MANITOBA SEYMOUR EXPLORATION of Sudbury, Ontario, has a measured and indicated resource of 6.4 million tons grading 0.85% Ni and 0.39% Cu at its Lynn Lake project in the northern part of the province. The numbers come from a study compiled by WARDROP ENGINEERING of Toronto. The same study also identified 15 high-priority target areas near the former mine and additional untested targets nearby.

Production from the Lynn Lake mine began in 1947 and continued until 1976. During that time over 22 million tons of nickel-copper ore was mined, making it North America’s third-largest nickel producing area, behind Sudbury and Thompson.

The next step, says Seymour president & CEO Richard Murphy, is a scoping study. His company hopes to add increase the existing mineral resources and reopen the Lynn Lake mine.
