The Ontario-based mineral exploration company is interested in nickel, copper and PGM projects. In September 2012, the natural resource miner acquired the Aer-Kidd Property from CaNickel Mines Ltd.
It is a nickel-copper-PGM project situated nearly 20 kilometers southwest of Sudbury, Ontario. Originally, the mineralization at the Aer-Kidd site was identified in the 1880s.
The area experienced near-surface mining operations from 1916 to 1968. The Aer-Kidd Property hosts known polymetallic mineralization and spans a 1.3-kilometer area of the mineral-rich Worthington Offset Dyke.
SPC Nickel Corp. owns and operates the Lockerby East (LKE) Property situated at a distance of some 20 kilometers west of Sudbury. The property consists of nickel, copper, platinum and palladium mineralization and hosts two primary deposits:
