McEwen, Rio Tinto to jointly develop copper project in Nevada

Elder Creek is an early-stage copper-gold porphyry project, located about 9 km from SSR Mining’s Marigold mine complex in northern Nevada.

It consists of 577 unpatented mining claims in Nevada, which is prospective for porphyry copper mineralization and well placed in a district hosting several large copper and gold mines, including Marigold, Lone Tree and Phoenix.

McEwen holds a 1.25% net smelter return royalty on all the claims that comprise the Elder Creek property.

The company also owns Los Azules copper project in San Juan, Argentina. This is an advanced large-scale porphyry copper exploration project located in the Andean Cordillera copper belt, about 90 km (56 miles) north of Glencore’s El Pachón project and near the border with Chile.
