This is the port of Saguenay where trucks enter. It is a very open, expansive and clean area with no lineups. Does not seem to be busy at all.
This is at about km 83 is 2km north of Orignal and 2km south of Mirepoix. And where the road opens up and forks two ways. It would be an excellent spot to place a crushing facility. It is also about 2 km the other way from Vanel. So basically this is the area central to all 3 of the showings. There is a sand/gravel pit here where the municipality takes gravel and rock to fix the roads in the spring. We are sitting at about 50km from the last phase 2 hydro post and 65km from the last phase 3 hydro post.
I estimate that it could take about 1.5 – 1.75 hours to drive from the property to the port with not too much traffic at any time of day. With a full load truck, I think it might take 2.0 – 2.25 hours to get to port from the property. Maybe 2.5 hours maximum.
These are the showings of phosphate outcropings at Orignal, Mirepox, Vanel and we identified another spot along the road as well which has apparently been drilled years ago.
