2020 Q1 Highlights
- The 2019 Schaft Creek program focused on strengthening the 133ktpd scenario and the technical-engineering value opportunities identified by the 2018 Sizing and Infrastructure Alternatives study. The technical portion of the work program has been completed and preparation of the 2019 Schaft Creek report is underway.
- At Van Dyke, the 2020 resource estimate established for the first time an Indicated resource category, an increase in overall tonnage, an overall increase in recoverable copper grade and a substantial increase in recoverable copper metal.
- The Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Northern Fox Copper Inc., entered into a property sales agreement (subject to regulatory approval) with District Copper, where District Copper has agreed to sell all of its right, title and interest in and to the Eaglehead copper project (covering 15,956 hectares) located in the Liard Mining Division of northern British Columbia.
