Canadian Critical Minerals: Advancing Bull River Copper Mine Back to Production


Canadian Critical Minerals (TSXV:CCMI,OTCQB:RIINF) advances two copper projects in tier 1 mining jurisdictions in Canada. The main project is the 100 percent-owned Bull River Mine near Cranbrook, British Columbia with a mineral resource of 135 million pounds (Mlbs) copper. CCMI also owns a 34 percent interest in the Thierry mine at Pickle Lake, Ontario, which has a mineral resource base containing 1.3 billion pounds (Blbs) copper with other metals, including nickel, silver, palladium, platinum and gold.

CCMI plans to restart the Bull River mine and return it to production. The company is currently securing permits to restart the mine at its designed capacity of 700 tons per day (tpd). In the meantime, CCMI has begun selling pre-concentrated copper, gold and silver ore from the surface stockpiles at Bull River through an ore purchase agreement with New Afton.

In April 2024, the company transported 362 wet metric tons (wmt) of mineralized material to New Afton and received a payment of US$72,445 for the shipment. The sale of stockpiles should provide near-term cash flow, which will be used to restart the Bull River mine. The current stockpile at Bull River is estimated at 180,000 tons (or 6.14 Mlbs copper equivalent) valued at approximately C$30 million.

Bull River Mine

The Bull River project is near Cranbrook, British Columbia and comprises 21 mineral claims covering an area of 10,285 hectares. It is a tier 1 mining jurisdiction with year-round access to the site by paved and all-weather roads, as well as being connected to the BC Hydro hydroelectric power grid. Bull River was a producing mine from 1971 to 1974.

Trump vs. Biden: How Could the US Election Affect the Gold Price?

The US election is quickly approaching, and the second face off between current president Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump promises to be a much-discussed race to the finish line on November 5.

In 2020, Biden presented himself as a candidate who would bring Republicans and Democrats together, challenging Trump’s divisive and populist rhetoric of making America great again. Trump ultimately lost that election, but recent polling shows that either candidate could still pull ahead in the months leading up to the vote.

In the resource sector, market participants are starting to wonder how the presidential race may affect the gold price. While the yellow metal is driven by diverse factors, the US — and by extension its leader — impacts many of them, including the global geopolitical environment, interest rates and the performance of the US dollar.
