Cameron Lake East


  • Metals of Interest: Gold
  • Location: Rowan Lake Area , Northwestern Ontario
  • Surface Area: 18 contiguous single-cell and multi-cell mining claims for a total of 4,660 Ha

The Cameron Lake East Project consists of 18 mineral claims covering an area of 11,184 acres, approximately 75 km southeast of the town of Kenora in the Kenora Mining Division, Ontario.

The Cameron Lake East Property  is located in the Rowan Lake Area of the Kenora Mining Division in northwestern Ontario, approximately 75 km southeast of the town of Kenora.

The Property is located at the western end of the Late Archean Savant Lake‐Crow Lake Belt in the Western Wabigoon Subprovince of the Superior Province in northwestern Ontario. The Wabigoon Subprovince is a 900 km long, east‐west trending, composite volcanic and plutonic terrane comprising distinct eastern and western domains separated by rocks of Mesoarchean age. Rocks of the Western Wabigoon Subprovince separate gneissic terranes of the Quetico Subprovince to the south and greenstones of the English River Subprovince to the north.

Modern exploration work commenced in the 1950s and numerous companies have carried out prospecting, line cutting, geological mapping, trenching, soil and outcrop sampling and ground and airborne magnetic and electromagnetic surveys.

The Cameron Lake East Property can be accessed by Cameron Road, 16km south of Sioux Narrows off Highway 71, or from Maybrun Road, 10km north of Sioux Narrows off Highway 71. Both Cameron and Maybrun roads are unsealed but accessible year-round. The Cameron and Maybrun Roads require travel permits from the Ministry of National Resources.

The closest community is Sioux Narrows, Ontario, with a population of approximately 300. Sioux Narrows is located approximately 28 km west of the Property on Highway 71. Sioux Narrows is a forestry and tourism-oriented community and could be a source of some exploration and mining equipment, supplies and personnel.

The area is serviced by Highway 71 extending south to Fort Frances on Highway 11 (a distance of approximately 120 km), and north to Highway 17 just east of Kenora (a distance of 90 km). Rail transportation is available via the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways – both lines pass approximately equidistant to the Property along Highways 11 and 17. Several small lakes, ponds and streams on the claim group could supply limited quantities of water. Electrical power is available along Highway 71.

The physiography of the Property is typical of the Canadian Precambrian Shield uplands of Ontario. The topography is characterized by glacial features such as moraines and eskers with subordinate outcrop as topographic highs. Relief is low (less than 35 m) and steep drop offs on outcrops often indicate fault structures.

The climate of the Kenora region is characterised as continental. Temperatures in January range from -11.3°C (max) to -20.5°C (min) and in July the maximum temperature is 24.4°C with a low of 14.9°C (Canadian Climate normals 1981-2010). Precipitation is moderate, with an average of 56 cm of rainfall and 164 cm of snow per annum. Frost penetration can be as deep as two metres. The driest period is February through to April.

Vegetation comprises mixed arboreal forest with low lying areas of cedar swamp and bog. Minor plantation timber stands are present, as logging has been extensively carried out and much of the forest is regrowth. Lakes account for a significant proportion of the project area (40%). The average depth is from 10 m to 30 m, with thick layers of organic mud overlaying glacial till sediments of up to 20 m in thickness.

The land holdings are sufficient to allow for exploration and development.  The potential surface rights holdings, that can be triggered when the claims go to lease, are sufficient for development of infrastructure to sustain a mining operation.
