Norway is a country with bountiful resources and strong mining credentials, with copper mining in the region dating back to the 17th century. The country’s expansive coastline also makes mining a typical coastal and regional industry. Drake has excellent copper-zinc projects in the country, including  the Sulitjelma Copper Zinc prospect in northern Norway. The company continues to evaluate the region for significant deposits.

Sulitjelma has had significant historical copper production of 25 million tonnes of ore containing 1.8% copper, 0.86% zinc, 10 g/t silver and 0.25 g/t gold.

Massive sulphide mineralisation occurs at several locations within these permits and modern geophysics will identify areas where it may attain economic thicknesses.

A VTEM airborne electromagnetic survey completed in 2014 identified a number of interesting anomalies. Four targets of interest lie within the western thrust or Sydgruvefeltet ore field which is an area of known massive sulphide mineralisation mapped over a ~10km north / south direction and hosts the Sagmo (1.9Mt mined of 1.6% Cu and 0.23% Zn. Source Norwegian Geological Survey) and the Jakobsbakken (4.47Mt mined of 1.55% Cu and 2.42% Zn. Source Norwegian Geological Survey) historic orebodies.  There is also a significant amount of historic exploration data to assist in selecting priority targets.

In the eastern Nordgruvefeltet region, an extensive conductive horizon with a strike length in excess of 5kms coincident with a copper / zinc bearing sulphide horizon is mapped. Two anomalies have been selected from this region.
