There are to many reasons to mention, but here is one reason that stands out: A PR released yesterday.


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb 5, 2013) - NovaCopper Inc. (NCQ.TO)(NYSE MKT:NCQ) ("NovaCopper" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the release of an initial National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant mineral resource estimate for the South Reef zone of the Bornite Project for its Upper Kobuk Mineral Projects ("UKMP") located in the highly prospective Ambler mining district in northwestern Alaska. At the base case 1.0% copper cutoff grade, the South Reef zone is estimated to contain an Inferred Resource of 43.1 million tonnes at 2.54% copper or 2.4 billion pounds of contained copper. This is the second resource estimate for the Bornite Project.
