Base metals like copper and cobalt are on target for exploration with Canadian junior mining partner Trilogy Metals. Trilogy was listed third in a recent industry market cap value listing of base metals among Canadian developers. Positive results for Trilogy’s drilling programs are largely based on the ability to access projects in Alaska’s remote Ambler Mine District. The District holds some of the world’s richest known copper-dominant polymetallic deposits including Trilogy’s Bornite project.
