Murchison Minerals Ltd. is a Canadian-based exploration company focused on the exploration and development of its 100%-owned flagship high-grade Brabant Lake zinc-copper-silver project, located in north-central Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Company also own 100 per cent of the Haut Plateau de la Manicouagan (HPM) nickel-copper-cobalt project in Quebec, Canada.

Both projects have excellent infrastructure. Saskatchewan and Quebec were ranked the 3rd and 4th most attractive mining jurisdictions worldwide in the 2018 survey of mining companies conducted by the Fraser Institute.

Projects in Hand

(1) Brabant Lake Zinc-Copper-Silver Project, Saskatchewan (Flagship Project)

Murchison’s 100%-owned (no royalties) flagship Brabant Lake Project is located 175 kilometres northeast of La Ronge, Saskatchewan, and approximately three kilometres from the community of Brabant Lake. The area is accessed year-round via provincial Highway 102 and is serviced by a power grid. The Project lies in the same geological environment as the Flin Flon, Lalor Lake, Lynn Lake and Snow Lake Deposits.

The Project consists of one mining lease, which hosts the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit, and additional mineral claims which totals 566 square kilometres, extending over 57 kilometres of strike length over favourable geological horizons, multiple known mineral showings and identified geophysical conductors.

The Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit has National Instrument 43-101 resources of:

  • Indicated: 2.1 million tonnes at 7.08% zinc, 0.69% copper, 0.49% lead, 39.60 g/t silver, 9.98% ZnEq;
  • Inferred: 7.6 million tonnes at 4.45% zinc, 0.57% copper, 0.19% lead, 18.40 g/t silver, 6.29% ZnEq.

The Brabant-McKenzie deposit ranks as one of the highest grade zinc deposits amongst its peers. 2018 drilling results confirmed the high-grade nature of the deposit. The Brabant McKenzie VMS deposit remains open for expansion.

Murchison has selected 12 high priority drill targets from 30 coincident EM/magnetic anomalies identified in the January 2019 airborne VTEM survey and from ground geophysics. Half of these targets lie along a 12-kilometre trend interpreted as being the same geological horizon that hosts the Brabant-McKenzie deposit. Murchison initiated a minimum, 4,000-metre drill program to test these targets starting in late January 2020.

Significant Exploration Potential:

  • Over 60 Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) /MAG targets identified to-date
  • Additional targets likely to be identified with a minimum 900 line kilometer VTEM airborne survey planned
  • All of Murchison's claims will then have VTEM airborne coverage
  • Newly identified EM/MAG conductors will be mapped in the 2020 field season

Planned Activities 2020

  • Completed field prospecting, mapping, sampling over all the major EM/High Mag targets identified in the 2019 VTEM airborne survey
  • Selected 5 high priority targets for diamond drilling in January to March 2020 (about 3,000 m)
  • Undertake a minimum 900 line km VTEM airborne survey to cover all un-flown claims at Brabant Lake starting in mid-March
  • Subject to financing, diamond drill in-fill holes at the Brabant-McKenzie deposit to expand the indicated resource tonnage
  • Undertake field prospecting on the new Henry, MAS, M and M-North Claim Blocks at Brabant Lake

(2) Haut Plateau de la Manicouagan (HPM) Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project, Quebec

The 100%-owned HPM property is located between Baie-Comeau and Fermont, Québec, about 20 kilometres from an all-season road connecting the two communities. The HPM property lies within the Manicouagan Metamorphic Complex and hosts several nickel-copper-cobalt occurrences. The Project has recently doubled in size to 58.3 square kilometres, and is in close proximity to roads and rail.

The HPM property covers the prospective geological unit that hosts significant nickel, copper and cobalt mineralization identified by a total of 32 diamond drill holes (6,479 metres) completed in 2001/2002 and 2008.

The two main historical prospects identified are Barre de Fer and PYC:

  • Barre de Fer EM conductor extends over 800 m. Nickel, copper and cobalt mineralization has been traced by diamond drilling for approximately 300 metres along strike and to a depth of about 280 metres. Best result occurs in hole HPM 08-03 where 43.2 metres averaging 1.74% Ni, 0.9% Cu, and 0.09% Co.
  • PYC EM conductor traced for 1,200 m. Surface grab samples from the PYC showing returned 0.59% Ni and 0.93% Cu, and a single drill hole intersected 15.3 metres grading 0.28% Ni, 0.14% Cu and 0.06% Co.

The HPM property has numerous high-grade Nickel intervals from the 2008 drill program and the deposit remains open for expansion.

  • Wide interval of disseminated sulfide may have substantial tonnage potential and warrant assessment for high volume, low cost open mining potential
  • Prospecting identified numerous Ni-Cu-Co showings
  • Numerous unexplored EM anomalies require follow up

Next Steps: Prospecting and exploration drilling program

News Update

On April 6, 2020, Murchison Minerals Ltd. announced that it has completed a 949-line-kilometre electromagnetic (VTEM-Max) airborne survey covering approximately 3,353 hectares at the Brabant Lake project in Northern Saskatchewan. A total of 58 new conductors have been identified, of which 35 are located on the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit horizon.

This survey successfully identified 35 electromagnetic (EM) conductors to the southwest of the Brabant-McKenzie deposit and the recently announced Main Lake drill discovery. Approximately 23 additional EM conductors have also been defined on the M-Block group of claims located on the eastern side of the Brabant project.

On March 31, 2020, Murchison announced that its exploration drilling on the Brabant Lake property has intersected high-grade copper-zinc mineralization 10 kilometres southwest of the Brabant-McKenzie volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit.

The discovery is at the prospective Main Lake target, interpreted to be on the same geologic horizon as the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit. Drill hole ML-20-004 is located 270 metres northeast of the historic high-grade Main Lake showing.

The mineralization found in diamond drill hole ML-20-004 consists of a copper-rich upper zone and a zinc-rich lower zone. The Upper zone was intersected over an interval of 3.59 metres with 0.83% copper, 0.61% zinc and 11.8 g/t silver. The Lower zone was intersected over an interval of 6.62 metres, returning 0.09% copper, 1.62% zinc and 41 g/t silver, including 1.02 metres at 5.08% zinc and 0.22 metre at 9.77% zinc. There are several high-grade silver intercepts in this zone as well, the highest of which was 81.2 g/t silver over 0.82 metre.

“This new discovery at the Brabant Lake project further indicates its potential to be an up and coming new VMS mining camp” – Mr. Jean-Charles Potvin, President and CEO Murchison Minerals.
