Located in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, ~265 km northeast of Yellowknife and ~20 km northwest of the Gahcho Kue Project
16 mineral claims covering ~16,998 ha
The Marlin Property is strategically located near the Gahcho Kue Project which is currently being advanced and developed by Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. and De Beers Canada, and is directly contiguous to the Kennady North Project which hosts the diamond-bearing Faraday and Kelvin kimberlites and the MZ kimberlite dykes.
The Marlin Property produced a 1.0 x 1.0 x 1.4 mm off-white, modified octahedral diamond, as well as several anomalous indicator minerals including pyropes and chromites in a till sample located on the southern end of the property. Historic exploration on Marlin has included surficial and geological bedrock mapping, airborne and ground geophysics and till sampling. Geochemical analysis of garnets found within the mineral trains indicate some were formed within the diamond stability field at pressures greater than 42 kbar. A 1,500 line km gravity gradiometer and magnetic survey was flown over the northern portion of the Marlin Property identifying multiple high-definition geophysical anomalies.
The Marlin Property is owned 100% by Canterra Minerals Corporation.
