The project is in a tier 1 location, it is 35km from Silver City Highway and 60km from established mineral sands mines.
Current Copi JORC resource of >1.2B Tonnes at 1.0% heavy mineral following the 2022 drill program – however the extents of deposit in terms of depth, width and length have yet to be found.
The mineral assemblage of the deposits shows high levels of the valuable rutile and zircon in the heavy mineral concentrate along with leucoxene, ilmenite and rare earth element bearing minerals. The deposit sits within a significant saltwater aquifer, suitable for the establishment of a potential low‐cost dredge mining operation.
The Copi Project is a strandline-type deposit and comprises of both Copi North (EL8312) and Sunshine (EL8385) tenements. RZ Resources is pursuing a strategic drilling program with a clear strategy to build reserves and resources to support a mine life to 15+ years.
