Amarc is associated with Hunter Dickinson Inc. ("HDI"), a diversified, global mining company with a 30-year history of porphyry copper discovery and development success characterized by the commitment and drive of its founders. Over HDI's 30-year history, the HDI team has discovered and developed 12 projects, globally, that have been or are currently being mined, and two others that are fully permitted for mine construction - with more to come. Bob Dickinson, Executive Chairman of Amarc's Board and co-founder of HDI and Mark Rebagliati, Chief Geologist of Amarc, are both inductees of the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, recognized for their successful track record in discovering and developing porphyry copper deposits. Pervious and current HDI porphyry projects included some of British Columbia's - and the world's most important mineral resources -- such as Pebble, Mount Milligan, Kemess South, Kemess North, Gibraltar, Prosperity, Xietongmen, Newtongmen, Florence, Sisson and Maggie.
Amarc, a British Columbia-based mineral exploration and development company, draws on its experienced and successful management team. The company is focused on the discovery and development of a new generation of British Columbia porphyry copper mines.
Through a combination of solid projects, financing, and timely permitting, Amarc has created a solid platform to build value for shareholders through its exploration and development programs:
- Assembled an unmatched portfolio of high-quality copper districts: IKE, DUKE and JOY;
- Established strong project level financings with Hudbay Minerals Inc., an experienced mine operator to advance IKE and JOY projects: these partnership-style financings are effective in minimizing dilution to current shareholders; and
- Self-financed DUKE: a project with all the earmarks of the type of copper project that Amarc management has had tremendous success with over the years.
With rising markets, Amarc heads into 2018 with excellent prospects for capitalizing on last years successful field programs and moving further toward its overall goal of achieving a new generation of BC porphyry copper mines.
Amarc is committed to working constructively with governments and stakeholders towards the responsible development of our projects, while contributing to the sustainable development of local communities. Work programs are planned to achieve high levels of environmental performance and local benefits, including providing opportunities for employment, contracting and training for local people. The company is also working hard to support government's consultation duties to assist with timely and fair decision making. We are committed to meaningful and constructive engagement with First Nation communities and favours comprehensive and progressive agreements at the early discovery-stage of project development. Amarc believes that the best outcome is always achieved in the atmosphere of openness, constructive discussions, and mutual respect from all interested parties.
