The Spodumene bearing McAvoy pegmatite is located only 35km from tidewater in the north Slave region of Nunavut. In August 2009, a channel sampling program was carried out on the McAvoy pegmatite. Two rock sawn channel samples collected returned 6.0 m grading 4.5% Li2O and 7.0 m grading 3.3% Li2O. The channels were located 78 m apart and oriented perpendicular to the north-south strike of the pegmatite.

Lithium is contained in the mineral spodumene, high concentrations of which are observable within the McAvoy pegmatite over a 110 m interval and widths of 10 to 15 m. Testing the down dip and additional along strike potential of the McAvoy pegmatite will require a program of ground geophysics and drilling. Mineralogical analysis of a composite sample indicated excellent liberation of spodumene (99%) and microprobe analyses confirmed spodumene is clean of major elements, particularly iron and manganese. The McAvoy pegmatite is a potential source of premium priced, rare technical grade spodumene used in the glass, ceramic and metallurgical industries.
