Aston Bay (TSX.V: BAY, OTCQB: ATBHF) is exploring for large, high-grade, copper, zinc and precious metal deposits in Nunavut, Canada and Virginia, USA.
The Company is led by CEO Thomas Ullrich with exploration directed by Chief Geologist Dr. David Broughton, the award-winning co-discoverer of Kamoa-Kakula and Flatreef, in conjunction with the Company’s advisor, Don Taylor, the 2018 Thayler Lindsley Award winner for his discovery of the Taylor Pb-Zn-Ag Deposit in Arizona.
The Company is 100% owner of the 1,024,345-acres (414,537-hectares) Aston Bay Property located on western Somerset Island, Nunavut, which neighbours Teck’s profitable, past-producing Polaris (Pb-Zn) Mine just 200km to the north. The Aston Bay Property hosts the Storm Copper Project and the Seal Zinc Deposit with drill-confirmed presence of sediment-hosted copper and zinc mineralization.
The Company’s Blue Ridge Project in Virginia is the result of a 2018-completed transaction with Jack’s Fork Exploration Inc. where the Company acquired the exclusive rights to an integrated geophysical, geochemical and geological dataset over certain prospective private lands located in central Virginia. These lands are located within a copper-lead-zinc-gold-silver mineralized sedimentary and volcanic belt, prospective for sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) and Broken Hill (BHT) type base metal deposits, as well as Carolina slate belt gold deposits. Don Taylor, who led Jack’s Fork Exploration and is currently CEO of Titan Mining Corp, has joined the Company’s Advisory Board and will be directing the Company’s exploration activities for the Blue Ridge Project.
