About the Separation Project
The Separation Lithum Project covers approximately 80 kilometers of the contact between the English River and Winnipeg River geologic subprovinces. This subprovince boundary is spatially associated with the Tanco Li-Cs-Ta pegmatite deposit in Mantioba, as well as the Big Whopper Li pegmatite in the Separation Rapids area. The presence of these two significant Li pegmatite deposits suggests that the entire English River – Winnipeg River domain contact is prospective for additional Li pegmatite mineralisation.
