A Historical Project with New Ideas

PREVIOUS STRATEGY 
    • The Chester Project is located within the prolific Bathurst Camp of New Brunswick, Canada which has hosted over 45 volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) base metal deposits.

    • Chester was discovered in 1955 and previously experienced two significant and distinct exploration campaigns from 1960-1975 and again in the early 2000’s; both under very different market conditions for precious and base metals like we have now.

All original exploration and development strategies for Chester targeted the high-grade copper Stringer Zone that starts at 40 meters below surface via an underground operation only. Therefore, other precious metals (gold, silver) and base metals (zinc, lead) were disregarded from analysis, in addition to lower-grade copper halos surrounding the Stringer Zone.

It is clear from an extensive review of historical data, including drilling logs, assay results, block models, that gold, silver, lead, and zinc are present and should be incorporated into the global mineral resource estimate and be included in the exploration strategy.

OUR STRATEGY
    • Validate the existing historical resource estimate through new drilling, fresh core logging, geological interpretation, and issue a new global mineral resource estimate (MRE) to include copper and all previously excluded metals of gold, silver, zinc, and lead.
    • Apply our new geologic understanding of Chester with a new MRE to generate new exploration targets that test open extensions of Chester (laterally and at depth).
    • Identify in-fill drilling targetsthat will improve resource confidence levels.
    • Develop and analyze various mining scenarios by applying both an open pit and underground delivery strategy for Chester based on the new MRE.
