- Three relatively undeformed mafic-ultramafic intrusions with well-preserved igneous textures are mapped in the newly staked area around Garden. These are interpreted to be post-greenstone belt late Archean in age based on geological relationships
- The Garden west block hosts a 700 m E-W x 400 m N-S mafic-ultramafic intrusion, including olivine-clinopyroxenite and medium to coarse grained hornblende gabbro phases along its eastern contact. Northeast striking and apparent northwest dipping igneous laying has been observed near the contact.
- The east block is dominated by olivine-gabbronorite in two intrusions, likely formed in a primitive back-arc setting. The major element abundances of these rocks are comparable to gabbroic rocks at the Lac des Iles mine.
- Both intrusions exhibit significant magnetic responses with coincident EM conductors in historical geophysical surveys that have yet to adequately explored. The anomalies are mostly strike limited, showing an EM signature on and at the edges of magnetic highs, further indicating the potential for Ni-Cu (Co-PGE) mineralization.
