New Brunswick is a province rich in natural resources, qualifying as the seventh best place in the world for mineral exploration by the Fraser Institute in 2014. Puma Exploration projects are located nearby and inside the famous Bathurst Mining Camp (BMC).
Puma Exploration has become a major player in mineral exploration in New Brunswick through the acquisition of a diversified portfolio of mining properties. In 2014, the Company was honored to receive the Prospector of the Year award from The New Brunswick Prospectors and Developers Association.
The Corporation benefits from the proximity of several infrastructures: In addition to the structured road network bordering its projects, a major seaport, the one of Belledune, is located near the city of Bathurst.
In addition to its portfolio of mineral properties in New Brunswick, Puma Exploration has an equity interest (8%) in BWR Exploration (BWR: TSX-V) following the Little Stull Lake (Manitoba) gold property transaction. It also has a significant stake (48%) in Target Minerals following the Nicholas-Denys property transaction.
Lastly, the Company is keenly following the principles of sustainable development, social responsibility and social acceptability. The quality of the links between the Company and the various communities is of paramount importance for Puma Exploration, and that is why it works on it on a continuous basis.
