Since 2016, Probe Metals has been consolidating its land position in the highly prospective Val-d’Or East area in the province of Quebec. The Val-d’Or East project is a district-scale land package comprising 436 square kilometers and represents one of the largest land holdings in the Val-d’Or mining camp. The property is host to three past producing mines (Beliveau Mine, Monique Mine and Bussiere Mine) and falls along four regional mine trends, including 14 kilometres of strike length along the prolific Cadillac Break. Val-d’Or East is situated in a politically stable and low-cost mining environment that hosts numerous active producers and mills. The Project benefits from world-class mining infrastructures, expertise for underground and open-pit operations and highly qualified manpower. It can be easily reached by the roads that are well maintained in all seasons. Several mining operations and gold mills are currently active in the area. No environmental issues are noticed from past exploration onsite.
In May, 2020, Probe staked an additional 179 claims contiguous to the Pascalis and Megiscane-Tavernier properties on its Val-d’Or East Project in Quebec. The new claims add 101 square kilometres to the current project land package, increasing it from 334 square kilometres to 436 square kilometres and extend the Megiscane-Tavernier property to the southeast (146 claims) and the Pascalis property to the northwest (33 claims). The new claims were staked along gold structures identified during regional exploration work and add highly prospective ground to the project. The Val-d’Or East land package represents one of the largest consolidated land packages in the Val-d’Or mining camp.
All the mining titles are 100% controlled and are in good standing.
