GéoMégA is a Montreal-based exploration company focused on the discovery and development of economic deposits of Clean Technology metals in Quebec. The Province of Quebec is one of the world's most attractive jurisdictions for mineral exploration and development. Significant tax credits (40% of exploration expenditures reimbursed), experienced work force and validity of mining claims are all distinct advantages. As society emerges from fossil energy to a more efficient eco-friendly source, GéoMégA believes that the drivers of the 21st century Clean Technology metals are the Rare Earth Elements (“REE”). These elements are critical to clean energy technologies (electric vehicles, wind power turbines, light-emitting diode light source), existing and emerging high-tech uses (cell phones, fiber optics, lasers, hard disk drives) and numerous defense applications. These elements are the foundation of the 21st century's economic sustainability and durable development.

GéoMégA is a Montreal-based exploration company focused on the discovery and development of economic deposits of Rare Earth Elements in Quebec. Strategic metals are those metals which are required for the economic development and national defense of a country. As society emerges from fossil energy to a more efficient eco-friendly source, GéoMégA believes the 21st century strategic metals are the Rare Earth Elements, Niobium and Tantalum. Critical for clean energy technologies and high-tech applications, these elements are the foundation of an economic sustainability and durable development.
The Montviel property comprises 159 map-designated cells, for a total of 8830 hectares (ha).
There are no environmental liabilities pertaining to theproperty nor is the property subject to any litigation; the only permits required to conduct work are theforestry management permits. There is no mining infrastructure on the property.
The property is located in Montviel township and is covered by NTS sheets 32F/15 and 32F/16. It islocated approximately 100 km by road from the town of Lebel-sur-Quevillon, where services and manpower are available. The property is easily accessible via a network of logging roads, after a 60km drive from highway 113, which connects Val d’Or and Chibougamau. Heavy equipment can be mobilized by truck directly to the property.
The property shows a relatively flat topography, with a maximum elevation of 315 m above sea leveland the lowest point shows an elevation of 290 m. The main hydrographic feature is the NomansRiver, which crosses the property in a SW-NE direction. It flows to the NE, where it joins the Inconnue River, then the Maicasagi River and ultimately the Maicasagi Lake. The property is covered by a mix of swamp and forest, the latter consisting mainly of black spruce.
The area lies at the limit between the subarctic and humid continental climates. This climate zone is characterized by long, cold winters and short, cool summers. Daily average temperatures range from -20°C in January to +16.1°C in July. Break-up usually occurs in early April, and freeze-up in November.
These are normal climatic conditions for the Abitibi region, where exploration work is usually conducted year round. Finally, at this latitude, there is no permafrost.
