The Thor project provides Copper North an opportunity to explore for porphyry copper type mineralization in the shadow of the shutdown Kemess South mine and mill complex in North Central BC. Initial exploration in the period 1960's to 1990's defined porphyry copper type mineralization. The favourable geology over the large area, extensive geophysical survey information and local mine infrastructure make this a very attractive exploration opportunity.
Copper North completed additional geophysical survey in fall 2014, to complete coverage over most of the entire claims area, and further define targets for reconnaissance drilling in the Moose Valley portion of the property. Compilation of historic and new data has identified two attractive porphyry targets.
