Happy one-year anniversary to the Northern Miner podcast! Matt and Lesley sit down for episode #52 with special Geology Corner guest Craig Hart, director of the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Mineral Deposit Research Unit (MDRU), to talk about the new two-year, industry and government-funded Yukon-Alaska Metallogeny project.
The project responds to the needs of gold and copper exploration companies in the Yukon-Alaska Cordillera, a region widely recognized for its mineral potential, but where geoscientific data is either absent, poor or outdated, or requiring synthesis and interpretation. We dig into Goldcorp‘s (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) Coffee gold deposit and the White Gold district, as well as transitioning geological knowledge from the Yukon to Alaska.
As well, Matt sits down with the CEO of Leagold Mining (TSXV: LMC; US-OTC: HTXFD), Neil Woodyer, to talk about the company’s pending deal with Goldcorp for the Los Filos mine in Mexico.
Bonus: An update on the Northern Miner’s Canadian Mining Symposium event in London, England, on May 9th!
