Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. is working to become a significant gold producer through the successful phased development of the Back River District in Nunavut, Canada where Major Drilling has been performing exploration drilling for the company.

Mineral exploration success comes in many forms, commodities, and locations. “The Northern Miner” recently listed the Top-10 (by market capitalization) Canadian-headquartered precious metals companies that are developing successful projects. The listing showed several current and past Major Drilling partners including Sabina Gold & Silver Corp., Gold Standard Ventures, MAG Silver, Osisko Mining, Seabridge Gold, and Silvercrest Metals.

The article reported, “Canadian gold and silver juniors are leading project advancement at home and abroad, as precious metals exploration and development enjoy boom times again.”

By the end of spring 2019, Major Drilling and Sabina finished a 6,400-meter drill program in eight drill holes at three target areas at the Goose property at Back River. Sabina reports further success with high-grade gold drilling results at Nuvuyak Zone, discovered in 2018 to have significant gold deposits
