QC Copper and Gold Inc (CVE:QCCU) announced on Thursday that it has successfully received permits from the government of Quebec for its 20,000-metre drill program at its Opemiska project. 

The program is in the works for the area between two past-producing mines, Springer and Perry, with the aim to delineate a new near-surface resource.

Toronto-based QC Copper and Gold is anticipating drilling around 75 holes on the 12,782-hectare property.

In a statement, the junior said that around 75% of the drilling will focus on resource delineation and the rest will go towards brownfield exploration. The exploration holes will be mainly focused on the nearby Cooke-Robitaille property, which houses another two historical mines.

The company said the exploration holes will focus on extensions of the Cooke Mine and will follow up on the new structural model proposed by the company in a November 3 webinar, hosted by VP Exploration Charles Beaudry.

The Opemiska Copper Complex is located adjacent to Chapais, Quebec, within the Chibougamau region and the historic the Abitibi Greenstone belt. The property is connected to a power station and has direct access to a major highway and railway.

Quebec’s government has laid out an ambitious redevelopment program known as Plan Nord, which promotes and funds infrastructure and development of natural resource projects. Opemiska lies within the boundaries of Plan Nord.
