This venture is part of Deer Horn's mission to find solutions for a more sustainable future by partnering with First Nations groups and building long-term cooperation and relationships. Using sustainable techniques, Cheona will target areas in British Columbia and Yukon Territory, regions renowned as globally significant habitat for salmon and other anadromous fish species.
Deer Horn, Cheona Metals and the NGO will work with First Nations, miners, communities, conservationists, agencies, restoration experts and others to produce gold that tells a positive story in the marketplace and demonstrates the value of restoration.
Tyrone Docherty, President and CEO, stated: "We will provide more details on this landmark agreement when we have clearance to do so. However, with the agreement in place and funds advanced to Cheona to begin the process of identifying potential sources of placer gold, we are able, and obligated, to announce preliminary information. We applaud this support for sustainable, small-scale mining. The agreement also aligns perfectly with our mission to build a new revenue model for the junior resource industry by partnering with industry and NGO leaders in critical and strategic metals extraction, manufacturing, supply and research as well as with relevant governmental and educational institutions. It goes a long way towards furthering our vision of helping companies and organizations find solutions for a more sustainable future."
Gold produced from the re-mining and restoration operations will then enter the electronics and jewelry supply chains. This sourcing initiative is part of a larger, multi-agency effort to facilitate increased responsible sourcing from smaller mines while contributing to improved social and environmental performance of the small-scale mining sectors.
Deer Horn Capital is committed to exploring for, and providing, strategic and critical metals vital to a low-carbon economy and for the advancement of technology.
The company's leadership has a track record of project monetization with a board and advisory group that includes industry leaders in finance, mineral property development, geology, mineralogy, solar power, engineering, research and First Nations engagement and economic development.
Deer Horn's flagship property, a gold-silver-tellurium deposit in west-central British Columbia, is located 135 kilometres southwest of the community of Burns Lake and 36 kilometres south of the Huckleberry mine.
