The Decar project, 80 km north of Fort St. James, has produced favourable lab results.

According to 40 per cent owner First Point Minerals Corp. (a Vancouver-based company), lab tests have demonstrated the Decar ore containing the nickel-iron alloy awaruite can be upgraded in current ferronickel plants.

The concentrates were made using grinding and magnetic separation then gravity concentration. Part of the attraction of the ore found in the Decar project is the lack of environmental concerns related to processing awaruite. Toxic reagents were not needed to process the ore.
