Chairman and CEO, Gary R. Thompson, stated, “We are excited to be partnered with Ivanhoe Electric to advance the Hog Heaven Project. Historically, most of the previous operators focused on the shallow high-grade silver and gold oxide mineralization. Some of the old underground workings assayed up to 3000 ounces per ton silver. Our thinking is that this shallow precious metal enriched high-sulphidation style mineralization is related to a copper rich porphyry.”
