The UMEX project is located in the province of Quebec, Canada, approximately 50 kilometers west of the town of Chapais and approximately 85 kilometers west from the town of Chibougamau. It is accessible by road year-round and less than 1 km away from a major Hydro Quebec power distribution facility. The known mineralisation on UMEX consists of volcanic massive sulphides (VMS) within the Abitibi Greenstone Belt an area well known for its numerous precious metals and polymetallic deposits. MPV has already disclosed a compilation of historical data from UMEX, notably from 11 historical drill holes, which defines a significant Copper, Zinc and Silver mineralization.
According to Jean-Francois Perras, CEO: “The Chapais-Chibougamau mining camp is currently experiencing a considerable increase in mining exploration and development activity. Combined with the favourable pricing environment for base metals, the timing was perfect for a new player to enter the market. Our IPO attracted strong interest from a variety of investor profiles, and we look forward to rapidly implementing our work program on UMEX”.
