USN currently have two major projects:
The Snowbird Project consists of two blocks of claims (Kasba and Wendy) comprising 214 km˛ within the Snowbird Tectonic Zone, located 625 km northwest of the city of Thompson, Manitoba, Canada. Known nickel and gold deposits such as Nickel King (Ni), Ferguson Lake (Ni-Cu), and Meadowbank (Au) occur within or near the Snowbird Tectonic Zone, interpreted to be a suture between two Archaean crustal blocks, Rae and Hearne, which form part of the Churchill craton.
The primary exploration targets are magmatic nickel-copper ± platinum group element (PGE) sulphide deposits and shear-zone-hosted gold deposits. The geology of the project area is folded and contorted amphibolite to granulite- grade Archaean gneisses, granitoids and minor amphibolites. Gabbros and rare ultramafic bodies of unknown age intrude the Archaean rocks.
The Mid-Continent Project is located in south western Minnesota, USA, and consists of two target areas, Cottonwood and Renville West, totalling 17.8 km˛, which are held by exploration agreements (in respect of 29 tenements) and mining leases (in respect of two tenements) with 31 private mineral and surface owners.
