Fiedmont Platinum Group Metals (PGM) Property
The Fiedmont property is located 30km north of Val d'Or, Quebec, and is road accessible. The property consists of 84 claims (3,458 ha); 40 claims of which were staked in 2008. Kinbauri completed a 4 hole (240m) diamond drilling program plus a heliborne magnetometer survey in 2006. The drill program, which targeted 4 showings within a small area, identified three mineralized zones; some of the better intercepts from the drill program are:
1.2 grams per tonne (g/t) Platinum+Palladium and 0.12% Nickel
1.12 g/t Platinum+Palladium and 0.13% Nickel over 2.5m
1.5 g/t Platinum+Palladium and 0.071% Nickel over 5.0m
The airborne survey indicated the presence of two large, differentiated mafic/ultramafic intrusive complexes on the property. Recently, a 2km x 2km grid was cut to cover most of the northern complex, including all showings identified to date. A total of 1,842 humus samples were collected across the grid for PGM and base metal geochemical analysis. During sample collection, a large area of mafic breccia was identified. PFN plans to initiate diamond drilling this winter, focusing on areas of known PGM mineralization and targets defined by the soil (humus) sampling program and magnetometer survey.
