About the Montviel Rare Earths/Niobium Project
The Montviel Rare Earths/Niobium Project is located approximately 45 km west of the Cree First Nation of Waswanipi and 100 km north of Lebel-sur-Quévillon in the southern, developed, part of Quebec’s « Plan Nord »(North of 49th parallel). The Plan Nord is an $80 billion economic, social and environmental development plan of Northern Quebec over a period of 25 years. Montviel’s initial NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation at abase cut-off grade of 1% total rare earths oxides (TREO), released on September 29, 2011, totalled 183.9 Mt averaging 1.45% TREO in the Indicated resources category and 66.7 Mt averaging 1.46% TREO in the Inferred resources category. Montviel, one of the largest TREO resource outside China, has the potential for a significant near term role in the growing magnet sector due to its proximity to infrastructure and available labour. The PEA, ongoing with G Mining Services inc., will focus on the rare earths/niobium enrichment zone.
