Constantine’s flagship Palmer project (+$35 million spent to date) is a high grade VMS Cu-Zn-Ag-Au-Barite deposit next to paved highway in coastal southeast Alaska. Palmer is a joint venture between Constantine (51%) and Japan’s largest zinc company, Dowa Metals & Mining (49%). Constantine has a dual focus of advancing the Palmer project to feasibility (maiden PEA currently underway) and drill testing several deposits in the Palmer district.
In addition, Constantine has a portfolio of high-quality 100%-owned gold assets to be spun out into a new company including Timmins, Ontario projects and the Johnson Tract (deposit) in Alaska.

What are your key goals for the next 3, 6 and 12 months?
Constantine is moving toward the completion of a PEA on the Palmer base metal project in Alaska.
Constantine has begun the process to spin out the company’s gold assets in Alaska and the Timmins, Ontario gold camp, with a planned completion date by end of the first half of 2019. A raise will be done concurrently with the spin-out.
Financial raise for Palmer JV (Dows) project and for work on regional targets outside JV lands.
What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
The key challenge is always the ability to raise funds for ongoing work, however, Constantine has CAD$3.4 million cash on hand and sufficient interest from current and prospective investors for cautious optimism that additional funds may be raised as required. Dowa, as a 49% project partner, significantly de-risks a number of aspects in the development of Palmer.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
The regional targets surrounding the Alaska Palmer JV project offer tremendous resource growth.
Any investment in Constantine, prior to a record date (yet to be established) will yield proportionate investment in the new gold company to be spun out of Constantine.
