March 7, 2018 ~ Located between King’s Point and route 410 to Baie Verte, ‘Whisker‘ is likely to become an area that many in Green Bay and on the Baie Verte peninsula will hear of.
Vancouver-based exploration company Maritime Resources seems to like what it’s finding in the area and the company has announced more work is to start immediately there, at its ‘Whisker Project’.
Maritime says its Whisker Valley Property holds 30 gold prospects and showings “where high grade gold has been documented.”
The newest work in the area will include a detailed Induced Polarization (IP) program. About 15-line kilometres of surveying will be completed.
A 1,000-metre drilling program will start after the Geophysical survey is finished, to test high grade gold veins that were previously exposed in Fall 2017.
Maritime Resources is also continuing an effort to bring the past producing Hammerdown gold mine, located off King’s Point road, back into production.
