It is a short exploration and drilling season in BC’s Golden Triangle. Jim Pettit, CEO of Aben Resources (V.ABN), knows the company has only four or five months to accomplish its program. Aben’s property is in the North Coastal Mountains where 30 or even 40 feet of snow could fall. “Winter drilling is possible,” said Pettit, “But it is a logistical nightmare and really, really expensive.”
