Geophysical Prospecting for Antimony (and Chromite) in the Southern Quesnel Terrane, British Columbia, Canada

Antimony is classified as a strategic element due to its high relevance for many military and technical applications, e.g. its use in fire suppressants and lead-acid batteries. Canada has currently no operational mine to produce antimony and about 90% of the world production originates from China and east Asia. This project will develop a geophysical prospecting program to explore for antimony, which has been discovered in samples taken from the industry partnerÂ’s mineral claim in the southern Quesnel terrane, northwest of Kelowna, British Columbia.
