"Rottenstone" Introduction


  • The Project Hosts the Historic Rottenstone Nickel-Copper-Cobalt + PGE Deposit & Mine
  • Independent “Exploration Target Potential” of 0.5 to 1Mt, which refers to numerous conceptual deposits with similar size and grade of the Rottenstone Deposit. 
  • Historic Grades of 3.28% Ni, 1.83% Cu and 9.26 g/t PGE + Au. Recent Assaying and Metallurgy Suggest up to 900 ppm Co associated with Rottenstone-type ore.
  • Opportunities
    • Near Term Resource Opportunity
      • Rottenstone Deposit Extension
      • Mine Tailings Reclamation Potential (2.4 g/t AuEq)
    • Multiple “Rottenstone -type” Deposits
      • Potential  to define Multiple, Rottenstone-type,  High Grade, 50,000  to 500,000 Tonne Deposits within the Fathom Property
      • Analogous to a Raglan Geologic Model / Setting
      • The “Fingerprint” associated with the Rottenstone Mine, as defined by Geochemistry and Geophysics, occurs throughout the Project Area
    • The Source
      • Rottenstone Nickel content and associated Metal Tenor indicative of a significant magmatic event  – the Source for the Rottenstone Deposit
      • Fathom Targeting Multiple High Grade deposits Resulting in +1 Million Tonnes of Ore

The Rottenstone property is located approximately 130 kilometers north-northeast of La Ronge, SK, and lies geologically within the Rottenstone Domain.  Access to the property is by helicopter or fixed wing aircraft from float bases in La Ronge or Missinipe, SK. A winter road  was constructed for  the Rottenstone mining operation and the remnant trail has been used to haul diamond drill and associated equipment to the property 2000 – 2008.  

Fathom currently holds nine (9) mineral claims totaling 22,313 Hectares (ha) which collectively form the Rottenstone property. Fathom owns 100% interest in the Rottenstone Property; certain portions of the Property are subject to underlying royalties, which can be partially purchased by Fathom at the company’s discretion.
