North Arrow’s diamond exploration programs are conducted under the direction of President and CEO, Ken Armstrong, P.Geo., a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Mr. Armstrong has reviewed and approved all information posted on this page that is of a scientific or technical nature.

SUMMARY

Location: Lac de Gras, Northwest Territories
Size: 8,607 hectares
Ownership: 100%
Stage: Ground geophysics and drilling.
Closest Infrastructure: 30 km southwest, and 24 km west of the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines


HIGHLIGHTS

OVERVIEW

The property consists of two claim blocks, Loki South and Loki East, located in the Lac de Gras region to the southwest of the Diavik and Ekati diamond mines. The Loki East claims are contiguous to the south and east of the diamondiferous Monument kimberlite cluster and to the west of North Arrow’s LDG property. Loki East hosts a number of prospective exploration targets as well as five known kimberlites: EG01N, EG01S, EG02, EG05 and EG130.  In 2017 North Arrow completed a 302 line km helicopter-borne VTEM Plus time domain electromagnetic and magnetic survey over the known kimberlites and several additional targets as well as four ground geophysical surveys in preparation for a spring 2018 drilling program.   

In March of 2018 North Arrow conducted this drill program targeting the EG-05 kimberlite as well as other priority anomalies.  The press release of April 5th announced a total of 607m drilled including intersections of the EG-05 kimberlite along with the discovery of a new kimberlite at target 465.  Kimberlite 465 is located in close proximity to the Monument Cluster of kimberlite pipes. Drill hole 18-465-02 encountered a 20.85m interval of black to olive green kimberlite with up to and locally exceeding 10% country rock (granite) dilution. The kimberlite was described as altered and containing kimberlite indicator minerals, including altered olivine and more rarely, garnet. 

Detailed logging of the kimberlite intervals from 465 and EG05 have been conducted. Samples of each were submitted for microdiamond and kimberlite indicator mineral analysis with results currently pending. Additional drilling is required to evaluate the size, orientation, and internal geology of the 465 and EG05 kimberlites. 

Plans for 2019 currently include increasing the density of till sampling in specific areas on the property building our KIM database as we work towards a future drill program that will provide strengthened geochemical support to geophysical anomalies.
