Talon Metals asks for more copper-nickel mining exploration near Tamarack
13 Nov 2019
Earlier this year, Talon moved to acquire up to a 60% interest in the Tamarack copper-nickel mining project near the Aitkin-Carlton county line from Kennecott Exploration Company.
Talon Metals has asked the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for permission to explore metallic mineral deposits at its Tamarack copper-nickel mining project near the Aitkin-Carlton county line.
On Nov. 6, Talon submitted an exploration plan with the DNR detailing its intent to insert "geophysical probes" in existing boring holes, that are temporarily sealed, on active state nonferrous metal mineral leases about 1/2 mile south-southeast to about 3.5 miles north-northeast of Tamarack; However, if the borings are blocked, Talon said it will use a drill rig to clear the blockage.
