The Kaba Project is an approximately 2,600-hectare Copper-Lithium exploration property located 50km northeast of the town of Nipigon, the junction of the Trans-Canada Highways 11 and 17, in northwestern Ontario, Canada. Logging roads provide excellent access.

Two copper occurrences on the property are intimately associated with the northwest trending Eastborne Hall Lake Fault, a product of late-stage Mid Continental Rifting (Figure 2). The occurrences are contained within copper-rich breccia’s and veins, with chalcopyrite, bornite and pyrite associated with quartz breccia hosted within biotite granite and diabase.

The Company also targeted the project for its Lithium potential. The Property is situated approximately 15kms east of the Barbara Lake Pegmatite field, where numerous discoveries of Li-bearing pegmatites have recently occurred. Currently there are multiple companies both developing and exploring for lithium in the immediate area (Figure 1).

More about Kaba

Very little systematic exploration and drilling has been completed along the copper-bearing structure with the last drill program completed in 1980 (3 holes for 172m). No assays are available.


Ground and magnetic surveys were completed on the Kaba ground in 1968 by Anglo-American. Two anomalies, 275m and 180m long, were outlined by magnetics. The EM survey indicated mineralization extended for 1200m. Drilling by Anglo highlighted 26.5m grading 1% Cu and 17.3m grading 0.54% Cu (MDI42E04NE00007). There were no analyses for gold.

Copper Assays

Most copper assays were whited out in the assessment report. Other intervals include 2.02% Cu over 4.27m and 1.26% Cu over 3.65m. Chip samples in 1979 by Stinson reported 0.32% Cu over 9.14m (AFRI 42E04NE8355).

Barbara Lake

The Barbara Lake area includes, among others, Imagine Lithium, which recently drilled 21m of 1.16% Li2O, and 5m of 1.12% Li20 (Imagine Lithium, News Release, October 19, 2022) and Rock Tech Lithium’s Georgia Lake Project, where the Northern Spodumene Pegmatite Area has a Measured resource of 2.31mt at 1.04% Li2O and an Indicated resource of 4.31mt at 0.99% Li2O (Rock Tech 43-101 PEA, March 15, 2021).
