Rupert Copper Project
British Columbia, Canada
Project OverviewThe Rupert Project is located approximately 17 km southeast of the community of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada) and is comprised of two claims totaling 2,503 hectares.
The Property is underlain by a generally southward-younging sequence of Upper Triassic to Jurassic rocks belonging to the Vancouver and Bonanza Groups. Major units include the Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic Nahwitti River siltstone-greywacke, Lower to Middle Jurassic Holberg volcanic unit, and roughly coeval Mid Jurassic Island Intrusions.
The Property was staked to target porphyry mineralization along trend from the neighbouring Island Copper Deposit, a past-producer with a long history of mining operations. The properties both share many of the same geological units that are known to host significant mineralization at Island Copper. There is also ongoing success in several geologically similar properties within the belt to the west of Island Copper, namely Hushamu, Red Dog, and Pemberton Hills.
Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Property.
