What is your rationale for attending 121 Mining Investment?
The aim is to make the market aware of the company’s base metals and gold exploration activities and discoveries in north central Saskatchewan, to highlight the significant market upside potential linked to the identification of a new major VMS camp with very similar age and geological characteristics to Flin Flon, a major mining center in Manitoba.
What recent news would you like to highlight to investors attending?
The company recently doubled the mineral resource at the high grade Brabant-McKenzie zinc deposit, quadrupled its land holdings to 278 km2, completed ground geophysics on 4 drill ready targets and completed a new airborne survey which identified over 30 major new exploration targets (high electromagnetic conductivity and high magnetic signatures).
What are your key goals for the next 3, 6 and 12 months?
Complete the compilation and interpretation of the recently acquired airborne data.
Complete field prospecting over the plus 30 new strong geophysical targets
Embark on an aggressive drilling program with the aim of increasing the resource base on the Brabant-McKenzie deposit and as well as pursuing the discovery of new mineral deposits on its 35 km long land package all located within easy access to roads and hydro power.
What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
The company is adequately financed to complete the next field prospecting season. The number and speed of making new mineral discoveries will be directly proportional to the availability of new capital to support and aggressive drilling program.
What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
With one significant zinc/copper deposit and a pipeline of 4 drill-ready targets and over 30 major geophysical targets identified for further exploration, Murchison Minerals is poised to become a significant mining operator in a politically stable region, benefiting from impressive infrastructure and logistics.
