New Yukon Copper Miner: Gladiator Metals

The Whitehorse Copper Project in the Yukon produced some 330 million pounds of copper between 1967 and 1982.

The high-grade ore — 10 million tonnes of it at 1.5% copper, plus gold and silver credits — came from both open pit and underground workings under the banner of Hudbay Mining. Whitehorse contains 30 known skarn prospects with a 35km x 5km area, many of which outcrop at surface, but hasn’t seen any modern exploration in 40 years.

The project has since been consolidated by the Coyne family, of Yukon fame, and is now in a new vehicle with great structure and people, ready to benefit from and help meet the world’s significant copper needs.

In 2022, Gladiator Metals (TSX-V: GLAD) optioned the right to acquire 100% of the Whitehorse Copper Project, and has been busy relogging core and drilling new holes ever since. 

Gladiator's President Marcus Harden gave an update on progress at the recent Metals Investor Forum in Vanvouver. You can watch his presentation below.
