Nord’s flagships asset is the former cobalt and silver producing Castle mine property, which is located 85 kilometres northwest of the historic Cobalt silver mining camp in northern Ontario. The company said the Castle property features strong exploration upside for silver, cobalt, nickel, gold and copper.

The Castle Mine site operated at various times between 1917 and 1989, producing silver and cobalt from the No. 3 shaft, one of three existing shafts located on the property.

Records show that over 9.5 million ounces of silver and 299,847 pounds of cobalt was recovered from the Castle Mine. That includes the 3.0 million ounces produced by Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd. [AEM-TSX, AEM-NYSE], before a collapse in the price of silver prompted Agnico-Eagle to abandon the operation in 1989.

The company recently discovered a major high-grade silver vein system at the Castle East property, located 1.5 kilometres from the Castle Mine. Castle East is a new grassroots high grade discovery located beside three former producers and covering 7,332.76 hectares in the Gowganda Camp. The former producers are the Castle, Capital and Siscoe mines.

Those deposits were exploited along the shallow western margin of the productive Nipissing diabase that dips toward the very under-explored Castle East area.
