E M I AQUILA RESOURCES INC. SUMMER 2012 Finding the Hidden Gems Aquila Resources Inc. concentrates its mineral exploration efforts on the upper midwestern United States. [ BY JIM HARRIS ] • “This is an area that’s been overlooked.” // TOM QUIGLEY, president Menominee County, Mich. Aquila Resources is focusing its exploration efforts on the upper Midwest. United States, an area that has been under-explored for a long time.. The upper Midwest of the United States is not the first region most people think of when it comes to mineral-rich areas ripe for exploration and mining. For Aquila Resources Inc., however, the northern portions of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are at the center of its current mineral exploration operations. “This is an area that’s been overlooked and under-explored. It’s more difficult for companies to operate in this area because understanding mineral ownership and negotiating ownership agreements is not straight-forward,” says Tom Quigley, president and CEO of the company, which has its corporate base in Toronto. “We’ve been operating in this area for many years and have lots of experience and knowledge here.” A STRONG ALLIANCE Aquila Resources plans to move into the feasibility and permitting stage in 2012 on its Back Forty project. The large zincand gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit is in Menominee County in the upper peninsula of Michigan. PROFILE Aquila Resources Inc..
