Foran Mining is planning to initiate a drill program focused on the historic Bigstone Deposit. The Deposit lies about 25 kilometers southwest of their McIlvenna Bay Deposit located 65 kilometers west of Flin Flon. The drill program is designed to follow up on results of Foran’s initial drilling completed in 2015 which they report produced a number of significant intersections which speak to the potential of the Bigstone Deposit to host high grade copper and zinc mineralization.
Their President Patrick Soares says management believes now is the time to follow up these results and build a resource which could potentially supplement any mine development decision at McIlvenna Bay. He adds they hope to conduct enough drilling to not only verify the grade at the Bigstone Deposit but drill holes that may incrementally expand the size of the know deposit.
