“Kintavar continues to leverage its exploration experience in Quebec and to gradually divest its non-core assets while gaining exposure to gold exploration through those transactions. We are very excited to work with Gitennes who recognized Quebec as a mining-friendly jurisdiction and the gold exploration potential in this province.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar Exploration.

In fact, the recent identification of the new gold and cobalt trends complement and adds to our traditional copper mineralization. This is very significant for Kintavar as it provides a new range of targets and a new area to explore. Furthermore, we are evaluating higher grade copper targets within trucking distance of Mitchi in order to be able to consider all these zones ultimately under one resource estimate of significant size. The objective would be to advance these new targets to a drilling stage as quickly as possible and to bring them to the level we currently have at Sherlock. The infrastructure and the location of the Mitchi project is its main advantage allowing to work multiple zones in order to build up a large resource.”
“First off, I would like to thank Pierre for his service and guidance that he provided to Kintavar since the early days of the Corporation. His knowledge and experience in the Quebec mining and exploration industry are second to none and we wish him the best moving forward. With that said, our work over the last 3 years on the Mitchi project has attracted high caliber, experienced mine developers such as Guy and Richard. Not only that both these candidates have tremendous copper experience, they have both recently put mines into production and their knowledge and experience will be vital in advancing the Mitchi project in the future towards that same development. The infrastructure and access of the Mitchi project is a major advantage of our project and as copper prices rebound in the coming years and our exploration team continues to delineate the best mineralized zones from surface, the project will be well positioned towards development. Although we still have a lot of work to do on the ground, the knowledge that Guy and Richard bring will help guide our exploration efforts towards that next stage.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar Exploration.
“We are very excited to have reached an agreement with IAMGOLD on the Anik gold project. Since its discovery in 2014 by our technical team, we have observed regional developments which have laid the foundation to create the next potential mining camp in Quebec. With IAMGOLD leading the way on the adjacent Nelligan project and other assets in its vicinity, this further consolidation with the Anik gold project will help further advance mining development in the Chapais-Chibougamau area. Partnering with a major having a reputation such as IAMGOLD to advance the Anik gold project, Kintavar shareholders will have significant upside exposure to one of the most active gold exploration regions in Quebec” commented Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar.
“The Sherlock zone continues to deliver thickness, grade and size. The interpretation from the structural work in summer of 2019 has been confirmed with this drilling program as we can see in both the long section and the cross section presented. Every single drill hole to date from this program successfully intersected the mineralized unit. We are very encouraged by this and look forward to putting the entire picture together with the upcoming remaining results.” comments Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar.
"Kintavar Exploration is a Canadian mineral exploration Corporation engaged in the acquisition, assessment, exploration and development of gold and base metal mineral properties. It’s flagship project is the Mitchi property (approx. 30,000 hectares, 100% owned) located west of the Mitchinamecus reservoir, 100 km north of the town of Mont-Laurier. The property covers an area of more than 300 km2 accessible by a network of logging and gravel roads with a hydro-electric power substation located 14 km to the east. The property is located in the north-western portion of the central metasedimentary belt of the Grenville geological province. Many gold, copper, silver and/or manganese mineralized showings have been identified to date, with many characteristics suggesting of a sediment-hosted stratiform copper type mineralization (SSC) in the Eastern portion of the property and Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) and skarn type mineralization in the Western portion. Osisko holds a 2% NSR on 27 claims of the southern portion of the Mitchi property, outside of the sedimentary basin."
“We are very excited to see these first results which confirm our interpretation. The units are now better defined with higher grade and very clear boundaries which would make for easier modeling. The way the mineralization is hosted within the marble units is now much more evident and clearly demonstrates the advantages of shallow mineralization model we have at Mitchi versus a traditional porphyry. Shallow open pit deposits with selective mining have significantly lower capital cost requirements in comparison to the bulk tonnage porphyry deposits. We are looking forward to more results from this ongoing drilling program over the coming months.” comments Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar.
That’s how it all started, then we raised $10 million dollars in 2018 on the success of those results. It was the first time we had primary copper mineralization in Quebec in — what? I believe it was over 20 years? We got the Quebec pension fund involved. They hold, today, I believe 14% of the company.
