Malmyzh is an advanced copper-gold exploration property, 220kms north of Khabarovsk, Russia. Malmyzh is one of the largest developable copper-gold projects in the world today.

Malmyzh Summary

  • 15 targets have been drilled to date, all hosting Cu-Au mineralization
  • Officially listed Russian Reserves and resources based on 4 key deposits
  • Resources are approved on additional 10 drill targets
  • Advanced exploration works are under way.
  • Excellent potentional for discovery of additional & higher grade mineralization
  • Russian TEO (Scoping Study) suggests robust economics for the entire Project and a 25-37 Year mine life: NPV10 $1.7bn and a 30% IRR

IG Copper & Malmyzh

  • IG Copper owns 51% of the 2.32Bt (C1, C2 and P1) * Malmyzh copper-gold porphyry project, located in Russia.
  • Malmyzh is believed by IG Copper to be the world’s largest undeveloped developable copper-gold project in the world.
  • The project has an estimated Copper equivalent grade of 0.48% containing: 12mt of copper equivalent or 60moz of gold equivalent*.
  • The project has a NPV10 of US$1.7bn and an IRR of 30%.
