Red Chris Information

  • Geology 2016-01-16
    The porphyry copper-gold deposit is located on the eastern segment of the Todagin Upland Plateau, a subdivision of the Klastine Plateau along the northern margin of the Skeena Mountains. The deposit consists of intrusive rocks believed to have formed during Late Triassic to Early Jurassic period. The deposit is hosted by the Red Stock, an east-north-east elongated intrusive body composed of plagioclase, hornblende and biotite-phyric porphyry phases of subalkaline to silica-saturated alkaline compositions. Red Chris shows the characteristics of both alkalic and calc-alkalic porphyry copper deposits. Copper sulphide mineralisation occurs in quartz veins and in micro fractures, and most of the mineralisation is located in the central part of the property.
  • Mining 2016-01-16
    Conventional shovel and truck mining methods are applied at the open pit mine. The east and main zones of the deposit are proposed to be mined separately initially and later merged into a single pit.
  • General 2015-05-10
    Imperial Metals Corporation announced that the Red Chris mine trucked its first shipments of copper concentrate to the Port of Stewart, BC on February 27, 2015. The mine is being commissioned.
