Abstract(unpublished)
The Kwyjibo property, located in the northeastern part of the Grenville Province, hosts iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) mineralization and the Josette rare earth element (REE) iron oxide-apatite (IOA) deposit. The property comprises several Mesoproterozoic Fe-Cu-REE-(Au) mineralized zones (e.g., Gabriel, Gabruge, Andradite, Fluorine, Malachite, and Josette), occurring semi-continuously over a ~4-km NE-SW strike length area. In the years following the discovery of the Kwyjibo property, the main mineralized zones, especially the Josette horizon, have been extensively diamond drilled which culminated in the current resources calculations of 6.92 Mt at 2.72% total rare earth oxide (TREO) and 53% Fe2O3 (measured + indicated) and 1.33 Mt at 3.64% TREO and 48% Fe2O3 (inferred). As part of a research project in collaboration with the Université Laval (Québec) and the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles du Québec (MERN), aiming to characterize the Sm-Nd isotopic signatures of the main REE deposits of the Quebec Province, a visit was carried out in 2015 at the Soquem's warehouse in Val d'Or (Quebec) to collect some drill core samples from the main areas with high-grade REE mineralization of the Kwyjibo property. This report under the TGI-6 sub-activity "Mineral systems with IOCG and affiliated critical metal deposits" document the context of the representative samples collected from four boreholes, which intersected the Josette deposit and the Fluorine prospect of the Kwyjibo property, as well as the drill core pictures of the main rock types and the field relationships between each of the units.
