Empire holds the right to acquire an 80% interest in the Graphite West Project, a highly prospective hydrothermal graphite exploration target. Key to this asset is location. Empire’s Graphite West Project is located immediately west and adjacent to Zenyatta Ventures’ Albany deposit, a highly prospective hydrothermal graphite deposit. Zenyatta’s Albany deposit is the only high purity hydrothermal graphite deposit being developed in the world.
Empire Rock Minerals is also exploring a prospective gold project, the GWYN LAKE PROPERTY located in NW Ontario, in the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Belt near Thunder Bay, Ontario to the east of the Buck Lake Property. The Beardmore–Geraldton Gold Belt has a successful and extensive mining history. This mineral-rich area is host to greenstone belt style gold mineralization, which are located within a banded iron formation. This abundant address is home to 19 former gold producers, which have produced over 4 million ounces in gold throughout Canadian history.
