The MAC Lithium Project comprises four contiguous claims that cover approximately 4,300 hectares and is located 80 kilometres north of Yellowknife immediately west of the Winter Road. The claims host numerous documented pegmatites both north and south of Thistlethwaite Lake which transects the project (Figure 1).
The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada undertook basic surveying across part of the MAC Lithium Project between 1938 and 1940 which identified numerous pegmatite dykes in quartz-mica schists of the Yellowknife Group. A historical description found in a GSC publication from 1944 of a swarm of pegmatite dykes immediately southwest of the MAC Project documents tantalite and beryl as being present within the pegmatites.
This project is the least understood of the three and fieldwork will commence around the end of September 2023 with drone assisted mapping and extensive surface sampling designed to develop drilling targets for the early 2024 drilling campaign.
