Canadian North Resources Inc. (CNRI) is a Canadian mining exploration and development company that owns 100% interest of the Ferguson Lake mining property in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut, Canada. The property holds major base metals (“BM”; nickel, copper, and cobalt) and platinum group metals (“PGM”; palladium, platinum, and rhodium) mineral deposits held in 10 mining leases.
The mandate of CNRI is to create shareholder value from the advancement of its Ferguson Lake Project, a potential world-class BM and PGM producer. The Ferguson Lake Project holds substantial historic resources of copper (1.01 billion lbs, “Blb”), nickel (672 million lbs, “Mlb”), and cobalt (60 Mlb) plus palladium (1.933 million ounces, “Moz”), platinum (0.312 Moz). These estimates are for the West Zone and the West Extension Zone that are less than 6 kilometres in length along a 15 kilometre mineralized belt. There are multiple target zones for massive sulphides and distinct low-sulfide zones for PGM mineralization.
Our management and technical teams devote their capabilities and depth of experience to the successful development of the Ferguson Lake Project. Their expertise spans across resource exploration and project development from greenfield discoveries to advanced developments, including project finance and capital markets.
Our directors and advisors bring to the project with immense competence and knowledge in technical, operational, political, and corporate social responsibilities. We maintain strong ties of communication, consultation and community engagement with the Kivalliq Inuit Association; Federal and Territorial permitting agencies, First Nations, and local hamlets in the region.
The plan is to expand the BM and PGM resource by diamond-drilling exploration for high-grade sulphide zones and low-sulfide PGM-enriched targets along the mineralization belt, to remodel the resource estimates, to expand metallurgical testing, to update the technical report, and to advance the project to feasibility studies. These work plans are scheduled through 2021-22 with expectations for dedicated definition drilling, environmental studies plus metallurgical testing and development activities into 2023 and beyond.
