MPD Copper-Gold Porphyry Project

  • 7850 hectare (78.5 km2) land package in South-Central British Columbia, Canada;100% owned
  • Porphyry project consolidated from three properties (Man, Prime, Dillard); never explored as single project with modern methods
  • In a known, productive copper-gold porphyry belt; nearby mines with similar host rocks (Highland Valley, Copper Mountain, Mt. Milligan, New Afton)
  • Adjacent to highway with year-round access by service roads

Project Summary

  • 129 drill holes (25780 m) completed from 1966 to 2014. Previous operators include Rio Tinto PLC (LSE:RIO) and Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE: NEM)
  • Numerous showings; copper confirmed
    to-date across a large, 10km2 area
  • Favourable gold-to-copper ratios
  • Untested Cu and Au soil anomalies are near-term drill targets
  • Mineralization from surface, historic drill holes rarely tested below 200m vertical depth.  Limited deeper drilling confirms significant depth/size potential

The MPD Project is located in the Quesnel Trough, British Columbia’s primary copper-producing belt that hosts Teck Resource’s world-class Highland Valley Mine, Imperial Metals’ Mount Polley Mine, and Centerra Gold’s Mount Milligan Mine (see Table 1).  The MPD project’s Nicola Belt geology has many similar characteristics to the neighbouring alkalic porphyry systems at the Copper Mountain Mine to the south and New Gold’s New Afton Mine to the north.
