Amarc is a British Columbia-based mineral exploration and development company with an experienced and successful management team that is focused on advancing the IKE Project, a major porphyry copper discovery located in the heartland of BC's copper mining industry.
The IKE discovery is located 40 kilometres northwest of the historical mining community of Gold Bridge. The district has long been explored for its numerous showings of copper, molybdenum, gold and silver mineralization. Amarc's discovery core drilling program was located above tree line within a large and barren cirque. Nine holes, totalling 5,400 metres of HQ and NQ diameter core were drilled at the IKE target in 2014. Assay results from these holes along with geophysical, geochemical and geological surveys completed outwards from the drilled area indicate an important new porphyry copper-molybdenum-silver deposit discovery is at hand.
Amarc is committed to meaningful engagement and building long-term relationships with all communities in the IKE Project area, including mutually beneficial partnerships with Aboriginal groups. A comprehensive engagement plan is in place that is consistent with the current level of exploration activity. The company continues to build on positive relationships with regulators, supporting government's consultation duties to assist with timely and fair regulatory decision-making. The IKE Project represents an opportunity for local communities, Aboriginal groups, government and Amarc to work together to advance this exciting new porphyry copper-molybdenum-silver discovery in an area where mining is expressly zoned through a regional land planning process.
Amarc is guided by experienced management and advisors through its affiliation with Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI). HDI is a diversified, global mining company with a 25 year history of porphyry discovery and development success. Previous and current HDI porphyry projects include some of the Province's and the world's most important mineral resources, such as Mt. Milligan, Kemess, Gibraltar, Prosperity, Xietongmen, Florence, Sisson, Maggie and Pebble. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral properties to provide superior returns to shareholders.
