Foran Mining Corporation has announced the results of the final three infill drill holes at the Bigstone deposit west of Flin Flon which were part of their winter exploration program.
President and CEO Partick Soares says the program exceeded their expectations. He reports the Thunder Zone is thickening along strike to the northwest and is open in both directions. He says high grade zinc and copper intercepts from the zone indicate potential to outline a deposit within seven kilometers of their McIlvenna Bay deposit 65 kilometers west of Flin Flon. Soares explains their work at Bigstone has demonstrated the deposit may be open to expansion and that it could be a source of early high grade feed to a future McIlvenna Bay Concentrator. He says they plan to continue to look at the synergies between McIlvenna Bay and the surrounding satellite deposits, as Foran management believes that once the first deposit gets to production, the Hanson Lake Camp has the potential to be a long lived source of copper and zinc concentrate.
