There are two main copper ore types of interest, copper oxide ores and copper sulfide ores.
Both ore types can be economically mined, however, the most common source of copper ore is the sulfide ore mineral chalcopyrite, which accounts for about 50 percent of copper production. We have access to remarkable resources of copper ore in the North Waziristan region of Pakistan. Our copper mine’s core drill survey has estimated a deposit size of 30 million tons with an average copper grade of 0.4%. Silver and Gold are also associated minerals in our copper mine. We mine both high and low grade ores. Lower grade ores are stocked up for the copper floatation plant while the higher grades get exported.
