Ditem Explorations Progresses Summer Drilling Program at Lac Henri Property

Ditem Explorations is making progress in the summer exploration program at the Lac Henri property. This exploration at the Lac Henri property will include the rare earth showing that was identified during 2009 and will contain a geological mapping, ground radiometric survey and prospecting with sampling and trenching. The company is expecting that this drilling program will follow on the outlined mineralized zones.

The property includes 65 claim cells, which covers 3,435 ha in total and is situated in north central Quebec that is about 350 km northeast of Chibougamau. Basement rocks of the Archean Superior Province Epervanche Complex, which are extremely folded, containing quartz-biotite-feldspar gneiss and a migmatite complex encroached by pegmatites and younger granites lies under this Lac Henri property. The location of the property’s southern boundary is at around 2 km from the Otish Proterozoic Sedimentary Basin’s western rim.

The prospecting programs and the following laboratory analysis of the outcrop samples in 2009 showed the major values in the rare earth elements. Rare earth mineralization is connected with altered biotite-quartz-feldspar granite and Archean granitic gneiss.
