Pancontinental Resources Corp.

Nickel, Cobalt, Copper and Gold Exploration in North America

This Pancontinental Resources Corporation profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*


Led by its experienced and successful team, Pancontinental Resources Corporation (TSXV:PUC) is a Canadian-based exploration company with a growing portfolio of strategic gold and battery metals projects located in proven mining districts with excellent infrastructure.

Pancontinental’s current focus is on prospective nickelcoppercobalt properties in low-risk areas with existing resources and/or in proximity to producing or former mines. The company’s portfolio includes five projects in northern Ontario: Montcalm, Nova, Gambler and Strachan. Each project is adjacent to or near the former Montcalm nickel-copper-cobalt mine, which is located 65 kilometers northwest of Timmins, Ontario.

As for the St. Laurent project, it has an advanced nickel-copper-cobalt-gold-platinumpalladium target. The property is located 50 kilometers south of Detour Lake mine and 20 kilometers southwest of Casa Berardi mine.

Pancontinental is currently conducting exploration programs at the Montcalm and St. Laurent projects. After evaluating of exploration data from its Q1 2019 fieldwork on Montcalm, the geological team has identified a new target area, known as the Hook zone, that hosts a cluster of electromagnetic anomalies. Pancontinental is conducting induced polarization and geophysical surveys at the zone and expects to follow this up with a round of drilling.

Exploration fieldwork at St. Laurent commenced in July 2019 following evaluation of historical exploration work. Work to date indicates that there is the potential for a classic nickel-copper-cobalt massive sulfide target on the property. The characteristics of the mineralization at the St. Laurent project are similar to what has been found at the Montcalm mine.

Pancon also holds a 100-percent interest in the Jefferson gold project. The property is located 15 kilometers along-trend from the Haile gold mine and surrounds the former Brewer gold mine property, on the prolific and underexplored Carolina slate belt in South Carolina, US.
