SEMCO Project

Location

SEMCO is located on the Mindanao island, within the Surigao – Agusan mineral district, which is host to several known epithermal and porphyry Cu and Au deposits such as the Siana Gold Mine of Greenstone Resources Corporation with a resource of > 2M ounces and the Boyungan Cu-Au Deposit of Silangan Mining Corporation with a resource of >300 Mt @ 0.6% Cu and 0.6 Au g/t.

Size

4,395 hectares

Mineralization

Epithermal gold veining and porphyry copper-gold

Type of Permit

4 Exploration Permits (EP)

Level of Exploration

Regional mapping, soil sampling, petrography, IP geophysical ​survey and 3,000m diamond drilling

Small-scale mining

SEMCO currently has legalised small-scale miners operating on site under a Minahang Bayan approved by the DENR. Miners need prior approval from Semco and operate on a royalty basis at the tenement, allowing us to ensure safe mining practices. Ore material from small scale mining averages to about 0.5 to 2 g/t Au per 40kg sacks.
