New Age Metals Inc. (TSXV:NAM) announced that it has chosen WSP Canada Inc. (Sudbury office) to head up the new resource model for its River Valley PGMs project. The work will be directed and supervised by Todd McCracken.
As quoted in the press release:
The last technical report on the River Valley Project was in 2012 which was also carried out by Todd McCracken (under Tetra Tech), thus ensuring technical continuity. Since that date, the company has carried out several drill programs, made a new PGM discovery on the project, carried out a ground IP geophysical survey (News Release: June 19th, 2017) and obtained the River Valley Extension (News Release: Oct 5th, 2016). The extension ground (Figure 1) adds approximately 4 kilometres of mineralized strike length to the River Valley PGM Project. It has approximately 100 drill holes carried out by the previous claim holder. The new resource estimate will incorporate all the data as well as the present drilling (News Release: July 18th, 2107).
