The proceeds of the proposed investment will be used for the development of the McIlvenna Bay project towards commercial production, Foran said.
McIlvenna Bay is said to be the largest undeveloped Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposit along the prolific Flin Flon Greenstone Belt, which sprawls east-central Saskatchewan and the central area of Manitoba.
Recent feasibility results outlined an initial phase 18 year mine life producing 65 million pounds of copper equivalent at an average all-in sustaining cost (net of credits) of $0.90 per pound.
Foran is also trying to turn McIlvenna Bay into the world’s first carbon-neutral copper mine by offsetting carbon emissions generated in the exploration phase.
The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, with more than $240 billion in net assets, has investments in natural resources and royalty interests in oil and gas.
