Seymour Lake Lithium Project
100% owned Seymour Lake Lithium Project is located in Ontario, Canada.
The project has over 4,000m of historic drilling from 2002 and 2009. Recent exploration and drilling has found that the lithium mineralisation is hosted in extensive outcropping spodumene-bearing pegmatite structures with widths up to 30m and grades of up to 6.01% Li2O. In addition historical results show tantalum and beryllium grades of up to 1,180 ppm (Ta2O5) and 1,270ppm (BeO) respectively were intersected.
Mapping and sampling programs by Ardiden successfully confirmed historical data and dramatically expanded the potential strike length of the previously drilled pegmatites up to 5km, further enhancing the previously delineated new pegmatite structures – all of which are located at or near surface. As a result of the early exploration and mapping success, Ardiden significantly expanded the Seymour Lake Project from the original five claims area totalling 923 Ha in two expansion phases. The Company staked an additional 29 claim areas, increasing the project area to 7,019 Ha.
Due to the continued identification of the multiple pegmatite exposures throughout Seymour Lake Project, Ardiden expanded the land-holding south and east in the project to cover these newly identified pegmatite structures and potential mineralisation extensions. The new claims will allow the Ardiden geological team to continue the mapping and exploration program.
The new claims to the east side of the project were not only staked for the pegmatite potential but, given the number of faults, dykes and shear zones along the granite formation, there is also a possibility of identifying base metals in the region. Historically, copper mineralisation was identified within the southern portion of the new claim areas.
