Copper North Mining Corp.
Copper North Mining Corp. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company. Copper North's assets include the Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project located in the Yukon Territory, the Thor Porphyry Copper-Gold Property in British Columbia, and the Redstone Copper-Silver Property located in the Northwest Territories, Canada.
(1) Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project, Yukon
Copper North's key asset is the 100%-owned Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project, located 220 km northwest of Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Carmacks is permitted for construction and will produce 30 million pounds of cathode copper per year.
The project is being re-engineered as a copper-gold-silver leach operation. A Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) was completed in May 2014 and indicates that the addition of gold and silver recovery provides a positive improvement in project economics. A second phase of engineering work is in progress to evaluate opportunities to further improve operations and reduce capital and operating costs. The Company resumed exploration in 2014 and 2015 leading to a substantial increase in oxide and sulphide resources, with the potential to extend mine life. A new PEA was filed on Sedar, November 25, 2016 that confirms improved project economics.

(2) Thor Porphyry Copper-Gold Project, British Columbia
Copper North acquired a 100% interest in the Thor property in August 2014. Thor is a new copper-gold porphyry deposit in Kemess District, immediately south of the Kemess Mine in north central British Columbia. Thor provides Copper North with an attractive exploration and discovery opportunity adjacent a major dormant mine-mill complex. An exploration program, including drilling of porphyry copper-gold targets, was successfully completed in October 2016.
In 2016, one hole, TH16-01, was drilled in the Thor East target and intersected porphyry-style copper-gold mineralization grading 107.6 m of 0.14% Cu and 0.045 g/t Au including 23.85 m of 0.28% Cu and 0.087 g/t Au. The quartz veining and alteration at the top of the hole is an encouraging sign and provides a good vector to better locate the exploration target.
(3) Redstone Copper-Silver Project, Northwest Territories
Copper North's 100% owned Coates Lake deposit, located in the Redstone Copper Belt, Northwest Territories, Canada, is the second largest high grade (>2.5% Cu) undeveloped copper deposit in the world with an historic resource of 33.4 Mt of 3.92% Cu and 11.3 g/t Ag.
The Redstone Copperbelt is an underexplored district that is highly prospective for sediment hosted copper deposits with strong geological similarities to the giant deposits found in the Central African Copperbelt of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia or the Polish Kupferschiefer. Mineralization has been traced over a 6 km strike length at Coates Lake and IP chargeability anomalies extend for a further 4 km along strike. The deposit is open to the north, west and south. Drill ready targets have been identified and may lead to significant expansion of known areas of mineralization. The Coates Lake deposit is a high quality copper asset in a stable jurisdiction and has significant upside potential.

On January 9, 2018, Copper Mountain Mining Corp. has released production results for 2017 and the fourth quarter of 2017 from the Copper Mountain mine located in Southern British Columbia.
Total production for the 2017 year was 88.3 million pounds of copper equivalent, including 75.8 million pounds of copper, 23,600 ounces of gold and 277,000 ounces of silver, within 2017 guidance numbers. The mill averaged 90.3-per-cent operating time for the year which takes into account the SAG (semi-autogenous grinding) gear change in April. The mill processed a total of 14.1 million tonnes of ore at an average rate of 38,592 tonnes per day and a grade of 0.317 per cent copper.
On January 9, 2018, Copper Mountain Mining Corp. announced that it has closed its non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $74,970. The Company issued 882,000 flow-through shares at a price of 8.5 cents per share.
On January 8, 2018, Copper Mountain Mining Corp. has released results of drilling on the Carmacks oxide Cu-Au-Ag (copper-gold-silver) project, Yukon, Canada. Seven holes were drilled within the zone 2000S.
Highlights of the assays:
On January 3, 2018, Copper North Mining Corp. is correcting a news release for a private placement. The previously announced private placement of Dec. 6, 2017, is replaced by a new private placement, originally news released Jan. 2, 2018, raising gross proceeds of $74,970 through the issuance of 882,000 flow-through common shares at a price of 8.5 cents per share.
