Copper Creek Project

Copper Creek is a vast, 3-kilometer-long porphyry copper deposit located in Pinal County, less than two hours northeast of Tucson, Arizona.

The property is located in the heart of the prolific southwestern North America porphyry copper province. It lies at the intersection of a major northwest-trending belt, which includes the well-known copper mines in the Miami-Globe and Ray mining districts, with a major east-northeast trending copper belt made evident by the former BHP Kalamazoo Mine in San Manuel, Arizona. The project consists of approximately 65 square kilometers and has a rich history of exploration and mining across patented and unpatented claims. The area is politically-secure and has access to established mining infrastructure.

The Copper Creek Project is located within a prolific mining district with nearby resources and infrastructure.

Copper Creek hosts multiple breccia and porphyry copper deposits. A Preliminary Economic Assessment outlines a combined open pit and bulk underground mine, low initial capital investment and over three billion pounds of payable copper production during a 32-year mine life.

Key Project Details

Through our advanced exploration methods and deep understanding of resource development, we’ve gathered data to demonstrate that the combination of high-grade breccia deposits along with large-scale porphyry deposits has the potential for a significant, low-cost long-life mining operation.

  • ~65 square kilometer property, 100% owned by Faraday Copper
  • ~3-kilometer-long resource area, open in all directions
  • More than 560 drill holes and over 200,000 meters of drilling to date
  • Over 400 known breccias, with only 35 drill-tested, and 14 included in the Mineral Resource Estimate
