Copper North Mining Corp. Sept. 9 reported the start of drilling at its Thor copper-gold property in northwest British Columbia. This drilling will begin at target 3 of Thor East, an area defined by sparse outcrops of granodiorite with copper oxide mineralization in the lower reaches of the mountain that is capped by mafic volcanic rocks that host numerous small veins with copper and gold and extensive alteration zones. Drilling is also planned for Thor West, an area defined by an induced polarization geophysical anomaly that covers a 2,000- by 2,500-meter area adjacent to the Kemess mine access road.
