(“CAVU”) announced excellent drill results from a new area of skarn mineralization at the Hopper copper-gold-silver project, located in southwestern Yukon.

“Strategic congratulates CAVU on its discovery and anticipates that future drilling will result in more discoveries within this large skarn/porphyry complex” states Doug Eaton, CEO of Strategic. “CAVU’s discovery spotlights the copper potential of southwestern Yukon, an area which hosts several mines, former mines and undeveloped copper deposits. Strategic owns a number of other promising copper-gold projects in this area and sees CAVU's success a potential stimulus for exploration throughout the district.”
The Hopper project is located along the Ashihik road, 50 km from its junction with the Alaska Highway and 22 km north of the Ashihik hydroelectric dam.
