Message: Wolfden Recommences Exploration at its Polymetallic Pickett Mt. Project in Maine


2020-06-17 06:00:00 AM ET (CNW Group)

Wolfden Resources Corporation (TSXV: WLF) ("Wolfden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has recommenced exploration field work on its high-grade polymetallic (Zinc, Lead, Copper, Silver & Gold) Pickett Mountain Project in Northern Maine. Crews have returned to site to continue with ground geophysical surveys to position new targets in advance of the next drill program that is planned to start in the coming weeks. The groundwork is designed to finalize some of the step-out drill targets that were identified by airborne geophysics and soil geochemistry in 2019. In addition, relogging of historical drill cores has also commenced and is almost 50% complete. This work will assist in developing a greater understanding the geometry of the deposit and assist in designing the next round of delineation drilling with a goal of expanding the known mineral resource.

"We are very excited to get this year's fully-funded exploration program back underway after a pause since early April," stated Ron Little, President and CEO for Wolfden. "We are especially pleased to have John Breedlove of Bangor Maine, join the team to manage Wolfden's exploration efforts in Maine and the USA. Mr. Breedlove holds an MSc. in Geology from the University of Maine and is well experienced in the exploration of volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") deposits such as Pickett Mountain and precious metal deposits. John will also be instrumental in our project development and permitting efforts in Maine as the company continues to advance its rezoning application for an underground mining operation at Pickett Mountain through the LUPC commission." A copy of the petition and more information about the process is available for download from the project-specific webpage https://www.maine.gov/dacf/lupc/projects/wolfden/wolfden_rezoning.html and in part, on the Company' s website.)

About Wolfden and the Pickett Mountain Project

With the support of major investors Kinross Gold Corporation and Altius Minerals, Wolfden plans to explore and develop its wholly owned Pickett Mountain Project in Maine, USA, one of the highest-grade polymetallic projects in North America (Zn, Pb, Cu, Ag, Au). This relatively advanced project is well-located near excellent infrastructure which will support straight forward development.
