Located near the Norwegian city of Trondheim, the 18,600 Ha Meråker project contains multiple historic mines and prospects developed on trends of polymetallic VMS style mineralization (see Figure 3). Copper was the chief product from many of the historic mines, but significant zinc mineralization is seen in the mine dumps and outcrops in the area. There are several parallel trends of mineralization within the project area, extending for nearly 30 kilometers along strike. Little modern exploration has taken place at Meråker.
The Company and its former partner Norra Metals together with the NGU (Geological Survey of Norway) jointly carried out an airborne EM survey over the Meråker project in 2021. In 2023 EMX carried out reconnaissance mapping and sampling covering various prospects in the Meråker license block with positive base metal results. An extensive soil sampling program, including 4750 samples covered the prospective Fonnfjell, Mannfjell and Lillefjell targets, which warrant follow-up work.
Note: The nearby mines and deposits in the region provide context for EMX’s Project, which occurs in a similar geologic setting, but this is not necessarily indicative that the project hosts similar tonnages or grades of mineralization.
