MANN INTRUSIVE COMPLEX (Ni-Cu- Pt-Pd- Co Potential in the Timmins Area)
New Found Gold’s Mann property encompasses 6896 hectares with 414 cell units lying
approximately 50 km northwest of Timmins, Ontario. The property is easily accessible by all-
season roads and covers almost the entirety of the Mann Mafic/Ultramafic Intrusive Complex.
The ground staked during December 2017 was one of the last big “ground staking” projects
completed in Ontario prior to conversion to “map staking”.
The Mann Intrusive is the largest layered mafic/ultramafic complex in the Northeastern Ontario
area. It extends for 40km along it’s long axis with thicknesses up to 3 km. The intrusive is a
peridotite-pyroxenite- troctolite-olivine gabbro sill. The chemical affinity is a high Mg-Fe
tholeiite sill/dyke and the geochemistry of the ultramafic rocks are similar to that of the rocks
that host the near-by (approximately 15 km south) Dundonald Alexo and Kelex Ni-Cu deposits.
Tholeiitic sills/dykes host some of the world’s largest Ni deposits which includes Voiseys Bay,
Noril’sk-Talnach (Russia), Jinchuan (China) and Kabanga (Tanzania).
The Mann Intrusive Complex is much larger in area and hosts more Ni occurrences than the two
other Ni hosting regions in the Timmins area, Dundonald and Langmuir, both of which had
operating Ni mines. There are 22 known Ni-Cu occurrences in the Mann Intrusive area with grab
samples up to 5% Ni. Though exploration on the property dates back to 1917 there has been no
comprehensive, modern exploration conducted over the entirety of the Mann Intrusive. New
found gold’s first stage exploration plans includes an airborne VTEM survey to cover the
entirety of the property and follow-up ground IP and/or Max-Min surveys to isolate targets.
