About Richview

Richview Resources is a Tier 1 company on the TSX Venture Exchange that is conducting exploration and participating in joint ventures for base metal and gold. The company's primary property is the copper/nickel Thierry Mine property near Pickle Lake, Ontario. This property was previously mined by Union Minere Exploration Company in the late 1970's and early 80's. Operations ceased due to the depressed commodity prices prevailing at that time.

Richview has delineated a copper/nickel resource on the property that may contain economic values of platinum, palladium, gold and silver. The company is now proceeding with a scoping study to determine the technical feasibility and economic viability of the project. This study will set out the parameters for proceeding with dewatering the mine, metallurgical studies and conducting underground delineation drilling on extensions of the copper/nickel mineralization.
