Exploration is “Research & Development” for the mining industry, an endeavor essential to satisfying future global demand for metals and to the long-term survival of major mining companies.

We remain committed to providing exploration “blue sky” and potential for discovery to our investors, but to limit exploration risk, we adopted a set of risk-reducing strategies including:

  • Taking new looks at known properties and former mines, building on historic data.
  • Acquiring district-scale properties with the potential to host world-class deposits.
  • Adding value through exploration and forming JVs with larger companies and/or experienced mine operators.
