Osisko Metals – Exploring Two Significant Base Metal CampsWednesday, November 21, 2018 - 09:20 to 09:39 Theatre 2
Jeff Hussey is President, CEO and director of Osisko Metals. Osisko Metals is a Canadian exploration and development company creating value in the base metal space. The Company has secured significant positions in Canada’s two premier historical zinc mining camps, namely the Pine Point Camp (“PPMC”) located in the Northwest Territories and the Bathurst Mining Camp (“BMC”), located in northern New Brunswick. At Pine Point, the objective is to upgrade 50Mt of near surface historical zinc resources that Cominco outlined between 1964-1988. Pine Point is unique as it is the only pure play, open pit zinc development project globally. Following the conversion of the historical resources to NI43-101 categorization, the next step is to proceed with an innovative brownfield exploration program in 2019. The plan is to utilize updated geological interpretations and modern tools including LIDAR and airborne gravity geophysical surveys that were not available to previous operators. In the BMC, Osisko Metals is also focused on upgrading historical resources and performing brownfield exploration in the 3rd largest Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide camp in the world. Osisko Metals also owns a portfolio of grassroot exploration projects in Québec.
