The Little Trout property consists of 46 claim units comprising approximately 776 hectares of highly prospective geology for cobalt and copper mineralization. The claims are contiguous with Cobalt Power’s Canadian Cobalt project.
The Little Trout property is located approximately 2.5 km southwest of the historic town of Silver Centre and approximately 27 km south of the town of Cobalt, Ontario. The property is accessible by forestry roads followed by 2 km of ATV trails.
The Little Trout property lies within the Huronian Basin and is almost entirely underlain by gently dipping sedimentary rocks belonging to the Lorrain Formation, consisting of quartzites, feldspathic quartzites, and arkose. A Nipissinggabbroic intrusion crosses the NW corner of the property.
Lake sediment samples taken by the Ontario Geological Survey in 2004 returned assay values as high as 123 ppm Co and 308 ppm Cu. The metal suite of the lake anomalies is atypical of the Co- Ag-As signature of Cobalt and Silver Centre mineralization, which is commonly hosted by Nipissing diabase dikes. The Co-Cu signature suggests the presence of another style of mineralization including possibly sediment-hosted Cu-Co.
Very little historical exploration work has been completed on the Little Trout property as the geological setting is unconventional for silver-cobalt mineralization that was historically exploited in the Cobalt camp. A silver-copper showing (Friday Creek) hosted by Nipissing diabase in contact with Lorrain quartzites occurs approximately 3 km to the west of Little Trout.
