Gwen Project

Northwest Territories



Click to enlarge
LOCATION
The Project is located in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, ~260 km northeast of Yellowknife and ~30 km east of the Snap Lake Diamond Mine

SIZE
11 mineral claims covering ~11,500 ha

PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS
The Gwen Project contains two diamond-bearing kimberlite pipes, CL-25 and CL-174, discovered in 1994-95 by Winspear Resources Ltd. Kimberlite indicator minerals on the property indicate the potential for the discovery of new kimberlite pipes on the Gwen Project. This is supported by knowledge that kimberlite pipes commonly occur in clusters.

EXPLORATION
Historic exploration on the Gwen Project included surficial and geological bedrock mapping, airborne geophysics, till sampling and diamond drilling. Till sampling has identified two kimberlite indicator mineral trains apparently sourced from within the property.

OWNERSHIP
The Gwen Project is owned 100% by Canterra Minerals Corporation.
