The Trans-Hudson Project comprises 36 claims with a total surface area of 79,892 hectares, located roughly around and in between the communities of Creighton, La Ronge, and Southend in central Saskatchewan. The properties contain 124 mapped and interpreted pegmatites that are between 0.5 and 14.5 kilometers in strike length. Pegmatites were staked based on preferred geologic environments, historical geochemistry and historical mapping. Importantly, they have seen little to no exploration for lithium. The Trans-Hudson orogeny is a series of Paleoproterozoic volcanic and metasedimentary belts that join the Superior, Hearne-Rae and Wyoming cratons of the Archean. This package hosts numerous mafic volcanics, felsic volcanics, granitoids, gneisses, metasediments, quartzites, marbles and pegmatites. Many pegmatites are described as white and containing beryl, tourmaline, garnet and/or muscovite, which indicates they are S-type and have potential to host LCT mineralization.
Hanson Lake Option Agreement
The Hanson Lake Project includes 12 claims totaling 16,103 hectares that are located between Hanson Lake and Jan Lake, Saskatchewan and is transected by Highway 106 which connects Creighton to southwestern Saskatchewan. The package contains 57 mapped S-type pegmatites that are between 0.5 and 2.2 kilometers in strike length. The Hanson Lake pegmatite field has been known since the 1960’s but exploration was focused on beryllium, tantalum and other rare metals potential. The pegmatite field is located within an 8 kilometer by 3 kilometer corridor that is part of the larger Jan Lake granite-pegmatite suite which is present throughout the entire package. The majority of the project has not been mapped in detail and none of the pegmatites have been systematically sampled or drilled for lithium. Spodumene has been mapped in four different pegmatites with the largest reaching up to 16 meters in width and roughly 550m in strike length.
The claim group is within the Trans-Hudson orogeny that hosts lithium deposits in the Snow Lake region of Manitoba and the Black Hills of South Dakota. The package is considered highly prospective to discover additional LCT pegmatites. Furthermore, BRW holds additional regional claims as part of its recently announced portfolio in Saskatchewan (see January 17, 2023 press release).
This Project comprises 1 claim with a total surface area of 1,386 hectares, located roughly 75 kilometres west of Uranium city, near the border with Alberta. The property contains 2 mapped pegmatites that are roughly 1,500 metres in strike length. Claims were staked based on preferred geologic environments and historical mapping and have seen no prior lithium exploration.
