About Richview

Richview Resources is a Tier 1 TSX Venture Exchange company 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 Thierry property that also contains 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 of the mine, metallurgical studies and conducting underground delineation drilling on extensions of the copper/nickel mineralization.
