The Company’s lead project is the Omu Project located in the town of Omu on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido.
The project is comprised of the 2.98 km2 Omui mining license and 56 prospecting licenses covering an additional 171.38 km2.
The Omu Project encompasses the entirety of the northeast-trending Omu volcanic graben, host to multiple high-grade epithermal gold and silver veins exploited at the historic Omui Mine and Hokuryu Mine prior to World War II.
Irving commenced drilling at Omu Project in March, 2019 and has continued throughout 2020. Results have been encouraging with multiple high-grade vein intersections as noted in the Company’s press releases.
Irving is aiming to complete the following in 2021 on the Omu Project:
- Phase III drilling at Omu Sinter (Winter and Spring)
- Structural study at Omui (Winter)
- Additional CSAMT at Omui (Spring)
- Phase III drilling at Omui (Summer)
- Phase I drilling at Hokuryu (Summer/Fall)
