Foran Mining Corporation has announced an initial resource for its Bigstone deposit in the Hanson Lake District 65 kilometers west of Flin Flon. It shows two metric tonnes of indicated resources grading 2.2 percent copper equivilant. They report in 2015 they drilled one of the longest intersections ever in the region which returned a 104.9 meter intercept grading 2.03 percent copper. They note this result is a highlight of the tenor of mineralization that has been intersected during drilling to define the deposit adding Bigstone represents the second National Instrument compliant resource defined by Foran within the Hanson Lake District and could be an important contributor to a long life mining camp that could be developed in the region. Foran is eagerly anticipating returning to Bigstone during their 2021 exploration programs to further define and expand the deposit.
Their Executive Chairman Dan Myerson states the Bigstone resource is one of many satellite deposits that will serve as additional feed for nearby McIvenna Bay as they develop the Hanson Lake District into Canada’s next mining camp.
