Mercator Geological Services, a Canadian geological consultancy firm, will help Fin Resources during the 2023 field season with field and desktop work.

A thorough desktop review of the historical exploration data has identified a number of targets that require immediate follow up fieldwork including coarse-grained pegmatites at Ross, spectral lithium exploration targets at Cancet West, and elevated lithium in stream sediment samples at Gaspe.

Fin Resources (ASX:FIN) has engaged Canadian geological consultancy firm, Mercator Geological Services, to help finalised field work activities prior to the season starting.

It is currently proposed that a multiple day helicopter supported field work program might be completed to field truth currently defined exploration targets, along with completing initial surface sampling and structural outcrop mapping at the Cancet West and Ross projects.

Prospectivity Analysis at Mt Tremblant

Additionally, Mercator will also complete a Prospectivity Analysis across the Mt Tremblant lithium properties.

As part of the Prospectivity Analysis, consideration is given to the geological setting and styles of mineralization, structural setting and intrusions that control mineralization, and identification of exploration targets on the tenements.

A multi-phased approach begins with a property-wide compilation of available geoscience data, including available digital data files from publicly available government and industry files available through the government online dataset.

Model based on known lithium deposits in the area

A prospectivity model will be designed based on LCT (lithium-caesium-tantalum) pegmatite deposit model based on a review of the known lithium deposits in the area.

The final prospectivity map will utilize over 65 layers of data to calculate the prospectivity scores resulting in a heat map.

This model will be designed to highlight areas where favourable structure, lithology, mineralization, and geochemistry for LCT pegmatites come together.
