The Turgeon property consists of 331 claims covering 18,366 hecatres located in the Abitibi region of western Quebec. The Property was originally acquired through on-line staking in December 2018 and claims were added through on-line staking in 2020 and 2021.
During the winter of 2019 E-Power completed an exploration program that included ground geophysics (electromagnetics) and diamond drilling.
The highlight of the drill program was a graphite intersection consisting of 9.65 % Cg (carbon as graphite) over an intersection length of 42 metres which included a high-grade section of 8.80 metres at 21.62% Cg (see photo of drill core below).
Notes: Data from the 2019 drilling program on the Turgeon property has been verified by the QP responsible for the preparation of this disclosure. Lengths reported are intersection lengths. True widths are interpreted to be > 80% of intersection lengths.
The Turgeon property is located in a geological domain referred to as the Abitibi Greenstone Belt (“AGB”). The AGB extends in an east-west direction across the Ontario-Quebec border for approximately 500 km and in a north-south direction for a distance of approximately 350 km (see map of Abitibi Greenstone Belt below). The AGB has been, and continues to be, an extremely important mining district for base and precious metals. Historical gold production from the AGB in in excess of 200 million ounces and base metal massive sulphide production totals more than 775 million tonnes.
Since acquisition in 2018, there has been a steep uptick in the level of gold and base metal exploration in the area of the Turgeon Property. The Turgeon property borders the property of Agnico Eagles Detour Lake Mine, located to the northwest, and is approximately 15 kilometres north of the Casa Berardi Gold Mine (see property location map below). Magnetic and electromagnetic patterns support the interpretation of significant structures across the Turgeon property. Base metal (and limited gold) mineral occurrences, dominantly west of the property in Ontario, are associated with the magnetic and electromagnetic lineaments continuous across the Turgeon property (see magnetic map below)
During the fall of 2021, E-Power commissioned an airborne magnetic and time-domain electromagnetic survey. An example of a processed image is in the map below (first vertical derivative of the total magnetic intensity). Based on all information available, the Company concludes that the Turgeon property holds limited potential to host an economically viable flake graphite deposit and the Company no longer considers the Turgeon property as a core asset. The Company has no intention to complete further work on the Turgeon property.
