White Cliff Minerals Targets District-Scale Copper-Gold-Silver Opportunity in Canada

White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX: WCN) is preparing for the company’s upcoming maiden field campaign at its Nunavut Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Northern Canada.

Adding to the prospectivity, previous operators proved the presence of high-grade copper veins.

However, there was no sufficient follow up drill testing providing White Cliff with the opportunity for exploration upside.

Troy Whittaker, managing director, commented:

“Despite their being inference and description of substantial strike extents across the project, only single samples were taken from limited occurrences.

“These single occurrences provide us with a substantial foundation to undertake activities looking at district scale potential.”

The company held cash and cash equivalents of $5.49 million as of the end of March 2024.


Whittaker brings experience from senior roles with major global mining companies including Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (ASX: FMG) and Anglo American UK.

Roderick McIllree is the executive chairman, an Australian Geologist with extensive experience in developing large scale projects in cold climates.

McIllree has worked inside the Arctic circle for 20 years.

Nunavut opportunity

The project represents a district scale opportunity at the pre-discovery stage underpinned by the presence of both high-grade, volcanic hosted copper-silver lodes.

There is also the prospect of large tonnage sedimentary hosted copper deposits.

Historic samples have delivered very high-grade copper and silver.

Nunavut will now have a new exploration life utilising modern techniques and experience.

The next exploration steps will be watched with interest.


The White Cliff portfolio also includes the Radium Point Project, in Canada.

The project has been recognised by the Northwest Territories Geoscience Government office as having the highest probability for the hosting of iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) uranium plus silver style mineralisation in the country.

In Australia, White Cliff holds four projects in Western Australia.

Of note is the Reedy South Gold Project which hosts a resource of 42,000 gold ounces.

Reedy South sits immediately south of the Westgold Resources Ltd’s (ASX: WGX) Triton/South Emu Mine in the proven Goldfields region.
