The Fernie Mining Project (100% owned)

The Fernie mining project is made up of Marten, Barnes Lake, Crowsnest (Pump Station East), Mt. Lyne, Graves Lake and Bighorn. It’s located near Sparwood, the second largest Elk River community in British Columbia, and totals over 9033.15 hectares. The claims are all inside 40 kilometers of each other and are close to the East Kootenay coalfield. Adjacent to the project lies road and rail transportation to the west coast ports of Canada, as well as major rail and road systems of North America. Surveys revealed extensive sedimentary deposits on surface containing rock phosphate associated with the base of the Jurassic Fernie Formation.

In Recent History at Fernie

In July 2014, Fertoz received approval for a 10,000-ton extraction of bulk phosphate for the Fernie mining project. We harvested around 1,000 tons and drafted plans to extract more material utilizing the same bulk sample permit. Two years later, in the spring of 2016, we supplemented another 2,453 hectares to harvest direct application phosphate for Fernie. A report about Mt Lyne shows property’s potential for magnitude and phosphate grades that compare to Fertoz’s Crow’s Nest, Marten, and Barnes Lake properties. With this addition to the company’s existing Fernie project, the potential strike length of the phosphate-bearing horizon exceeds 25 kilometers.
