Sheffield Resources Ltd. is an exploration and development company focused on the acquisition and systematic exploration of advanced-stage copper projects with the goal of advancing them to production. Sheffield's 100% owned Moonlight project in Plumas County, California was held by Placer Dome for 30 years, but as a result of low copper prices in 1993, they dropped the project to focus on Gold. The property sat idle until it was acquired by Sheffield last year. Sheffield CEO, David Jenkins was employed by a Placer Dome predecessor company and was aware of the Moonlight project while it sat in Placer's exploration portfolio for 30 years. Once he took the helm at Sheffield, engineers reevaluated the geological data base and found the potential is there to greatly enhance the value of the deposit.
