  • Massive chunks of blue bornite copper mineralization in a section of drill core.

    Game-changing Storm copper discoveries

    Rose Ragsdale, For Mining Explorers|Updated Jan 18, 2023

    American West Metals Ltd. capped its first season of exploration drilling in Nunavut with the discovery of substantial copper mineralization at depth at Storm Copper, a development that the explorer believes will be a "game-changer" for the early-stage project. Initial assays from drill hole ST22-10 confirm the presence of sediment-hosted copper and zinc sulfide mineralization that indicates the potential for a major mineralized system lying below the very high-grade copper... Full story

    Ore sorting upgrades North of 60 mines

    "Grade is king" is an adage that guides mineral exploration and mining. The premise behind this basic axiom of the mining business is the less ore that needs to be mined and processed per ounce of precious metals, pound of base metals, kilogram of critical minerals, or carat of gemstones produced, the more profitable an operation will be. The kingliest of orebodies would be of such high grade that a mining company would simply need to dig up the ore, crush it, and then ship it...

    American West Metals Ltd., a junior led by two mining industry veterans from Australia, has returned to the Arctic this year for a second field season in pursuit of rich deposits at the Storm Copper project on Somerset Island in northeastern Nunavut. Storm hosts a 120-kilometer (75 miles) mineralized trend within an extensive 4,145-square-kilometer (1,600 square miles) land package that covers multiple copper and zinc geochemical anomalies along strike. In March 2021,...

    Ore sorting shows promise at Pine Point

    Updated Sep 25, 2020

    Osisko Metals Inc. May 8 said that recent tests show that ore sorting shows the potential to reduce the costs to transport and process ore at a future mine at its Pine Point zinc project in Northwest Territories. Ore sorting, which identifies and rejects unmineralized rock prior to feeding ore into a mill, is gaining popularity as a means to improve ore grades and reduce processing costs at mines. Osisko sent 800 kilograms (0.8 metric tons) of mineralized samples from Pine Poi...

    More copper-cobalt, drilling at Bornite

    Shane Lasley, Mining News|Updated Sep 25, 2020

    With initial results from the 2018 drilling at Bornite topping 5 percent copper, Trilogy Metals Inc. and South32 Ltd. have decided to extend this year's program at the Upper Kobuk Mineral Projects in the Ambler Mining District of Northwest Alaska. Trilogy has only received partial assay results from one hole drilled this year, but the results are impressive. This hole, RC18-0247, cut 16.4 meters grading 5.34 percent copper and 0.21 percent cobalt to the north of the...
