Exploration activities commenced at the beginning of June with almost 2,000 meters of drilling already completed at the Bornite Project with three rigs from Major Drilling America, Inc. currently in operation at site.

The $7.0 million engineering and environmental program has commenced at Arctic with two rigs from Tuuq Drilling LLC, a subsidiary of NANA Development Corporation. Work at Arctic commenced in late June and is completing feasibility-level geotechnical and hydrological work.

The Company expects to complete the feasibility study in the first half of 2020.
