Success in the Mining Friendly State of Idaho
President & CEO of Idaho Champion, Jonathan Buick talks about the company’s six projects, including their flagship project, the Baner Project.
“Idaho Champion is a discovery-focused business. We have six projects in the state of Idaho. Two in gold, four in cobalt. Our flagship project is the Baner Project. This is a project that’s been on by the same family since 1892. We purchased that for five and fifty thousand U.S. dollars. In 2016 we submitted a drill permit. Started drilling our discovery program last June and through the course of the drill program we’ve intercepted 18 holes of mineralization. We have a strike length of about 500 meters by 200 meters across. When we were looking at projects all around the world we want to be in a jurisdiction that had some mining laws and rules and regulations. There’s a number of companies there are now active in the state and we see it as a great jurisdiction. We have a governor that continues to fly around the big capital market cities like New York and Toronto to show support for our industry. Idaho’s been in mining since 1860. It is a mining friendly state and we’ve got a discovery that wants further expansion. What gets me excited is knowing that we have a very capable team and now my job is to make sure that the market understands what we’ve done, how we’ve been able to accomplish it and having a report card to be accountable. Our focus now is to advance the Baner Project as well as continuing to look at other assets within the state of Idaho,”- Jonathan Buick, President & CEO of Idaho Champion.
