First Mining intends to manage the environmental affect of its exploration by utilizing drilling the place present drill and logging roads and trails. Thirty-six holes in a 4,000-metre diamond drill program are deliberate.
This yr’s work will embrace the Dubenski, Dogpaw, East Cedar Tree, Angel Hill, and Robertson regional prospects. Subsequent yr’s drilling will give attention to potential underground exploration on the Cameron deposit.
A 2013 preliminary financial evaluation for the Cameron mission estimated it may assist a 10-year mine life.
In January 2017, measured and indicated assets had been 5.5 million tonnes averaging 2.61 g/t gold for 464,000 oz. and the inferred useful resource was 6.5 million oz. averaging 2.54 g/t gold, for 533,000 oz.
