Comment NTS 85-I-5 Centre of claim = 62.29 N 113.35 W Seventy holes were blasted in an area known to have Li-rich pegmatite dykes. Rock chips from the trenches were sampled and sent for assay, yielding Li values of up to 3.00 %. Samples also yielded values of Nb and Ta as high as 130 and 272 ppm, respectively. File contains: 1) An overview of work done including an area map. 2) Descriptions of hand samples taken from trenches. 3) Assay certificates. 4) Maps of geology exposed in trenches. 5) A report detailing the results of metallurgical evaluation studies. Spodumene bearing pegmatitic dykes do exist in the vicinity and are of considerable overall extent and dimensions. However their trend is NW rather than NE. Unfortunately, the dykes occur in an area of extensive muskeg and cover obscuring their continuity, and almost totally obscuring at least one further dyke of likely major significance.
