The RUM Project encompasses four properties located in the Lac Rocher District of Central Quebec.(Click here for location map)

The properties – RUM North, South, Southeast and Central – cover a series of untested airborne magnetic and electromagnetic anomalies interpreted to represent mafic to ultramafic intrusive members of the Lac Rocher Intrusive Suite which are prospective for nickel-copper-cobalt-PGE deposits.

The RUM properties were acquired by staking by Balmoral in the mid-2018 and the focus of a detailed airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey in late 2018.

Exploration Target

The exploration target for the RUM Project is mafic-ultramafic intrusive hosted high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt-PGE mineralization associated with pipe-like intrusive bodies in Archean terranes. The best known Canadian examples would include the high-grade, former producing deposits of the Lynn Lake camp of Manitoba, which were foundation assets for Sherritt International, and the Eagle's Nest deposit located in the "Ring of Fire" area of Ontario. These high-grade deposits are typically associated with relatively small intrusive bodies with distinct magmatic chemistry, and can reach over 20 million tonnes in size.
