The amendment is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval if and as required.
The Niblack Project is located on tidewater near Ketchikan on Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska, an area with a skilled workforce, excellent power and transportation infrastructure as well as a long history of public and official support for responsible mineral resource development and mining.
Since 2009, Heatherdale has invested some $37 million and drilled more than 200,000 feet of core to define 5.6 million tonnes of Indicated and 3.4 million tonnes of Inferred mineral resources1 at Niblack. While possessing significant potential for expansion, the known mineral resources at Niblack provide a solid basis for the initiation of engineering, environmental baseline and other technical studies necessary for project planning and permitting.
Heatherdale Resources Ltd. is a Vancouver-based exploration and development company focused on advancing its high-grade mine development opportunity at the Niblack Project. The Company is associated with the Hunter Dickinson group, which has a track record of successful mineral exploration and development projects around the world.
