Some information on the company’s projects are as following:

Artvin Dereiçi Project

The project is located within the borders of the province of Artvin at a distance of 66 km to the city. The geology of the license area of 1,680 hectares consists of volcanic-sediment sequences. In the prospecting site, massive sulphide & porphyry type Cu-Pb-Zn and Au-Ag mineralization is observed widely.

A total of 27.142 meters (at 121 diamond drill holes) of core drilling has been completed in the license area. In terms of geophysical works, a total of 120,900 m IP/RES has been measured on 58 lines by the Pole-Dipole method whereas a total of 88,670 meters of magnetic measures have been taken on 43 lines.

To determine the distribution of Cu Zn Pb Mo Au Ag mineralized zones, 4352 laboratory analysis results were evaluated. Preliminary ore modeling/resource estimate and metallurgical testworks have been completed.

Detailed exploration field studies for resource enhancement in license area are in progress.

To determine the distribution of Pb Zn Cu & Au Ag mineralized zones, 3041 laboratory analysis results were evaluated. With present licenses, general geologic mapping have been completed. Resource enhancement studies are continuing. Preliminary ore modeling/resource estimate and metallurgical tests of the area have been accomplished.

Detailed works for resource enhancement in license area are in progress.
