Highly prospective property with very limited drilling completed to date.
A planned $1.3 million drill program in early 2018 to test the Rusty trend was deferred due to delays in obtaining a drill permit from the Manitoba government and a request from the Bunibonibee Cree Nation to complete a comprehensive exploration agreement.
In December 2018, Alto received a conditional work permit to carry out exploration programs consisting of line cutting, ground geophysics and 3,000 m of diamond drilling, subject to first completing a Heritage Resource Impact Assessment (HRIA) study satisfactory to the Historic Resource Branch of Manitoba Sport, Culture and Heritage. Requests for tenders from several archaeological consultants that support “Best Practices” in consultation with First Nations have been obtained. Subject to certain conditions, it is anticipated that the HRIA will be carried out during summer 2020.
Alto remains open to working with the Bunibonibee Cree Nation (BCN) to resolve outstanding issues that will allow exploration to proceed based on co-operation, mutual respect, and economies of scale that benefit both parties.
