralization.
In 2005 the Company drilled two holes, M6 and M7, which intersected Cu-rich VMS mineralization approximately 2.5 kilometres along the projected northern extension of the central VMS horizon from the McFauld's 1, 2 and 3 deposits. In 2008, Noront Resources reported high-grade vanadium mineralization approximately 5km southwest of the Tamarack property within gabbroic rocks interpreted (from airborne magnetics) to extend into the Tamarack claims.
