NUNAVUT – Kaizen Discovery of Vancouver has received permission from the Nunavut Impact Review Board to expand the exploration program at the Coppermine copper property near Kugluktuk. The decision, following a comprehensive review, expands the size of the project to about 3,500 km2.
Kaizen's summer campaign will focus on sediment hosted, stratiform copper mineralization. Camp construction and mobilization of equipment are underway. Diamond drilling is expected to begin later this month. In addition to exploration activities, the company will apply its wildlife and environmental impact mitigation plan.
The Coppermine project contains an easterly trending, 115 km belt of Meso-Proterozoic continental flood basalts (the Coppermine River Group) and unconformably overlying marine sedimentary rocks of Neo-Proterozoic age (the Rae Group). The belt has numerous showings and occurrences that hint at two distinct deposit types – sediment hosted stratiform copper-silver and structurally controlled, volcanic hosted copper-silver.
