There is an excellent article on Etruscus Resources over at Stockhouse. It has a great interview with CEO Gordon Lam as well as a detailed exploration of the company’s Rock and Roll project in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle.
BC’s Golden Triangle has been a hugely productive mining area since the 1980’s. There is no question of its mineral endowment as mines like Premier back in the 1920s, the SNIP and Eskay Creek in the early 1990s, and, more recently KSM, Red Chris and Valley of the Kings have all come online with gold, silver and copper in abundance. The Golden Triangle is a big place and there are many highly prospective but largely unexplored or underexplored areas.
Part of running a successful resource exploration company is working on complementary projects. Projects which mesh with one another so that the exploration resources, the drillers, the geos and the logistical support can be deployed efficiently. A big part of that is combining projects which have different drilling seasons.
Nelson Bennett writing in Business in Vancouver takes a look at BC’s significant copper mining industry and how junior explorers may be coming into their own.
