The Project is approximately 170km southeast of Whitehorse, the territorial capital of the Yukon. Teslin, the nearest town, with a population of 2,000 is approximately 40km southwest of the Project.
In November 2018, Rafaella received results from the copper sample taken from the project and in December 2018, Rafaella received the final modelling results from the VTEM survey. Rafaella announced in February 2019 that the presence of modelled VTEM anomalies coupled with the established copper, gold and based metal occurrences at the project has given the Company and its technical team significant confidence to plan programmes to test the various targets within the Project for VMS/skarn style mineralisation.
In May 2020, Rafaella announced that it was selected to receive government funding from the Yukon Mineral Exploration Program (YMEP) for exploration of McCleery of up to 60% of eligible expenses up to a maximum of $40,000. This funding will be used to support a geochemical mapping programme scheduled for early FY21.
