The company repositioned itself during the period through a couple of initiatives including the pegging of the Snettisham Project, which is in the 7 Moz Juneau Gold Belt of SE Alaska, with associated mining services available in the area, and is accessible all year round. During the quarter, Northern Cobalt finished the 3D modelling of a detailed helicopter-borne magnetic survey (aeromagnetic survey) over the Alaskan-style mafic-ultramafic intrusive complex, which has significant concentrations of vanadium and titaniferous bearing magnetite deposits. Around three diamond drill holes are planned to test the 3D model for vanadium, iron, gold and obtain metallurgy samples for beneficiation test work scheduled to begin in Q2 2019.
The company identified the potential for large scale mineralisation, at this project after review of the historical data while acknowledging its unique position, regarding fundamental infrastructure requirements such as cheap electricity, transport options and proximity to the mining town of Juneau. The Crystal, Friday and Minehaha Gold Mines, within the project area, forms part of the Juneau Gold Belt of SE Alaska, which has produced over 7 Moz of gold so far.
Besides, the company progressed on the exploration at the Wollogorang Project to focus on the promising copper hits. The identification and appraisal of new projects continued during the quarter with several new opportunities identified.
