Project Description

Location, Access and Description

The historic town of Copper Cliff, Idaho is several miles away and is a mountain town in Idaho with summer homes and a few permanent residences. Copper Cliff is 40 miles north of Council, Idaho and 125 miles north of Boise, ID. 

The Company has acquired a lease on patented mining claims comprising the historic Copper Cliff mine near Cuprum, Idaho, and has also staked a number of unpatented mining claims surrounding the leased patents. Additional staking is planned this spring. 

Surface land is administered by the Payette USFS and the mineral rights are administered by the BLM.

Geology, Mineralization and Exploration Plans

Stratabound copper occurs in greenstone rocks of the Triassic age called the Seven Devils volcanics. The mine is a former copper producer in the Seven Devils Mining District. The Company has staked additional unpatented mining claims adjacent to the patents. 

The Copper Cliff mine had a resource of 2.8 million tons at 1.5% Cu with a silver credit. The property was mined by an open pit cut and then by underground methods. Some portion of this historic resource may be left unmined. 

Mineralization is composed of chalcopyrite, bornite, and chalcocite with hematite and ilmenite. The Company plans to run IP geophysics which should produce a drill target at depth that would produce ore grade drill results. The area has good road coverage and access.

The Company drilled two holes from the patented claims during Sept.-Oct. 2022 which were designed to test the eastward and downward projection below the historic open pit. These holes did not reveal significant copper-silver mineral. The Company is planning two additional holes from the top of the west wall of the open pit to test the westward projection of the historic mineralization. These holes will be drilled the summer of 2023.
