Tynset VMS project (Røros District)
The Tynset project is comprised of 17 exploration licenses totaling 17,000 hectares in the Røros Mining District of central Norway, which hosts a ~30 kilometer trend of VMS style mineral occurrences and historic mines, including the Vingelen Mine, which was operated in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although mining took place elsewhere in the region until the 1970’s, little exploration work has been conducted within the licenses of the Tynset project over the past 30-40 years. Geochemical sampling by the Norwegian Geological Survey in the 1990’s and Boreal Metals Corp. partner Eurasian Minerals over the past four years has identified significant gold and silver mineralization associated with several of the historic mines and prospects. Boreal metals is currently advancing several targets within the Tynset land package to the drill testing stage. The Tynset project represents an underexplored region in a highly endowed, stable jurisdiction with excellent potential for the discovery of precious-metal enriched VMS deposits.
