- A 2022 drill program will target both extensions of known mineralization and new target concepts from the results of recent geophysical and geochemical surveys
- Initial drill sites have been cleared and bonded with Montana DEQ
- Approximately 14,500 m of drill core was re-recorded to update the geological model
- Sampling of surface rock chips at the Flathead Mine to confirm metal distribution and grades
- Approximately 2,600 pulp samples were assayed from historic drill holes at the Flathead and Ole Hill mines, as most historic work did not assay for copper.
- A three-dimensional IP survey was completed over the Hog Heaven project area in the summer of 2021 to further assess target potential and generate new drill targets.

President and CEO Gary R. Thompson said“We are thrilled to partner with Ivanhoe Electric to advance the Hog Heaven project. Historically, most previous operators focused on shallow high-grade silver oxide and gold mineralization. Some of the old underground workings graded up to 3,000 ounces per ton of silver. Our belief is that this precious metal enriched shallow sulphidation style mineralization is related to a copper rich porphyry.
