Gorge Lithium Project
BMM has secured exclusive option to acquire up to 100% of Gorge lithium project located in the Georgia Lake Area, Thunder Bay North Mining District of Ontario, Canada.
The Project includes two prospective areas identified by historical works which are yet to be systematically explored.
The tenements comprising the Project are part of the larger Georgia Lake pegmatite district which is home to Rock Tech Lithium Inc’s Georgia Lake project (TSX-V: RCK), Mavis Lake Lithium Project (TSX.V:ILC), Separation Rapids Lithium (TSX: AVL) and Seymour Lake Lithium Project (ASX: GT1).
The Project is well located close to infrastructure including road, rail and port facilities.
The Georgia Lake area is located within the Quetico Subprovince of the Superior Province of Ontario Canada.
The Quetico Subprovince is bounded by the granite-greenstone Wabigoon Subprovince to the north and Wawa Subprovince to the south.
There is an abundance of pegmatites close to and within the large masses of granitic rocks. A regional zoning is apparent and a genetic association of pegmatites and granite is indicated.
The pegmatites occur in two geometries: as irregular-shaped bodies and as thin veins and attenuated lenses. The irregular bodies of pegmatite are intimately associated with the granite bodies often within a few hundred feet of the contact zone.
They typically are medium- to coarse-grained, up to very coarse-grained and are made up of quartz, microcline, perthite and little muscovite. These would be classified as potassic pegmatites. Accessory minerals include biotite, tourmaline and garnet.
The pegmatite veins and lenses can be subdivided into rare-element pegmatites and granitic pegmatites.
The rare-element pegmatites are of economic significance and they contain microcline or perthite, albite, quartz, muscovite and spodumene and minor amounts of beryl, columbite-tantalite and cassiterite.
The granitic pegmatites contain more abundant plagioclase. Some of the pegmatites are parallel to the foliation or bedding of the metasediments, whereas others occur in joints in either the metasediments or granite.
Contacts are usually sharp and, except where veins cut granitic rocks, often found to be marked by a thin border zone of aplite or granitoid composition. A few pegmatites are internally zoned with mica-rich or tourmaline-rich rock along or close to the walls and quartz cores.
