Arizona Gold Corp. (formerly "Kerr Mines Inc.") is a North American gold development company currently looking to re-start its 100% owned, fully permitted, past-producing Copperstone project.

Copperstone is a high-grade gold project located along the Arizona Detachment Fault Corridor in mining-friendly Arizona, USA. Copperstone has multi-million ounce exploration potential within a 50 square kilometers (12,258 acres) land package.

The Company’s current short term focus is to further enhance Copperstone’s value by defining and expanding current gold resources and mine life while further optimizing Copperstone’s project economics leading to a restart of gold production, as a result of the recent project funding transaction entered into with Star Royalties Ltd.

    • 145,700 oz. Inferred mineral resource
    • 175,000 oz. Proven & Probable mineral reserves
  • 50 square kilometers (12,258 acres) land package
  • Multi-million ounce potential
  • Project funding US$18 million

Development Plans

Management is focused on re-starting production in Q4-2021. AZG has all the required permits for a 600 tpd operation. The Company is moving ahead with the 2018 PFS’ (Preliminary Feasibility Study) proposed plan to utilize a Whole Ore Leach (“WOL”) mineral processing plant, which utilizes direct cyanidation leaching of the entire ore feed.

2021 Resource Expansion & In Fill Program

  • Current success driven core and reverse circulation drilling program of up to 10,000 meters. Assay results currently pending.
  • Conversion of Inferred to Measured and Indicated resources.
  • Resource Expansion on surface to add Inferred resources for later conversion with underground access.
  • Resource Update in Q2-2021 to include up to 13,000 meters drilled.

Updated Resource in Q2-2021

The Company intends to complete an updated resource estimate in Q2-2021, which will include data from 13,000 m of drilling since 2018 (5,000 m in 2019, and 8,000 m in 2020/2021). The Company is expecting a significant increase in tonnage and ounces for the updated resource estimate. Note that the 2019 program had already increased tonnage and contained ounces through step-out holes.
