NUNAVUT – Toronto-based Advanced Exploration must be pleased that samples from the A-B zone at its Roche Bay iron ore deposit on the Melville Peninsula have, at least in the lab, made a 70% Fe concentrate with <3% silica. The historical resource is 467 million tonnes.

Moreover, Advanced is hopefull that A-Z zone ore can be upgraded to a direct shipping ore (DSO). Both the direct shipping and high grade concentrate options will be examined. as part of the feasibility study now underway.

The A-B zone is located within 4 km from the potential port and infrastructure that would service a mine there as well as mining at the C-zone.
