Copper North Mining Corp. – Developing Copper-Gold-Silver Assets in the Yukon


Copper North Mining Corp. (TSXV:COL) is a mining exploration and development company committed to becoming a mid-tier copper producer. Copper North is exploring and developing three properties in Canada: Carmacks in the Yukon territory, Redstone in the Northwest Properties, and Thor in Northwest British Columbia.

The Carmacks Project in the Yukon Territory of Canada is the Company’s flagship property. The 2014 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) indicates that the Carmacks project has a NI 43-101 compliant Measured & Indicated Resource of 11.98Mt@ 1.07% copper, 0.456g/t gold and 4.58g/t silver for 282 million pounds of contained copper, 171,800 oz of gold and 1,705,800 oz of silver.

Copper North is working on a new PEA for Carmacks that reflects the leach and development plan. The new PEA will be based on the mineral resources in zones 1, 4 and 7 and indicate an approximate 7 year mine life. Copper North anticipates that the new PEA will be completed and released in 2016.

Copper North also owns Thor —a 13,000 hectare property south of the Kemess South mine-mill complex in north central British Columbia.

Investment Highlights

  • Updated PEA on the Carmacks Project is pending and expected in 2016; metallurgical studies and engineering completed in March 2016
  • Carmacks Project: Measured & Indicated Resource of 11.98Mt@ 1.07% Cu, 0.456g/t Au and 4.58g/t Ag for 282 M lbs contained Cu, 171,800 oz Au & 1,705,800 oz Ag.
  • Yukon Territory, Canada: low political risk jurisdiction, stable tax regime, current exchange rate favourable for investors, and 100% ownership.
  • Road accessible with proposed10km transmission line to the grid.
  • Cathode copper: reduced transportation and treatment expense compared tocopper concentrates.
  • Additional exploration upside with the Thor Copper-Gold Property in BC

Key Properties

Carmacks Copper Project — Yukon, Canada

The Carmacks Copper Project is located 192km north of Whitehorse and 38km northwest of the town of Carmacks in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The property lies on the Klondike Highway, has excellent road access and a planned 10 km transmission line to the Yukon power grid. The year-round port of Skagway, Alaska is within 400 km of the project.

Carmacks hosts a NI 43-101 compliant Measured & Indicated Resource of 11.98Mt@ 1.07% copper, 0.456g/t gold and 4.58g/t silver for 282 million pounds of contained copper, 171,800 oz of gold and 1,705,800 oz of silver.

Carmacks hosts a NI 43-101 compliant Measured & Indicated Resource of 11.98Mt@ 1.07% copper, 0.456g/t gold and 4.58g/t silver for 282 million pounds of contained copper, 171,800 oz of gold and 1,705,800 oz of silver.

A new PEA is in progress to reflect the new leach and development plan, and will be based on the mineral resources in Zones 1, 4 and 7 that indicate an approximate 7 year mine life based on the mineral resource update reported in January 2016. However, the new mineral resources in zones 2000s, 12 and 13, will not be included in the PEA. Instead, the estimated mineral resources in zones 2000S 12 and 13 will be integrated into a later development plan.

Highlights of the Mineral Resource Update:

The Updated Mineral Resource consists of the Maiden Resource on zones 12, 13 and 2000S combined with the previously defined mineral resource for the Carmacks Project as set out in the 2014 PEA.

Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate (zones 12, 13, and 2000S)

Oxide and transition mineral resources:

  • Measured and Indicated of 3.7 Mt grading 0.50% Cu, 0.35% acid-soluble Cu, 0.132 g/t Au and 2.011 g/t Ag
  • Inferred of 0.8 Mt grading 0.42% Cu, 0.28% acid-soluble Cu, 0.119 g/t Au and 1.910 g/t Ag

Sulphide mineral resources:

  • Measured and Indicated of 3.7 Mt grading 0.60% Cu, 0.128 g/t Au and 2.288 g/t Ag
  • Inferred of 4.4 Mt grading 0.55% Cu, 0.123 g/t Au and 2.081 g/t Ag

New Updated Mineral Resource Estimate

Oxide and transition mineral resources:

  • Measured and Indicated of 15.7 Mt grading 0.94% Cu, 0.74% acid-soluble Cu, 0.379 g/t Au and 3.971 g/t Ag; an increase of 31%.
  • Inferred Resources of 0.9 Mt grading 0.45% Cu, 0.30% acid-soluble Cu, 0.119 g/t Au and 1.900 g/t Ag; a tenfold increase.

Sulphide mineral resources:

  • Measured and Indicated of 8.1 Mt grading 0.68% Cu, 0.178 g/t Au and 2.332 g/t Ag; an increase of 86%.
  • Inferred resource of 8.4 Mt grading 0.63% Cu, 0.150 g/t Au and 1.994 g/t Ag; an increase of 108%.

Dr. Harlan Meade, President and CEO, said, “the expansion of the oxide mineral resource is an important step in increasing the attractiveness for project financing for the Carmacks Project. Furthermore, the expansion of the near-surface sulphide mineral resources warrants evaluation for leaching of sulphide mineralization, taking advantage of new advancements in leaching of copper sulphides, such that the copper may be extracted using the same SX-EW technology proposed for oxide mineralization”.

The new PEA report is being advanced by JDS Energy and Mining Inc., Vancouver, B.C. and will include an equipment list and costing for processing plant equipment provided by Beijing General Research Institute Mining and Metallurgy.

Thor Porphyry Copper-Gold Project — British Columbia, Canada

Copper North acquired the Thor Porphyry Copper/-Gold Project in August 2014. Located approximately 15 kilometers south of the Kemess South mine-mill complex in north central British Columbia, the 13,000 hectare property is easily accessible by road and hosts several attractive, large geophysical targets with similar geology to the porphyry copper-gold deposits of the Kemess District.

In the fall of 2014, Copper North completed a 39km IP survey on the Thor Property. This work, coupled with historical exploration data from the 1980’s and 1990’s, has identified two large targets for porphyry copper-gold mineralization: The Thor East and Thor West targets.

Terms of the acquisition from Electrum Resource Corporation include:

  • Purchase Agreement for 100% Interest
  • Cash payments aggregating $525,000 over 6 years
  • Exploration expenditures aggregating $5M over 6 years
  • Issuance of 5 million shares of Copper North over 5 years
  • 2% Net Smelter Return Royalty capped at $5M
  • Acquisition structure provides attractive joint venture financing opportunity

Copper North is seeking joint venture financing for a large 2016 exploration program.
