SUMMARY

Location: Lac de Gras, Northwest Territories
Size: 13,898 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 six known kimberlites: EG01N, EG01S, EG02, EG05, EG130 and as of the 2018 drill program, 465.  

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.  In March of 2018 North Arrow conducted a 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 but results showed it was weakly diamondiferous and warranted no further work.  

A three week summer 2019 exploration program was announced on July 16 with plans including prospecting, ground geophysics and till sampling focused in specific areas chosen to provide strengthened geochemical support to existing geophysical anomalies.  A follow up winter drill program is currently scheduled for March of 2020.
