1844 Resources has a 100% undivided interest in the project situated 15km south-south east of the Municipality of Marsoui on the Gaspe Peninsula. The Lac Crystal Project is comprised of 44claims, for a total of 25sq/km.
The Lac Crystal showing, discovered in 1989 was the subject of several prospecting campaigns between 1990 and 1995. These included the completion of trenches, mapping, helicopter and ground geophysical work, soil geochemistry work and the addition of five targeted boreholes. Historical data shows NNO lineaments (N340 °), associated with shear zones accompanied by burrings and fracture filling by the late injection of quartz-carbonate-chalcopyrite, bornite-chalcosine as well as supergene development of malachite and azurite. The host rock to the mineralization consists of argillite and slate, an inter-ity of locally calcareous and dolomitic clay sandstone all cut by intrusives made up of rhyodacitic and monzonitic dykes having random directions between N210°- N270°. The type of mineralization indicated that the Crystal Lake showing was formed at low temperature, upon cooling of hydrothermal fluids containing copper in solution that migrated, used the N340 shear as a conduit and precipitate. The compilation of high-resolution aeromagnetic surveys carried out by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Quebec, indicates the presence of magnetic anomaly and the potential presence of a pluton and/or dyke swarms at depth that may be at the origin of copper hydrothermal fluids. A review and compilation of all this data indicates the potential of a porphyry or skarn/mantos style copper system in the vicinity of Petit Lac Crystal and adjacent to the pluton at depth. The mineralization is located at the heart of the N340 trending shear, refracted within sediments and intrusives, and occurs as masses of copper sulphides filling the fractures. Several grab samples, selected over the years, exhibited copper values, ranging from a simple copper anomaly to values over 43.8% Cu.
