The Sudbury North Range project consists of three contiguous properties that overlie approximately 40 km of favourable footwall stratigraphy in the prolific Sudbury Mining Camp.
Sudbury is one of the largest mining camps in the world, has been mining Ni-Cu ores for more than 100 years, and continues to make new discoveries of large, high value sulphide deposits. Significant recent discoveries, such as Xstrata's Nickel Rim Mine – the highest grade producer in Sudbury – have re-focused exploration to the under-explored footwall of the Sudbury Complex.
The large North Range project overlies the two distinct geological environments that are the target of footwall exploration work: 1) Offset Dyke; and 2) Sudbury Breccia-associated sulphides environments. On nearby properties, JV partner Wallbridge Mining has successfully discovered two new Offset Dykes and large zones of Sudbury Breccia.
