Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. updated shareholders regarding its proposed drill program on the Bateman Bay property, including the C-3 copper/gold zone. The start of the program, as indicated on December 24, 2020, was predicated upon ice conditions which would support the weight of a diamond drill and sundry equipment. Recent checks have shown that relatively warm temperatures have impeded the formation of a sufficient thickness of load bearing blue ice. This being the case, may, subject to availability of scarce drill crews and equipment, initiate a more limited drill program from the shore, solely on the C-3 copper/gold zone and immediate area. Here, have traced the C-3 zone from surface to a vertical depth of 450 metres. Drilling of other targets will be delayed until the summer when, subject to availability, drilling will be from a drill mounted barge.
