The Company is focused on exploring and developing its sizable holdings in the Ambler Mining District in Alaska. The most advanced projects in this prospective district are Arctic and Bornite.
Arctic is one of the highest-grade copper deposits known in the world with an average grade of 6% copper equivalent*.
The Arctic deposit (“Arctic”), is a polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit located approximately 470 kilometers northwest of the City of Fairbanks, Alaska. Current activities are focussed on engineering and environmental site investigation studies that will form the basis for completing a future pre-feasibility study.KEY FACTS
