Rogue Resources files technical report for silica-quartz project

Snow White is located 125 kilometres west of Sudbury.

Rogue Resources has filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report for its Snow White silica-quartz project near Massey.

In a Jan. 8 news release, the company said the report summarizes historic work completed on the site and describes recent metallurgical and analytical test results on the project, but does not disclose a resource estimate.

Rogue’s president and CEO, Sean Samson, said the report marks a milestone for the company.

“The technical report supports the presence of high quality quartz/silica that is suitable for silicon metal production,” Samson said in the release.

“Rogue also believes the quartz has physical properties, including colour, that should be attractive to the filler and countertop industries.

“Our plans are to aggressively advance this project, including further definition of the silica zone, engage with local area contractors to develop the project, and advance discussions with potential customers.”

Snow White consists of three staked mining claims representing approximately 96 hectares, located approximately 26 kilometres northwest of the town of Massey, which is about 125 kilometres west of Sudbury.

Rogue noted that the project currently has class A and class B pit-quarry-aggregate permits for unlimited annual silica/quartz production. The company said it has met with the province’s natural resources and forestry ministry to “discuss and verify the existing aggregate permit.”

Rogue acquired the property in December Rogue additionally holds the Silicon Ridge project in Québec; the Radio Hill property, located 85 kilometres southwest of Timmins; and the Langmuir property, located 25 kilometres south of South Porcupine.
