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.

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.
