Highlights to date
- Phase 1 drilling at Superior has been successfully completed for a total of 2,100m in 6 drill holes.
- Drilling intersected mineralization, alteration and primary structures, targeted through the re-interpretation of historic geological and geophysical data.
- Core logging and sampling of the Phase 1 drilling is underway, with initial assay results expected within the next two to four weeks.
Kerem Usenmez, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with the preliminary results from Phase I of drilling which primarily targeted the largely untested, near surface VMS horizon, as well as additional targets outside the current resource. These targets were established by our team as highly prospective through re-interpretation of historic geological and geophysical data. So far, every borehole has intersected interesting structures, alteration, and mineralization. Currently, the untested VMS horizon between the past producing, high grade Upper Pick Lake Zone and the historic surface Anderson showing is the highest priority target. Strategically defining a near surface extension above the current Pick Lake Deposit will not only expand the current resource, but also allow for quicker access to ore as we move towards opening the mine."
