KITTSON COBALT PROPERTY, ONTARIO, CANADA
The Kittson Colbalt Property is located in the Kittson and Coleman Townships of the Larder Lake Mining Division, in Northeastern Ontario. The Kittson property is comprised of 5 unpatented mining claims totaling 68 units having a combined area of approximately 1,090 hectares, located approximately 8 km northwest of the town of Latchford and 120 km by road north of North Bay.
LOCATED WITHIN THE PROLIFIC COBALT MINING CAMP
The Kittson Cobalt Property is located within the prolific Cobalt mining camp, which has produced over 420 million ounces of silver. The Property includes two former mines, the Shakt Davies and Cobalt Kittson. These two mines saw limited production and differed from the typical Cobalt camp in that they possessed low silver grades, but were enriched in cobalt and gold. The Cobalt-Kittson mine operated from 1927 – 1930, and production records are scarce, however records from the 598-foot level show this level produced 600 hundred pounds of smaltite (a cobalt bearing mineral), and gold assays of up to 6.9 g/t were reported.
TWO PAST PRODUCING MINES ON THE PROPERTY
The Shakt Davies mine saw intermittent development from 1906 – 1964, with the bulk of the underground working completed between 1924 – 1926. No production records remain, however historic reports indicate values of 1.5% cobalt over 1.37 meters and select grab samples returning up to 4% cobalt and 93.3 g/t gold. More recent sampling (1987) of the mine waste pile by the Ontario Geological Survey personnel returned 0.25% cobalt, 0.75 % nickel, 0.05% copper and 3.4 g/t gold.
