Churchill optioned Taylor Brook from Altius in late 2020, and has since commenced exploration with a state-of-the-art VTEMTM Plus time-domain electromagnetic and horizontal gradiometer magnetic survey to better trace the known Ni-Cu-Co near-surface mineralization to depth. The survey has successfully confirmed that conductors extend to depth at the known showing, but as well that several other high priority conductive targets are present. The property has been doubled in size recently based on compilations of past exploration in the area.
The Taylor Brook Property is located 60km north of Deer Lake, Newfoundland, and is comprised of two contiguous map-staked licenses containing 226 claims totalling 56.5 km2, which has known high grade Ni-Cu-Co mineralization at surface and shallow drilled depths from work carried out between 1999-2012.
Spring/Summer 2021 Exploration Program will include:
• Ground follow-up/prospecting/trenching new targets
• Downhole geophysics on boreholes in Layden Ni Area
• Drilling 2,500m on new targets and known area
• Budget ~$750k
Taylor Brook Property:
Taylor Brook is a high-grade Magmatic Nickel, Copper, Cobalt, PGE Prospect that spans 56.5km2. The property itself has excellent infrastructure and access.
It's currently optioned from Altius, and the team is currently assisting technically on the project.
Newly staked claims cover possible magma chamber feeder for magmatic sulphide system seen at Layden Showing
Drilling 200m apart beneath Layden Prospect in 2008 returned:
In hole 08-TB-17
In hole 08-TB-09
The vintage EM picks up near-surface mineralization at Layden showing area.
2021 VTEM survey sees deeper, property expanded along strike, and will give better & deeper resolution to known mineralized zone. Conductors in other areas along strike to be investigated
