Copper North - Carmacks Project

Carmacks Project

The Carmacks oxide Cu-Au-Ag deposit is a road-accessible project that is being developed as an agitated tank SX-EW cathode copper producer. Following SX-EW treatment, Au+Ag will be recovered using a standard cyanide and merill-crowe recovery circuit. Mineral resources have been significantly expanded (see news release 25th January 2016) and there is a high potential to discover additional mineralization on the property.

Slave Geological Province Road Corridor Study

An all-weather road through the Slave Geological Province (SGP) to tidewater in Nunavut has been intermittently considered by Government of the Northwest Territories (and/or Federal Government agencies) since the 1950s and by the private sector since at least the 1970s (Arthur Andersen LLP et al., 1999). The recently developed GNWT Mineral Development Strategy (GNWT, 2013) restated this commitment to invest in infrastructure to improve access to mineral potential. This study follows the 2014 GNWT Mineral Development Strategy Implementation Plan (GNWT, 2014) directive to undertake a resource access corridor study to help planning and prioritization of infrastructure to support resource development.

Kennady Diamonds

Kennady North Project

The Kennady North Project is located 280 kilometers east-northeast of Yellowknife, NT in the District of Mackenzie. The Kennady North project consists of 16 mineral leases and 58 mineral claims totaling 61,000 hectares.


Kennady North covers a portion of the southeastern Slave Geological Province, an Archean terrain ranging in age from 4.03 Ga to 2.55. The area consists of granodiorite intrusions, high grade gneisses and migmatites, with volcanic and sedimentary supracrustal rocks typical of many greenstones belts in the Slave Province.

Project History

The Kennady North Project has been the focus of numerous exploration programs since 1992, culminating with the discovery of the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites. Exploration activity was suspended in 2003 and resumed in 2011. Exploration work has been performed by a number of operators. Initial exploration was conducted under the direction of Mountain Province Diamonds as the 100 percent owner. Subsequent to the formation of a joint venture with De Beers in 1997, De Beers Canada conducted exploration activity. In 2005, Mountain Province resumed 100 percent control over the Kennady North Project and supervised exploration through to May 2012, when Kennady Diamonds Inc. was established.
