Amarc holds 100% interest in the expansive JOY, DUKE and IKE Cu-Au Districts in BC: each district hosts one or more known porphyry copper deposits and a pipeline of high-potential deposit targets. Major partners are earning in, funding non-share dilutive exploration at JOY and DUKE. Amarc is project operator at both JOY and DUKE.
At the JOY Cu-Au District, programs since 2021 have been fully funded through a Mineral Property Earn-In Agreement with Freeport-McMoRan Mineral Properties Canada Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (see Amarc release May 12, 2021).
- Comprehensive drilling and surface exploration programs were undertaken in 2021 and 2022 which, among other things, expanded the PINE Cu-Au Deposit with potential for further expansion, and made a new porphyry Cu-Au discovery called Canyon (see Amarc release dated June 26, 2023).
- The extensive 2023 program includes airborne and surface exploration surveys focused on detailed refinement of multiple porphyry Cu-Au deposit targets clustered along mineralized trends over the 482 km2 JOY property. The work also includes rehabilitation of road and bridge access to the PINE Cu-Au Deposit in the center of the JOY tenure and other deposit targets to facilitate the ongoing detailed work and in preparation for an extensive intended drilling program in 2024.
At the DUKE Cu-Au District, $10 million in exploration expenditures at the DUKE District through 2023 is being fully funded under the Mineral Property Earn-in Agreement with Boliden Mineral Canada Ltd., an entity within the Boliden Group of companies (see Amarc release November 22, 2022).
- More than 11,000 meters of drilling was completed in late 2022-early 2023, expanding the DUKE deposit (see Amarc release June 15, 2023). Since that time, extensive airborne geophysics and ground geological, geophysical and geochemical surveys have been underway to assess 16 prioritized porphyry Cu-Au targets across the 678 km2 DUKE District to refine targets for early 2024 drill testing.
About Amarc Resources Ltd.
Amarc is a mineral exploration and development company with an experienced and successful management team focused on developing a new generation of long-life, high-value porphyry Cu-Au mines in BC. By combining high-demand projects with dynamic management, Amarc has created a solid platform to create value from its exploration and development-stage assets.
Amarc is advancing its 100%-owned JOY, DUKE and IKE porphyry Cu±Au districts located in different prolific porphyry regions of southern, central and northern BC, respectively. Each district represents significant potential for the development of multiple and important-scale, porphyry Cu±Au deposits. Importantly, each of the three districts is located in proximity to industrial infrastructure – including power, highways and rail.
Amarc is associated with HDI, a diversified, global mining company with a 35-year history of porphyry Cu deposit discovery and development success. Previous and current HDI projects include some of BC’s and the world’s most important porphyry deposits – such as Pebble, Mount Milligan, Southern Star, Kemess South, Kemess North, Gibraltar, Prosperity, Xietongmen, Newtongmen, Florence, Casino, Sisson, Maggie, IKE, PINE and DUKE. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral projects.
Amarc works closely with local governments, Indigenous groups and stakeholders in order to advance its mineral projects responsibly, and in a manner that contributes to sustainable community and economic development. We pursue early and meaningful engagement to ensure our mineral exploration and development activities are well coordinated and broadly supported, address local priorities and concerns, and optimize opportunities for collaboration. In particular, we seek to establish mutually beneficial partnerships with Indigenous groups within whose traditional territories our projects are located, through the provision of jobs, training programs, contract opportunities, capacity funding agreements and sponsorship of community events. All Amarc work programs are carefully planned to achieve high levels of environmental and social performance.
