N-Mining is focused on discovery of largescale copper-polymetallic and gold deposits in Russian Far East
Bolon area is located in the central part of the Khabarovsk region, 110 km of Komsomolsk-on-Amur industrial center and 20 km of a railway station. Previous exploration is dated to the end of 1970s. The area covers so called Bolon Hills at the left bank of the Amur river, opposite Malmyzh Hills (50 km) where the large copper porphyry deposit had been discovered.
Suluk area is located in the western part of the Khabarovsk region, 15 km of Baikal-Amur main railway. The geology includes zoned metamorphic rocks of Upper Paleozoic and Triassic age, dislocated along regional Khingan fault of NE trend, and intruded by small stocks and dyke swarms of the Late Cretaceous Badjal granitoids. Exploration in the early 1980s demonstrated the presence of copper-gold mineralization within the areas of extensive hydrothermal-metasomatic alteration (Sredny Temga, Luch, Pribrezhny showings). Fragments of metasomatic and geochemical zonation indicate above- and upper-ore levels of porphyry mineralization
Tyr area is located on the right bank of Amur river, 60 km of Nikolaevsk-on-Amur local center and port. The geology of the area consists of Lower Cretaceous clastic sediments intruded by Late Cretaceous –Paleogenic diorite. Includes the occurrence of the same name, discovered in 1960 as a result of soil sampling, and tested by trenches and a single 150m drill hole. Channel sampling indicated grade level of 0.n% Cu, 0.n g/t Au. Drill hole returned low copper grades, core not assayed for gold. Besides Tyr occurrence, alteration halos followed by Au-Cu soli anomalies had been outlined in the eastern part of the area.
Chulbatkan deposit is located on the right bank of navigable Amgun river, 8 km of Udinsk settlement. Discovered in the end of 1980s Chulbatkan showing is low-grade auriferous stockwork, which cover an area about 1 sq. km. The stockwork is spatially related to late phase of porphyry granitoid, hosted by earlier granite. Mineralization is not tested at depth. Above- or upper ore level of mineralization poorly outcropping in the creek valley is supposed.
Verkhnee-Zolotoye deposit is located in Primorsky region. 40km west from the deposit running Vostok tungsten mine is situated. The nearest port is 180 km by all year road. Vostok is accessed via a sealed road to a rail head at Dalnerechensk which is approximately 210km west of the Project. Mineralization is hosted by altered Late Cretaceous clastic sediments, intruded by diorite stocks. The dominant element of value is copper but significantly anomalous grades of zinc, lead, tin and silver have potential to contribute to Project value. The geologic setting is reasonably well understood from 22 historic and 60 N-Mining diamond core holes, supported by soil geochemistry, magnetic data and pole dipole IP surveys.
The most significant copper equivalent (CuEQ) results to date are:
Kovrizhnensky area is located on the right bank of the Amgun river, in interfluve of Amgun-Bychy. Abundant Early Cretaceous minor intrusions and dykes cutting tuffaceous-clastic sediments are followed by copper, gold and molybdenum anomalies and showings (Gorbatoe, Kentavr, Kovrizhnensky). The most explored Kovrizhnensky molybdenum showing is ca. 1km2 quartz-molybdenite stockwork in Paleogenic(?) granite-porphyry. The showing had been tested by trenching and two 200m drill holes in 1960.Yasmal area is located 55km of Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, on Albazino – Mnogovershinny trend. The geology of the area consists of Early Cretaceous clastic sediments, intruded by Late Cretaceous abundant dykes and minor intrusions of granodiorite. Mineralization includes Maemi, Patyrlak and Palakovla showings. Maemy is known since 1911. In 1930th 1.5km2 quartz stockwork was mapped in silicified sandstone, with sulfides and free gold in quartz veinlets. Last exploration here is dated to 1960th.
