ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (GMX ? Toronto Stock Exchange, G1MN ? Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Berlin, Munich, Tradegate, Lang & Schwarz, LS Exchange, TTMzero, Düsseldorf and Quotrix Düsseldorf Stock Exchanges and GLBXF ? OTCQX International in the US) is pleased to inform shareholders that it has acquired 100% interest in the Pointe-Aux-Morts dolomite deposit located approximately 5 km west of Havre St-Pierre, Quebec, on the north shore of the St-Lawrence River.
Previous work by QIT Iron and Titanium in 1980-1981 consisted of 56 drill holes which outlined a historical non-NI 43-101 compliant resource of +23,405,000 tonnes grading 20.5% MgO, 30.5% CaO and 0.92% SiO2 (QIT-Fer et Titane inc., Research Department, Mineral Science. Section, Project No. P-50-RP, Havre St-Pierre Dolomite Project, Exploration Final Report by D. Cossette, December 11, 1981).
A subsequent report by R.A. Marleau, D.Sc., dated September 30, 1992, titled "Preliminary Study for production of Magnesium Oxide ? Calcium from Carbonate Rock of Ternet, Havre St-Pierre, Middle North, Quebec" (GM. 51850, MRN, Sigeom) concluded that the deposit had good potential, readily available markets and a market for 400,000 tonnes per year for crushed 3/16-inch material. The report also suggested an additional annual market for 200,000 tonnes of magnesium oxide and calcium granules for electrical furnaces in the US in the region south of Lake Ontario.
While the reports are historical, they do indicate favorably on the economic potential of the deposit. Globex will recompile the historical information and see what work should be done to place its economic potential in the modern context as well as interact with all local stakeholders to inform and receive input as to the social acceptability of the project. This type of deposit has no sulphides, arsenic, asbestos, or other worrisome contaminants. End uses are wide ranging including in iron and steel making, soil pH control in agriculture, various refractory uses, making of float glass, water decontamination, cement, paint, etc.
