Mr. John has vast prospecting experience. His project – which involves around stromatolite, which are algae fossils – is new and unusual for the CMEB. The Board is open to opportunities to develop different mineral resources. Stromatolite is usually used in artistic applications.
The stromatolite in this project is around 550 million years old and is present in several rocks, mostly granite. These rocks are located in the area of the Cree Nation of Mistissini, and the site is easily accessible.
