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: "Gunsynd was pleased to have opportunity to participate in the latest financing in Eagle Mountain. The company's drilling program is well progressed, and this additional capital allows the company to continue the drilling program on an expanded basis. The options exercise by the Founder and CEO - Charles Bass demonstrates a strong signal of support and is encouraging for all shareholders. We look forward to results from the drilling program in due course."
