Matt and Lesley sit down over coffee to discuss the geology of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut! We dig into northern exploration plays, including: Nighthawk Gold’s (TSXV: NHK; US-OTC: MIMZF) Colomac deposit; Auryn Resources‘ (TSXV: AUG) Committee Bay project; Peregrine Diamonds (TSX: PGD) Chidliak project on Baffin Island; Agnico Eagle Mines‘ (TSX: AEM; NYSE: AEM) recent Amaruq discovery near its Meadowbank gold mine; and Sabina Gold and Silver’s (TSX: SBB; US-OTC: SGSVF) Back River gold property.

Lesley explains what she’s uncovered during her foray into northern Canadian geology, and breaks down the science behind greenstone gold belts and kimberlite pipes. Meanwhile, Matt rounds up some global issues, including the impending U.S. interest rate hike, China’s economic health, and ongoing labour disputes at major copper operations.

Bonus: Major announcements surrounding the Northern Miner’s Canadian Mining Symposium event in London, England, on May 9th!
