VANCOUVER — Base metals explorer Wolfden Resources (TSXV: WLF) may hold a sizable land package in the historically productive Bathurst mining camp, but according to CEO George Topping the company is all about new discoveries.

In early January Wolfden acquired a 100% stake in the 200 km2 Tetagouche property 20 km from Glencore’s (LSE: GLEN) shuttered Brunswick No. 12 zinc-copper mine and mill. The land package hosts five historic volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits, but the company’s efforts are focused on finding the bedrock source of a series of high grade polymetallic boulders on the project’s eastern flank.

Topping joined Wolfden’s management team in December after a 25-year career in the industry, which included time as managing director and senior mining analyst at the Canadian arm of investment firm Stifel Nicolaus. The company’s experienced team also includes chairman Ewan Downie — who helms Premier Gold Mines (TSX: PG; US-OTC: PIRGF) as president and CEO — and president Donald Hoy, who formerly served as VP exploration and development for Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF).
