Dagny Lake

The Dagny Lake project is located 55 km northeast of Sioux Lookout. It is accessible by a series of logging roads, many of which have been overgrown, but provide good access by foot to much of the property. The claims are held 50% by EMX and 50% by Exiro Minerals.

Located in the English River Subprovince, the property was staked in 2018 based on coincident magnetic anomalies and >99 %tile Ni-Cu-Co in lake sediments collected by the OGS in 20011. No other work has been conducted in the area. Since then, Exiro has conducted two field programs. In 2019, a prospecting program was completed, presenting encouraging results for a first pass program: Elevated Co, Cu and Ni results from mafic lenses/pods within gneissic rocks. In 2022, high-resolution imagery was collected via drone, producing an RGB orthomosaic, DEM and 3D point cloud dataset, which will assist in future targeting. Twelve samples were taken to validate previous results from 20192.

Next steps for the project include stripping of outcrops with the best results from prospecting, using the high-resolution imagery to aid in planning traverses to identify other outcrop in the area. Further investigation of the lake sediments is recommended, along with a property scale electromagnetic geophysical survey to help identify targets under cover.
