New Brunswick Weather And Exploration

January 8, 2014

In drear-nighted December,
   Too happy, happy tree,
Thy branches ne’er remember
   Their green felicity:
The north cannot undo them
With a sleety whistle through them;
Nor frozen thawings glue them
   From budding at the prime.

From In Drear-nighted December, John Keats (1829)


The above stanza from a John Keats poem could characterize the December New Brunswick suffered through. Canada and winter go hand in hand, and this year Eastern Canada in particular has had a full dose of winter already.


NB Power reconnects power to thousands of homes due to extreme winter weather

But as the poem conveys, the weather will improve and we will continue. That applies to Geodex’s exploration programs as well. We were fortunate that the worst weather happened during a period when little work was planned. Our induced polarization (IP) survey at Benjamin has been delayed, however we expect to have it completed this week. We are still well positioned for our initial drill test, planned for late January-February, at the Benjamin copper-molybdenum project west of Bathurst.

That being said, we will try and pick a good weather window for the drilling and hope that “drear-nighted” December’s weather will not continue!

Best of the New Year to everyone,
