The project is a first of kind collaboration between Pan American Energy, Avalon Advanced Materials, and the University of Manitoba to advance the understanding of the regional scale, structural framework in the Separation pegmatite field and assess the state of strain of the pegmatite intrusions.
Calgary AB – Pan American Energy Corp. (the “Company” or “Pan American”) (CSE: PNRG) (OTC PINK: PAANF) (FRA: SS6) is pleased to announce its participation in a UAV-borne magnetic survey to be flown by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (“EarthEx”) for Pan American and Avalon Advanced Materials Inc. (“Avalon”) at the Big Mack and Big Whopper Project near Kenora, Ontario. The survey is estimated to comprised 725 line-km with spacing of 25 m and tie line spacing of 250 m.
The work program is focused on advancing an understanding of the structural framework and strain in the emplaced pegmatites in the Separation Rapids area. The Department of Earth Sciences, University of Manitoba (“U of M”) have done geological research and are interested in making use of the geophysical data for research purposes. Flying a larger area provides more structural context, and is expected to significantly aid in the interpretation of data. The cost of the survey is being shared by both companies, proportioned to their land holding size, and both companies will be provided access with all results. The U of M and EarthEx are also granted use of the data for research, publication and case study purposes.

Jason Latkowcer, CEO and Director, comments, “This is a wonderful example of collaboration between industry peers, industry experts, and academia. Through this joint effort approach, we are able reduce mobilization and demobilization costs and environmental impact, map further faster, and will be able to share in the interpretation and analysis of the results – a true win-win-win scenario. This type of geophysical-geological work is an important step leading up to our 2023 drill program at the Big Mack Property while also contributing to an improved understanding of the region. On behalf of Pan American, I would like to thank Donald Bubar (Avalon), Daniel Card (EarthEx), and Alfredo Camacho (U of M). We are looking forward to analyzing these results which will allow the Company to use more data to plan future exploration and drilling programs to explore areas of interest.”
Avalon’s President & CEO, Don Bubar, states, “A detailed aeromagnetic survey focused on better understanding local structural geology could help identify other LCT pegmatite targets in the Separation Rapids area.”
Alfredo Camacho, Head, Department of Earth Sciences, U of M, comments, “The Department of Earth Sciences, University of Manitoba is delighted to be collaborating in a geophysical-geological research project with Pan American and Avalon to develop a scientific understanding of the distribution of the rare-element mineralization and other pegmatite types and granites on a regional scale in the Separation Rapids pegmatite field. The research will provide significant information about potential pathways and structural corridors into which the pegmatites intrude in deformed terranes.”
Daniel Card, President of EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc., states, “At a time when pegmatite exploration has become so important, collaboration between academia, industry professionals and innovative explorers such as Pan American Energy Corp and Avalon Advanced Materials Inc, is sure to provide great steps toward the definition of a robust exploration strategy for Lithium bearing pegmatites and other critical minerals. We thank all parties involved and look forward to what will be a very rewarding project.”
