Alicanto Minerals (ASX: AQI; market cap: $47.7M)
Peter George - Managing Director
Alicanto Minerals is gearing-up to start drilling at its Greater Falun copper-gold project in Sweden next month, with +4,000m of diamond drilling planned targeting extensions to known high-grade mineralisation. The drilling will test a revolutionary new theory that copper-gold mineralisation surrounding the ancient (~1,000 year old) Falun mine is in fact skarn-based, not VMS as traditionally thought. The exploration campaign is guided by a new leadership team that includes former Bellevue Gold Chairman, Ray Shorrocks, as Chairman; former Mineral Resources executive Peter George as Managing Director; current Bellevue Gold director Michael Naylor as CFO; and former Chief Exploration Geologist for Boliden, Erik Lundstam, as Chief Geologist.
