Strongbow's nickel exploration strategy is focused on investigating the southern portions of the Snowbird Tectonic Zone (SBTZ) for magmatic Ni-Cu-Co deposits. The SBTZ is a major crustal scale structure that is highly prospective for magmatic sulphide nickel deposits. This northeast-trending structure can be traced for over 2,800 km from the Rocky Mountains to Hudson Bay. There is evidence from regional geological and geophysical datasets that the SBTZ has been intruded by numerous mafic-ultramafic rocks. Some of these intrusions are known to host nickel-copper sulphide mineralization, including Strongbow's Nickel King deposit. Strongbow has also identified at least 15 additional nickel copper sulphide showings located near the Nickel King deposit and further to the south in Saskatchewan. Additional magmatic Ni deposits outside of Strongbow's exploration properties along the SBTZ include the past producing Rankin Inlet Nickel mine and the advanced Ferguson Lake Ni-Cu-Co-PGE deposit in Nunavut, as well as the Axis Lake deposit in Saskatchewan.
Strongbow maintains a 100% interest in approximately 40,000 hectares of mineral claims and mining leases located along a 240 km strike length of the southern SBTZ, straddling the Saskatchewan-Northwest Territories border. These properties are collectively part of Strongbow's Snowbird nickel project.
