PAK Rare Metals (Permission to Test Mineral Content)

Description: 

MNDM has received an application from Houston Lake Mining Inc. to extract up to 1,000 tonnes of rock material for the purpose of testing the rock properties for potential applications in the technical grade silica and lithium markets.

This proposed Category B project is being carried out in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for MNDM’s Activities under the Mining Act (Class EA).

The proposal would include:

  • stripping any overburden off of the bedrock, which is currently exposed;
  • drilling and sampling vertical boreholes; and
  • blasting, excavating and hauling the rock material to a crushing facility.

The site would be accessed by water and ice bridges from an existing ice road off of Duckling Lake.

Location:
