Non-Mechanized Exploration LULs 2020-12-04
Non-mechanical mineral exploration for precious and base metal deposits (lode and placer) is proposed. The company plans to gather historical information into their GIS dataset to plan how best to facilitate non-mechanized field work. The field work is expected to include geologic mapping, rock chip sampling of outcrops and historic mine dumps, soil sampling, and passive geophysical (magnetometer) surveys. Information gathered will be processed and mapped in GIS. Projects are anticipated to begin after Land Use License requirements are met, likely in December 2020.
