Drilling to begin at Copper North Mining’s Thor project in B.C.

by Greg Klein | September 9, 2016

In a program announced early last month, Copper North Mining TSXV:COL has a rig in place at its Thor project in northwestern British Columbia. The first hole will target Thor East Area 3, which hosts “numerous small veins with copper and gold, and extensive alteration zones,” the company stated.

Another hole will test the Thor West Area, defined by an induced polarization anomaly covering two kilometres by 2.5 kilometres, flanking a road to the former Kemess mine. Another Thor West hole has been planned 1.5 kilometres away, on the anomaly’s northern section.

Further drilling depends on results for these initial holes.

The campaign’s goal is porphyry copper-gold mineralization near the past-producing Kemess South open pit and mill complex, now within AuRico Metals’ (TSX:AMI) Kemess Underground gold-copper-silver property.

“The drill holes are very widely separated and may confirm the interpreted widespread mineral zones,” Copper North added. The company holds a 100% option on the approximately 20,000-hectare property.

In the Yukon, meanwhile, the flagship Carmacks copper project advances through the final stages of a PEA study. The company plans to improve on a 2014 PEA by factoring in gold and silver recovery.
