Rogue Resources is reporting an initial resource estimate for its Snow White silica-quartz project near Massey, about 100 kilometres west of Sudbury.
The report includes an indicated resource of 486,000 tonnes grading 97.05 per cent silicon dioxide and an inferred resource of 271,000 tonnes grading 94.34 per cent silicon dioxide. There are currently no measured resources at the Snow White Project
M.Plan International ltd. – a joint initiative of ANZAPLAN and Micon International Ltd. – prepared the mineral resource estimate.
“The resource estimate prepared by M.Plan demonstrates the exceptional high purity and potential of the Snow White project and provides the required grade and tonnage distribution for ongoing negotiations and quarry planning,” said Sean Samson, president and CEO of Rogue Resources, in an Aug. 7 news release.
“This information will provide Rogue the information that will assist the negotiations with potential customers for the Snow White silica.
“We are excited about the potential extension of the quartz mineralization where the initial resource estimated is limited to the main zone,” he added. “However, quartz mineralization has been identified along strike, south of the Main Zone, for approximately 1,000 metres, and the company intends to explore these areas as the project progresses.”
Rogue said the technical report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days.
In addition to the Snow white project, Toronto-headquartered Rogue Resources has in its portfolio the Silicon Ridge silica-quartz project in Québec, the Radio Hill gold exploration project southwest of Timmins, and the Langmuir nickel exploration project south of South Porcupine.
