Mining company to begin exploratory drilling in Pembroke

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A Canadian-based junior mining company, Wolfden Resources Corporation, has announced plans to begin exploratory drilling in Pembroke next month, to evaluate the potential for a mining project it calls Big Silver.

Wolfden is the first company to attempt mining in Maine since 2017 when the state passed LD 820, An Act To Protect Maine's Clean Water and Taxpayers from Mining Pollution.  Wolfden CEO Ron Little says Maine’s new mining rules “set the highest standard in the country.”
