Rare Earth Element Carbonatite-Syenite

The 43,593 hectare Omineca REE Project is located in an underexplored, favourable mining jurisdiction in north-central British Columbia. The area is structurally favourable for syenite-carbonatite hosted rare earth element (REE) deposits. The Project was acquired through staking in 2022 and hosts several regional geochemical anomalies elevated in La-Ce coincident with magnetic geophysical anomalies. It represents an opportunity for grassroots discovery of a rare earth element syenite-carbonatite deposit.

Location and Access

The Project is located within the Omineca mountain range of north-central British Columbia, approximately 35km to the east of the past producing Kemess mine. Logging roads are located adjacent to the southern claims of the land package, and access requires helicopter support. The transmission line servicing the Kemess mine is located 15km to the west of the Project.

Geology and Mineralisation

The Project is located within the Cassiar Terrane of the foreland belt of the North American Cordillera. The Project is primarily underlain by the Proterozoic Windermere Supergroup, a wedge of clastic sediments along the ancestral North American miogeocline. Several carbonatite events occurred within the North American Cordillera of Devonian to Mississippian age, localized along the Northern Rocky Mountain Trench fault. Discrete magnetic highs within the Project may represent unrecognized intrusive phases. Analogous mineralisation along strike from the Project includes the Wicheeda Deposit, an alkaline carbonatite and fenite breccia intruding into earlier syenites.

Exploration History

Limited historical exploration work has been conducted at the Omineca Project. Apart from regional magnetic geophysics and government stream sediment sampling programs, one campaign of 42 heavy mineral concentrate samples and 7 silt stream sediment samples were completed.

Summary of exploration activities conducted by Kenorland Minerals

The Omineca REE Project was acquired by Kenorland through map staking in December 2022. Compilation of historical stream sediment geochemistry has been completed by Kenorland. An airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical survey was completed in the summer of 2023 to generate areas for follow up work.
