The Hidden Lake Lithium Property consists of two mineral claims, totalling approximately 1,100 hectares. It is located just north of Highway 4, approximately 40 km northeast of the city of Yellowknife, NT. The property is highly prospective for spodumene-bearing lithium pegmatites. The lithium potential of pegmatites within the Yellowknife area was first recognized in the mid-1950’s, when a number of the region’s pegmatites were sampled and found to contain highly anomalous concentrations of lithium. Prior to 1955, small shipments of lithium ore were reported for two deposits within the region (Mulligan, 1965; p.6). It was also at this time that several pegmatites were identified at the Hidden Lake Property.
At Hidden Lake, the LU#12 pegmatite was mapped and sampled over an approximate exposure that measures 10 by 300 meters. Seven samples were collected from surface trenches, and contained between 1.37 and 3.01% Li2O. The very high grades of lithium were attributed to observed concentrations of coarse-grained spodumene. Crystals up to 36 inches long were noted, with visual estimates across the dyke(s) in some places of 20 to 35%.
