McIlvenna Bay is one of the largest undeveloped VMS deposits in Canada, with acurrent NI 43-101 indicated mineral resource of 6.7 million tonnes grading 0.87% copper, 6.51% zinc and 26.0 g/t silver and a further 6.0 million tonnes grading 0.83% copper, 5.89% zinc and 24.8 g/t silver in the inferred category, based on copper and zinc prices of US$1.50/lb. and US$0.70/lb., respectively.
