SnapshotAbaxx is the owner of the LabMag and KeMag iron ore assets, resulting from the reverse take-over of New Millennium Iron Corp, the Company is not currently pursuing any viable economic development. During the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the Company became aware that the market for Green commodities may include iron ore at some point in the future and this may offer an opportunity. At this juncture the company has no plans to develop these properties and may entertain offers from third parties if any interest is shown over the next fiscal period.

Summary:

The Property is located in the western margin of the Labrador Trough that extends for more than 1,000 km, from Ungava Bay to Lake Pletipi in Quebec. The belt is about 100 km wide in its central part and narrows considerably to the north and south. The Grenville Front crosses the southern part of the Trough. The rocks in the Labrador Trough are subdivided into an upper volcanic-dominated suite (Doublet Group) and a lower sedimentary sequence (Knob Lake Group) that includes the Sokoman Formation hosting the iron formations found in the region.

The KéMag iron deposit consists of magnetite Banded Iron Formation (“BIF”) of the Lake Superior type. BIFs are sedimentary rocks composed of alternating mm- to cmscale beds of quartz (chert or jasper) and iron oxides (predominantly magnetite and hematite). Variable amounts of gangue minerals, mostly silicates, carbonates and sulphides are present. Banded iron formations have greater than 15 % iron content and represent the principal sources of iron throughout the world and are mined in the Great Lakes region of the United States. The Lake Superior-type BIF are associated with typical shelf-type sedimentary rocks with minimal volcanic input and most formed during the Paleoproterozoic era.
