Nicola Mining announces exploration objectives for Craigmont Mine

·1 min read

Nicola Mining, the company who owns the old Craigmont Mine site on Aberdeen Rd., has announced its 2021 Exploration Objectives at the New Craigmont Copper Project.

Last year, the company applied for a multi-year area-based (MYAB) exploration permit that would facilitate a five-year exploration plan.

The 2021 program includes five new trenches, the reactivation of six historic trenches and up to 21 drill holes. Trenching is aimed at developing three target areas where copper occurrences have been observed but have not been drill tested.

The 2021 season has been divided into two phases, with the second phase contingent on results from phase one.

A complete explanation of both phase one and phase two of the 2021 program is available in a report by Yahoo Finance found here.
