Exploration History

A regional geological mapping and sampling program by the property’s current owner yielded significant results. Historical grab sampling result highlights include: 1.17% Ni, 1.6% Ni, 1.7 % Ni, 3.9% Ni. taken from outcrops, old workings and mine dumps. A Geophysical program has been completed on the Property by the current owner, indicating several potential drill targets.

In 2020, Smooth Rock completed Phase I of the Giroux exploration program that consisted of reconnaissance prospecting, geological mapping, surface trenching, sampling, and relocating historical workings. This reconnaissance program provided accurate modern data to assist in the planning of the initial 2021 drill program. Drilling will focus on the surface exposures around the historical workings throughout the property, confirmed by the Company’s 2020 regional geological mapping and sampling program. The initial drill program is expected to occur later in 2021.
