Regional Significance

  • Hosts the historic Cannon Copper Mine and Mill (aka the Crownbridge Copper Mine), which saw limited copper production in the late 1960s and early 1970s. – A historical resource of 415,000 tonnes grading 1.8% Cu over a width of 6.5’ (1.98m) was delineated. (Source: Ontario Geological Survey, Open File Report 6366, Report of Activities 2019). (Note: This historical resource is not compliant with the standards of National Instrument 43-101-see “National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure” below for additional cautionary language).

  • Previous operators recommended deeper drilling, which was never carried out.

2023 Exploration Plans

  • To be determined after complete analysis of the results from a 2021 vertical time-domain electromagnetic (“VTEM™ geophysical survey which is designed to obtain accurate deep penetrating data over target areas recommended for deeper drilling.

Exploration Summary

  • Extensive exploration and development completed by previous operators from the 1950s to the 1970s, Mining began after a completing a 245m decline and erecting a processing mill. Records indicated that no further exploration, development, or production occurred after 1975.
  • ALX’s efforts to initiate new modelling techniques beginning with the 2021 VTEM geophysical survey is the only exploration conducted after mining ceased in the 1970s.
