George Ogilvie, Elim Mining President, and CEO said, “I am eager to begin working with the team and continuing the development of the Cactus porphyry copper project. This is a fantastic opportunity in mining-friendly Arizona to re-develop a high-quality former mine with a multi-billion-pound copper resource. We aim to develop Cactus into a sustainable copper mine, thus supplying copper to the US for future infrastructure and green energy projects, all while bringing value to the local communities, Elim shareholders, and all Elim stakeholders. With permitting well-underway, the preliminary economic assessment nearing its completion, and a high-performing operations team, I will continue to build on the foundation already put into place. Over the next couple of years, we expect to issue a PEA, a PFS, and DFS and secure the required funding to advance the asset to the start of construction.”
