- The Company has commenced a two-phase fall / winter 6,000-meter drill program. Phase-1 will end mid to late October and Phase-2 will commence late January 2022.
- The drilling activities are a follow-up to our winter 2021 drill program, BHEM targets identified in historic drilling, the property-wide gradient MAG survey, a recent gravity survey, localized TDEM surveys, the summer mapping and soil geochemistry program and areas where significant ultramafic intersections were drilled by previous operators of the property.
- Note that in a news release issued on August 30, 2021 the Company announced the commencement of an AirTEM survey at Albert Lake. Due to a technical issue this program has been postponed.
