Doré Copper Mining’s (TSXV: DCMC – OTCQB:DRCMF) assets contain some of the highest-grade undeveloped copper and gold deposits in North America. The company’s projects are located just 14 km from the town of Chibougamau in mine-friendly Quebec and are one of Canada’s premier near-term redevelopment opportunities. Doré Copper is debt-free and owns a 2,700 tpd mill with a 8.0Mt tailings facility. There is already power to site and it is accessible by paved highway and rail. The goal is to produce a profitable hub-and-spoke operation of +100,000 oz/yr AuEq or +60 M lbs CuEq by 2023/2024. Because of the existing infrastructure and location, a low capex is anticipated to recommence production. In this interview, Doré Copper Mining’s president and CEO Ernest Mast provides an overview of the company’s investment value proposition, describes why the company is undervalued and explains the plans for 2021.
