During December 2017, Supreme had an XRF study undertaken by John O’Sullivan P.Eng., exploration project geologist on the last exploration program conducted on the Property for Avalon. The study confirmed the presence of cobalt in other core locations, and in other core holes, enhancing the cobalt potential of the Property.
Tabled cobalt XRF values analyzed by Supreme from the Mount Thom core is shown above. Note the correlative relationship between copper, nickel and cobalt.
The Property has excellent logistics given it is located midway between Turo and New Glascow, Nova Scotia within 1-3 km to the west of the trans-Canada Highway #104. Good secondary road access exists on the Property and to the main outcrop showing. Hydro lines, including a major transmission line, presently exist on the Property.
A site visit earlier this winter located the main mineralized outcrop on the Property containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, and bornite within the iron carbonate (ankerite) hematized matrix of the brecciated host metasediments. A large area, in excess of 100 square meters of crackled brecciated bleached metasedimentary rock (believed to be a silty shale protolith) was also located to the west of this mineralized outcrop.
