About Eagle Mountain Mining Limited

Eagle Mountain Mining Limited (ASX: EM2), established in 2017, is a copper-gold explorer focused on the strategic exploration and development of advanced and greenfield projects in Arizona.

Arizona is at the heart of America's mining industry and home to some of the world's largest copper discoveries, now owned by major mining companies including BHP, Rio Tinto, Freeport McMoRan and Hudbay. Eagle Mountain's Oracle Ridge and Silver Mountain Projects are within the Laramide Arc which hosts many of these significant copper porphyry deposits.

 

Oracle Ridge is a high grade, advanced stage underground copper/gold/silver project. The project includes an NI43-101 resource of 11.7mt at 1.57%Cu, 17.47g/t Ag and 0.18g/t Au. Eagle Mountain believes there is significant potential to expand the known resources through additional drilling, along with exploration at depth to define the source of the mineralisation.

 

Peter Ruse, a director of Gunsynd, commented: "We are pleased to announce a further investment in Eagle Mountain, which offers further exposure to the copper sector via the development and exploration of the Oracle Ridge project in Arizona, USA. It has been pleasing to see the Eagle Mountain share price rise (reaching a 52-week high of A$0.33c during August 2020) following the capital raising and subsequent commencement of drilling at Oracle Ridge.

 

We continue to be encouraged by the robust backdrop to copper prices, which are currently sitting at around $6,750 a tonne, in light of the recent Chinese government stimulus and global economic recovery."
