Leeward Capital’s company focus is on the development of gold and molybdenum projects in Canada. Properties include one in Nunavut, the Pistol Lake Gold project and one in central British Columbia –the Nithi Mountain Molybdenum deposit.
Our Pistol Lake gold property has a database of dependable historical mapping, trenching and drilling, completed primarily by Chevron before Pistol Lake was acquired by Leeward. An NI-43-101 compliant Technical Report for Pistol Lake was completed by Leeward in 2020 and is available in the reports section on this website. Exploration is planned to confirm and build upon the current database in order to complete a scoping study for the Pistol Lake gold project.
The Nithi Mountain Molybdenum deposit is an intermediate staged project with combined inferred and indicated reserves of 387,192,000 tonnes of molybdenum ore. The details of these tonnages and zones and recommendations for further drilling are described in the 2011 Tetra Tech Wardrop technical report available on this website. Leeward is confident that both grade and tonnage will be further advanced based on the technical review and recommendations. Nithi is located adjacent to past producer Endako Mines in an area with excellent infrastructure.
Molybdenite has recently been added to Canada’s critical minerals list. Please see our FAQS page that describes uses for this mineral, from steel making to hydrogen production.
