Nb-Ta Rare Earth Element

Acquired through staking in 2022, the 12,127 ha Torrance Project lies along the Kapuskasing Structural Zone (KSZ) in northern Ontario. Distinct ringed magnetic features in regional aeromagnetic data share similar patterns and scales to other alkaline-carbonatite complexes along the KSZ, including the Laker Lake Complex. The Torrance Project represents an excellent opportunity for grassroots discovery of a rare earth element hosting complex close to infrastructure in a favourable jurisdiction.

Location and Access

The Torrance Project is located 125km north of the town of Timmins in northwestern Ontario. The Project is well situated for infrastructure; accessible by forest service road, power transmission lines are within 15km of the Project boundary, and exploration services and personnel are readily available in Timmins.

Geology and Mineralisation

The Project is located within the Archean Superior province along the northeast trending Kapuskasing Structural Zone (KSZ), a long-lived structural corridor with significant uplift that transects the Superior Province. Several magmatic episodes of alkaline-carbonatite intrusive complexes occur along the KSZ from the Paleoproterozoic to Ordovician. These complexes have the potential to host Nb-Ta and REE mineralisation, such as the Hecla-Kilmer alkaline complex 16km to the northeast, and the Lackner Lake Alkaline Complex 200km to the southwest along strike. The Torrance Project shows similarities with these other complexes, including distinct ring patterns in the regional aeromagnetic data.

Exploration History

No previous assessment work or drilling has been filed on the Torrance Project.

Summary of exploration activities conducted by Kenorland Minerals

Since acquiring the Torrance Project through staking in February 2022, Kenorland has completed reprocessing of regional aeromagnetic data and regional geological compilation. Additional claims were staked in April 2023.
