The Overflowing project is located in western Manitoba, within 10 km of the Saskatchewan border. The project is owned 100% by Saturn and is over 2,500 acres in size. The Overflowing property hosts two major coal seams which were discovered in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
The Karolina coal seam ranges in true thickness (no partings) from 12 to 89 meters and in depth from 13 to 45 meters making it one of the largest coal seams ever discovered in Canada. Tonnage of the Karolina coal seam is still not known, with current strike being approximately 600 meters and still open in three directions.
The Thunder coal seam has a thickness of 26 meters and a depth of 15 meters. Tonnage of the Thunder coal seam is still not known, with only a single drill hole completed into the target. The Thunder is still open in all directions.
Coal quality of the Karolina coal seam ranges in quality from 8,800 BTU/lb to 10,300 BTU/lb (air dried) with an average ash content of 18% (as received) and an average sulphur content of 1.5% (as received). No washability tests have been completed on the Karolina coal seam to date. Coal quality of the Thunder coal seam ranges in quality from 7,700 BTU/lb to 9,600 BTU/lb with an average sulphur content of 1% in the shallowest 8 meters of the coal seam. No washability tests have been completed on the Thunder coal seam to date.
The Karolina coal seam and Thunder coal seam lay within 18 km of active rail.
