Rocky Lake Property
The 100% owned Rocky Lake property consists of 3,446 hectares in the affluent VMS region of Flin Flon and Snow Lake, Manitoba and hosts the Rocky Lake VMS deposit.
Copper-zinc production from volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits in Manitoba dates back to the first discovery at Flin Flon in 1914. Since then, the Paleoproterozoic Flin Flon domain has been firmly established as one of the most prolific VMS districts worldwide. Despite nearly a century of systematic exploration, new VMS deposits continue to be found, including the world-class Lalor deposit of Hudbay Minerals Inc., which saw initial production in August 2012. The total resource at Lalor stands at over 19 million tonnes grading 0.85% Cu, 3.15% Zn, 4.22 g/t Au and 27.55 g/t Ag, further demonstrating the exceptional potential of the district.
