Thormodsdalur is located about 20km E of the city center of Reykjavík, SE of the lake Hafravatn. The target area is the previous mining and drilling zone and the immediate areas towards the south and north.
Sampling has returned grades of up to 3500ppm from type specific veining.
A 1017.7 km2 area is located in the north of Iceland near the town of Akureyri. Peaks in the region reach 1538m above sea level, and there are few significant tracks throughout the majority of the prospect.
Iceland is a geologically unique case when it comes to gold. Has been relatively poorly mapped, understood or explored in relations to gold or other precious metals.
We want to be known as one of Scandinavia most successful junior explorer. With the current focus on precious metals Iceland Resources will focus on engaging in promising early exploration targets. With an open minded management we will focus on expanding our portfolio of projects within the Nordic countries. We will accomplish this by greenfield explorations, strategic partnerships, mergers - acquisitions and potential listing within the short term. In 2016 we will focus on our Icelandic assets along with evaluating other potentials within the Scandinavian region. We are going to achieve our goals with an exceptional and diverse team of professionals and consultants that we are putting together. IR takes the approach that quality team work will lead to results.
