Greig and Associates to advise and execute the Company's exploration program at NAK. Geologist and president of C.J Greig & Associates, Charlie Greig, is a recipient of the prestigious 2022 Bill Dennis Award, recognizing his contribution to the prospecting and exploration industry or a significant mineral discovery.
About NAK Copper-Gold Porphyry Project
Interpretation of the historical geophysics data seemingly delineates an underlying multi-phase porphyry source for the previously-drill-defined near-surface low-grade copper-gold mineralization. The proposed 2022 drill program will test the top of the larger intrusive stock starting at a depth of 500-600m. This interpreted porphyry is a potential source and host for a deeper high-grade orebody, which has never been drill-tested.
The planned drill program consists of 6-8 diamond drill holes totalling 4,500m targeting the newly identified geophysical feature within a well-understood copper-gold porphyry province. NAK's known copper-gold porphyry mineralization is open at depth, and the compelling deep geophysical signature is analogous to Newcrest's Red Chris Mine and Newmont's Tatogga project in northwest BC.
