Vancouver, BC – Aben Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ABM) (OTCQB: ABNAF) (Frankfurt: R26) (“Aben” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a NI 43-101 Technical Report at the Forrest Kerr Project, in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle.
The author of the report is North Mountain Geosciences located in Smithers, BC. Our objective with commencing a technical report on the project is for two fundamental motives. One, collect and combine all of the exploration work and data to help determine future work programs and areas of interest on the project. And two, provide management with a fair market value for the project.
Since acquiring the project in 2016, the Company has invested over $8,000,000 to discover multiple high-grade precious metal occurrences while many highly prospective targets remain untested.
