Tintic Consolidated Metals Seeks Strategic Partner for Porphyry Copper Exploration

EAST TINTIC DISTRICT, Utah, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tintic Consolidated Metals LLC (“TCM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it is actively seeking a strategic partner to carry out large-scale Porphyry Copper Exploration and Development in the East Tintic District of Utah, which features:

  • High-sulfidation precious-and base-metal deposits with significant historic production
  • Carbonate replacement and vein deposits
  • Analogous geology to Superior (Arizona) District before discovery of Resolution porphyry deposit
  • Known porphyry-style mineralization (Big Hill, SW Tintic)
  • Major consolidated land position
  • Mining investment-friendly jurisdiction

Tintic Consolidated Metals LLC is seeking a strategic partner to earn-in to a joint venture for the exploration and development of a copper porphyry within TCM’s extensive land package in the Tintic District of Utah. The Company has engaged Richard Leveille, the former President of Freeport McMoran Exploration Corporation, to lead and advise on this porphyry copper exploration process.

The process involves the execution of a confidentiality agreement, whereupon interested parties are given access to the Porphyry Copper Deposit (“PCD”) data base as well as an opportunity for a site visit. Extensive historical and modern mining and exploration data has been compiled and is available in a digital database as well as on site. TCM will proceed with best offer built around earn-in joint venture deal terms.

The indicative timeline requires offers to be received on or before June 1, 2021. In the event that offers acceptable to the members of TCM are presented, TCM will award the Earn-in JV to the best offer by June 30, 2021, with a view to finalizing a definitive agreement by July 30th, 2021. TCM may modify this indicative timeline at its sole discretion.

Several major mining groups have already shown an interest in reviewing the opportunity. Any company interested in receiving the teaser document should contact Stephanie Ashton, VP of Business Development at sashton@igglobalgroup.com.
