Great Burnt

Project Highlights

Great Burnt
  • A 100% owned volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit in central Newfoundland’s highly prospective, base-metal-rich greenstone belt, consisting of 4 prospective zones:
    1. The Great Burnt Zone (Copper)
      • Indicated Resource of 381,300 tonnes at 2.68% Cu, Inferred Resource of 663,100 tonnes at 2.10% Cu* and open at depth
    2. South Pond “A” Zone (Copper, Gold)
    3. South Pond “B” Zone (Gold)
    4. End Zone Prospect (Copper)
  • Recent high grade copper discovery at the Great Burnt Zone - April 26, 2016, Spruce Ridge drills 7.5 metres of 9.45% copper, including 3 metres of 19.3% copper
  • Potential high-grade starter pit identified with 237,000 tonnes at 2.51% copper (undiluted) at the Great Burnt Zone, with relatively low capex
  • Near-surface gold present at South Pond “B” Zone– drill results include 28 metres at 1.16 g/t gold, 4.33 metres at 4.75 g/t gold
  • Road and airport accessible property, with mining infrastructure nearby – Great Burnt is 40km south east of Teck’s Duck Pond mine
  • Central Newfoundland is home to many well known mining camps dating back to the mid-19th century
  • 100% interest in mining lease and 5 contiguous mineral licences covering 148 claim units with an area of 4,065 ha, lease subject to 2% NSR in favour of Glencore
  • Significant exploration data including drill database of 17,000 meters and 2007 Aeroquest Mag/EM survey
