Sudbury Platinum Corporation and Transition Metals Corp. have announced the start of drilling at their Aer-Kidd project in the Sudbury mining camp.
The 2014 drill program will consist of 4,500 metres designed to test high-conductance electromagnetic targets identified on the Aer-Kidd Property located beneath sites of historic past production at depths between 750-1,200 metres. In addition to drilling, other activities will include hole cleaning and resurveying of three historic boreholes aimed at further evaluating the potential down-plunge of the past producing Robinson and Rosen Mines as well as the Howland pit.
“We are pleased with the progress we have made on the Aer-Kidd Project,” said Sudbury Platinum and Transition Metals CEO, Scott McLean. “Acquiring a 100 per cent interest in the project in August was an opportunity that we felt we could not pass-up… We believe the Aer-Kidd property has exceptional prospectivity for the discovery of Ni-Cu-PGM mineralization similar to Vale’s Totten Mine and KGHM’s Victoria development.
