The Stage II underground program will focus on the lower extent of the decline and include de-watering, refurbishment, surveying, geological mapping, and sampling. Application for Stage II permitting will proceed following site surveying, receipt of the Stage I water chemistry results, preparation of a proposed Stage II site plan, and stakeholder consultations.

About the Chester Feeder Deposit

Based primarily on the historical drilling results, the Chester Feeder Deposit is an east-west trending gently west plunging cigar-shaped mineralized structure within an alteration zone approximately 75 meters (246 ft.) or more in thickness and greater than 200 meters (656 ft.) in width. It extends west of the current area of drilling for more than 800 meters (2,625 ft.). At the east end it lies close to surface and at its known western extent it is approximately 400 meters (1,322 ft.) below surface. The targets of the current resource estimate drilling program are one to three (or more) stacked, gently westerly inclined and northerly striking, sheet-like zones of higher-grade mineralization of variable thicknesses within the cigar-shaped feeder structure.

The Chester property is located in the southern part of the Bathurst Mining Camp approximately 53 kilometers (kms) west of Miramichi City, and 72 kms southwest of the city of Bathurst, New Brunswick.
