The VanLab Property
The Vanlab property covers a portion of the Labrador trough approximately 200 km northwest of Schefferville. Historical public data obtained from the files of the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles-Québec indicates the presence of various minerals. The main potential interest includes vanadium, copper, cobalt and scandium. One historical sample reported 6% Vanadium (showing Surprise 2, GM41311). The result from this sample has not been independently verified by Vanlab. It is listed in documents filed with the Ministère. The entire claim block has been surveyed by modern airborne electromagnetics, magnetics and radiometrics. Vanlab obtained this public data from the ministry files and reprocessed it to identify specific targets for a 2023 field program. The primary exploration focus will be vanadium, copper and cobalt.
