ACI and partners seeking a farminee to fund the geo program costs for airborne survey, geophysics, drilling and other components for the Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) project to be developed into a world class mine similar to BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam project in Australia.
The ore is a IOCG with 10 pay metals (Copper, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Iron, Zinc and Vanadium). It is a polymetallic ore with the three most prominent from pit samples Gold values of up to 2 grams/mt, Copper up to 4% (Cu Sulphides & oxides) and Siver all at the surface (in comparison, the largest copper mines in the world have average copper grades of 0.67% contained copper with big tonnage).
The Copper/Gold Value calculations report (dated 01.01.2013) estimated for area 500m lengths x 300m width x various depths of seam potential of (10m, 50m & 100m):
Copper grades range from 0.8 to 4.0% and gold up to 2grams per mt as per surface samples in NI-43-101 report. Other pay metals of PGMs, Silver and Cobalt not used in these calculations for valuations but are significant.
For these calculations Copper grade 2.0% used. For Gold 0.5 gram/mt used. Example Copper & Gold volumes & values in Copper Clearing area around Pits #1 & Pit #2:
Volume & Value of 10 meter depth ore seam:
Copper Value: L-500m x W-300m x D-10m = 1,500,000m3 x 2.2sg = 3,300,000mt ore x 2.0% = 66,000mt Cu x US$7,000/mt = US$462,000,000;
Gold Value: 3,300,000mt x 0.5gram/mt = 1,650,000grams x US$50/gram = US$82,500,000.
Volume & Value of 50 meter depth ore seam:
Copper Value: L-500m x W-300m x D-50m = 7,500,000m3 x 2.2sg = 16,500,000mt ore x 2.0% = 330,000mt Cu x US$7,000/mt = US$2,310,000,000;
Gold Value: 16,500,000mt x 0.5gram/mt = 8,250,000grams x $50/gram = US$412,500,000.
Volume & Value of 100 meter depth ore seam:
Copper Value: L-500m x W-300m x D-100m = 15,000,000m3 x 2.2sg = 33,000,000mt ore x 2.0% = 660,000mt Cu x US$7,000/mt = US$4,620,000,000;
Gold Value: 33,000,000mt x 0.5gram/mt = 16,500,000grams x US$50/gram = US$825,000,000.
