Projects

Cooper-Gold Project

Kharmagtai Project

The Kharmagtai copper-gold project is located in Omnogovi Province, approximately 420km southeast of capital city Ulaanbaatar. It is within the South Gobi porphyry copper province, which hosts most of the known porphyry deposits in the South Gobi region of Mongolia—including Rio's Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold operations.

There are three styles of mineralisation at Kharmagtai; porphyry style stock work copper-gold (Cu-Au) mineralisation, tourmaline breccia style Cu-Au mineralisation, and epithermal gold associated with carbonate base metal veins. The project's Scoping Study delivers a 30-year life of mine plan valued at US$630M; a 4-year payback schedule, and a 20% internal rate of return (IRR). Annual production is forecast at 30-50Kt Cu and 100-115Koz Au.

Red Mountain Project

The Red Mountain porphyry copper-gold project is located within the Dornogovi Province of southern Mongolia, approximately 420km southeast of Ulaanbaatar.

Alteration and mineralisation at Red Mountain is characterised by multiple co-genetic Cu-Au porphyry centres, tourmaline breccia pipes and copper-gold/base metal magnetite skarns.

Exploration at Red Mountain has defined broad zones of strong quartz stockwork veining and associated high-grade gold mineralisation (typically around 0.5 to >5 g/t gold and 0.3 to 1.5% copper). The geology, strength of alteration and style of mineralisation also suggest that the mineralisation will extend at depth.
