Nickel, copper, PGE

Magmatic massive sulphide

Michigan, USA; road accessible

50.1% Altius & 49.9% Bitterroot Resources; 64,800 Ha


  • An easily accessible, significantly large project comprising free-hold mineral rights located in Michigan’s portion of the Mid-Continental Rift nickel province.
  • Potential for similar conduit-style magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization as found at Lundin Mining’s Eagle Mine located 65 Km to the east (
  • Fertile nickel-sulphide environment indicated by the presence of mafic dike swarms and primitive ultramafic intrusions and sulphide-bearing country rocks within, and peripheral to, the project area.
  • In 2015, Altius commissioned a 4,562 line-km VTEM Plus survey over much of the project area – identifying 52 EM (± coincidental Mag) conductors of which 9 were ranked high priority.
  • Nine EM ± Mag anomalies remain open and warrant follow-up by ground geophysics and drilling.
