READ: PolarX completes $1.26 million placement for Alaska Range Project

PolarX, which is focused on the Alaska Range Copper-Gold Project in Alaska, last week completed a placement which raised $1.26 million.

The company said support for the placement from existing holders reflected confidence in the substantial upside at Alaska Range.

Significant progress has been made at Alaska Range this year, with PolarX considerably enhancing the prospectivity of the project to host major porphyry copper-gold systems.

Placement funds will be used for work including a metallurgical test program, exploration surveys and securing key exploration contractors.

Focus on Zackly deposit

The 2019 exploration program will be designed to further explore the 55 metres at 2.8 g/t gold and 0.6% copper intersection recently discovered at the Zackly deposit.

PolarX’s planned metallurgical test work program will evaluate processing options for the Zackly copper-gold skarn mineralisation.

Planned exploration includes a 15-20 line-kilometre induced polarisation (IP) ground geophysical survey over the Zackley SE porphyry target.

The company also plans to explore the Mars porphyry copper-gold target.

Funding will also be used to reduce helicopter support requirements for the 2019 field program, intended to significantly reduce future exploration costs.
