Hilltop Property

Northwest Territories



Click to enlarge
LOCATION
The Property is located in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, ~180 km northeast of Yellowknife and ~45 km southwest of the Snap Lake Diamond Mine

SIZE
4 mineral leases and 8 mineral claims covering ~11,060 ha

PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS
The Hilltop Property hosts a 7 km long kimberlite indicator mineral ("KIM") train that contains high pressure garnets sourced from within the diamond stability field. A recent analysis of KIM chemistry and geophysical targets have identified two main areas for further exploration, both areas are located up-ice of the KIM train and have potential to host a new kimberlite discovery.



EXPLORATION
Till sampling has defined a 7 km long kimberlite indicator mineral train with favourable mineral chemistry and kimberlite fragments scattered throughout the area. A geochemical analysis of garnets found within the mineral train indicates that they were formed within the diamond stability field at pressures up to 64 kbar. Historical exploration on the Hilltop Property included surficial and bedrock geological mapping, airborne and ground geophysics, till sampling and diamond drilling.

OWNERSHIP
The Hilltop Property is owned 100% by Canterra Minerals Corporation.
