Philippe Cloutier was just back from conferences in Europe and looking forward to shovelling a foot of snow from his driveway in minus 20 degree weather in Val-d’Or Quebec. He’d been in Munich and Zurich and in both places found investors anxious but willing to listen to solid resource stories.
Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) has awarded GeoPointCom the mandate to complete an initial resource estimate and a supporting NI 43-101 technical report for its 100% owned flagship Chimo Mine gold project located 45 kilometers east of Val-d’Or, Quebec.
There are huge advantages to a brownfield project. Past producing mines come with a valuable legacy of geological and engineering data that is backed by production numbers and, sometimes, leftover mineralization. On the Chimo Mine project this is the case since the mine was closed due to weak gold prices and not lack of mineralization. Factor that in with underground infrastructure that can be readily rehabilitated and it becomes a manageable challenge to prove up the “blue sky”. That’s what Cartier Resources (V.ECR) has been up to in the last two years.
Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) reports it has purchased from Louvem Mines Inc. a 2% NSR (Net Smelter Return) royalty for the Chimo Mine property, located 45 km east of Val-d’Or, in consideration for a purchase price of CDN $350,000.
