Wellgreen Emerges
Prophecy Platinum Passes a Milestone with its First Yukon PEA
By Kevin Michael Grace

Throughout a 50-year history with numerous owners, the Wellgreen Project has never lacked for promise. Extensively drilled, it briefly produced high-grade nickel and copper in the Yukon 30 years ago. The property has been owned since 2011 by Prophecy Platinum TSXV:NKL, which has added gold and platinum group metals (PGMs) to the traditional resource base. With the June 18 release of a positive preliminary economic assessment, that promise has begun to emerge. Wellgreen could, in the words of Chairman John Lee, “potentially reach of the size of the some of the world’s largest nickel-sulphide projects.”

Lee calls Wellgreen “humungous.” It measures 22.1 square kilometres precisely, with “up to almost 18 kilometers of known mineralization. We’ve only explored two kilometers. The existing resource, which is at 450 million tonnes, is entirely encapsulated in that two-kilometer strike.” The project is located in the southwest of the Yukon, 317 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse, 35 kilometres northwest of the Burwash Landing airstrip, 15 kilometres from the Alaska Highway and 402 kilometres from the deepsea port of Haines, Alaska.
