Janice Lake Drill Core On Display- Booth 2825
Forum will be displaying drill core from its Janice Lake sedimentary copper project in Saskatchewan. Janice Lake is located in close proximity to several of the Company’s core drill-ready Athabasca Basin uranium properties. Highlights from Forum’s first pass Janice Lake drill program last year include:
- All 4 drill holes intersected shallow chalcocite, bornite and native copper mineralization above 80m in depth, including Hole FEM 1, which intersected 19.0 m grading 1.0% Cu and 6.5 g/t Ag
- Logging of the drill core and petrographic studies suggest that mineralization is hosted by mafic-rich stratigraphy within more felsic units, opening the possibility for multiple layers of mineralization within the formations
- Forum’s technical team led by Ken Wheatley has identified multiple high priority target areas along the 6 km mineralized Janice Trend for drill testing in 2019. Drill targets are shown in Figure 1 below.
In addition, Forum is pleased to report that the copper price has recovered to its highest level since last summer and that a number of analysts have recently responded by reaffirming their positive outlook for the metal.
