EAST KEMPTVILLE TIN
The 100% owned East Kemptville Tin-Indium Project is located approximately 45 kilometres northeast of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in the vicinity of the former East Kemptville Tin Mine.
The property consists of four contiguous exploration licenses and a Special License covering an aggregate of over 10,000 ac (4,000 ha) and 880 ac (356 ha) respectively and is easily accessible by a secondary highway. The Special License requires Avalon to secure permission from current landowners to access the closed East Kemptville mine site.
The Warren Township Anorthosite Project is an advanced specialty industrial minerals development opportunity located 100 km west of Timmins, Ontario in the Porcupine Mining Division. The project property consists of a 21 year, 673.7 ha renewable surface and mining rights Lease. The Lease is 100% owned by Avalon and is renewable for further terms.
The Lease covers a portion of the Shawmere Anorthosite Complex that hosts a significant resource of high purity anorthosite, consisting of up to 98% high calcium plagioclase feldspar. Anorthosite is an unusual mafic igneous intrusive rock consisting of greater than 90% plagioclase feldspar. Previous work has demonstrated that this material can be processed to produce a high quality calcium feldspar raw material for the manufacture of reinforcing glass fibre and other industrial products, such as mineral fillers.
The property is located near road and rail infrastructure and is close to markets in southern Ontario and the northeastern United States.
