Phoenix Copper's Flagship Operation
The Empire open pit oxide copper deposit is the Company's flagship operation. Located near Mackay, Idaho, USA, Empire is in development stage for copper, gold, and silver production.
Phoenix Copper Limited (PXC) has an 80% interest in Konnex, the owner of the Empire Mine project. The Empire Mine originally operated as an underground mine from 1901 to 1942 and shipped copper ore 6% to 8% copper and 6.6 gram/tonne gold. In 2015, Phoenix signed an option agreement to acquire an 80% interest in Konnex Resources Inc. In 2017, Phoenix IPO'd on the LSE: AIM and satisfied the option agreement to acquire the 80% interest in Konnex.
PXC is proud to partner with local and regional stakeholders, as well as mining professionals to develop the Empire open pit copper mine as a low-cost, low-carbon footprint producer of copper, gold, and silver.
The Empire Mine is currently in permitting and feasibility stage engineering.
