TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – November 03, 2015) – Noront Resources Ltd. (“Noront”) (TSX VENTURE: NOT) today announced that it has started an exploration program close to its Eagle’s Nest Mine in the Ring of Fire. Following a thorough review of its exploration data, the company is initiating this program to test high priority targets within three kilometres of Eagle’s Nest. The program will initially use ground geophysics and if warranted follow up drilling will be conducted.
The company will employ community members from local First Nations during the course of the exploration activities. This builds on the productive relationships that Noront has established with its community partners.
“We are very happy to be exploring in this highly prospective area once more. One of the reasons it was important for Noront to consolidate the land position was to continue with this exploration effort in a systematic fashion,” said Alan Coutts, President and CEO of Noront Resources.
“We are also pleased to be working alongside local First Nation communities as we mutually seek to explore and benefit from development opportunities in the area. It is rewarding to see opportunity and activity come together.”
