Ontario: Tyko Property - Copper-Nickel

Previous work indicates high potential for Voisey- style feeder dyke Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization. The Tyko Project is Archean aged, hosted by Mafic-ultramafic rocks which have been disrupted by the Black Pic Batholith with road and trail access and power and rail infrastructure close by.


  • North Western Ontario, 25km north of the Hemlo mining complex
  • Road and trail access
  • 243 km2 Claim package
  • Powerlines to the south, Rail lines to the north
  • Mining friendly jurisdiction

Building on Historic Drilling at Tyko North (RJ) Showing

  • TK-16-006: 13.4m=1.03% Ni, 0.55 Cu%, 0.75ppm PGM+Au
  • TK-16-010: 6.2m=1.06% Ni, 0.35 Cu%, 0.65ppm PGM+Au
  • TK-16-011: 6m =1.47% Ni, 0.49 Cu%, 0.71ppm PGM+Au

Winter 2016 Drill Program

14 drillholes for a total of 1,780m of drilling. Expands historic showings with best grades and lengths of Ni/Cu/PGE grades to date.

Most recent results expanding Tyko Showings with Significant intercepts included:

The Tyko showing

  • 4.14 m of 1.09% Ni, 0.77% Cu, 0.42 g/t Pt, 0.42 g/t Pd (TK-06-01)
  • Working to connect the two deposits, (1.6km separation)
  • Testing a number of new VTEM and Magnetic survey targets

Smoke Lake

  • Smoke Lake was discovered in late November 2020 with the first hole (TK20-015) of drill program returning massive Ni-Cu sulphides at 30 meters depth. To date a total of 36 holes totalling ~3,400 meters have been drilled on the Smoke Lake Zone returning up to 9.9% Ni_Eq over 3.8 Meters (8.1% Ni, 2.9% Cu, 0.11% Co, 0.61g/t Pd, 0.71g/t Pt, and 0.02g/t Au).
  • Palladium One was awarded the 2020 “Bernie Schnieders Discovery of the Year Award” for the Smoke Lake discovery. The award, presented by the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association (NWOPA), recognizes an exceptional discovery in Northwestern Ontario during the previous calendar year.
