Deer Horn Capital has reported important porphyry-style occurrences of both copper and tungsten at the company’s 51 square-kilometer Deer Horn property in British Columbia, in addition to the gold-silver-tellurium resources previously reported.

Deer Horn president and chief executive officer Tyrone Docherty said:

“Economic porphyry deposits are in great demand worldwide. That’s why one of our priorities is to gain more information about these discoveries at Deer Horn. Certainly the metals and the geological settings discovered to date justify a lot more exploration. While our primary focus is to develop our gold-silver-tellurium resource, the porphyry targets are generating a lot of interest.”

Cobalt mine in Democratic Republic Congo. About half of all mined cobalt comes from DRC, mainly from the province of Katanga. The mining takes place close to towns and villages. Local communities regularly are cut off from their farmland and water sources near mines, without having had a say in the matter. There are several examples of forced relocations of entire villages. Inhabitants of the village Kishiba, for example, were forced to move to make way for Frontier, a cobalt and copper mine. Their new homes in Kimfumpa lack the most basic of services such as clean water, fertile farmland, schools and health care. Photo: ECCJ Secretariat
