  • Constantine expands high-grade discovery, drill program at Palmer

    Updated Mar 14, 2018

    Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. Aug. 17 reported additional long, high-grade intercepts from exploration drilling at the Nunatak AG zone, a volcanogenic massive sulfide discovery located about 3,000 meters south of the South Wall-RW deposit at the Palmer project in Southeast Alaska. The discovery hole at Nunatak AG, reported in July, cut 9.2 meters of massive barite-sulfide averaging 312 grams per metric ton silver and 0.9 g/t gold. CMR17-92, drilled about 140 meters south of the discovery hole, cut 17.8 meters grading 11.7...

  • Peregrine seeks deeper Chidliak CH-6 diamonds

    Updated Jan 14, 2018

    Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. Aug. 23 said a three-hole, 1,474-meter drill program confirms the expansion potential of the CH-6 kimberlite at its Chidliak diamond project in Nunavut. DD36, a 378-meter vertical hole, intersected kimberlite from 4.5 to 295.8 meters below surface, which is consistent with the current resource model for the CH-6 kimberlite. DD38 cut 190.2 meters of typical olivine-rich CH-6 kimberlite from 277 to 442 meters below the surface, confirming previous results...

  • Drills tap high-grade silver at Dolly Varden
