Blackthorn Resources

Blackthorn supports African Communities through the Nantou Foundation

Blackthorn Resources Limited (ASX: BTR) is an Australian-based resources company that is unearthing value from a diverse portfolio of base and precious metal projects in Africa.

The high-grade Perkoa Zinc Mine in Burkina Faso is targeting commencement of production and first shipment of concentrate in the second half of 2013. Joint venture partner Glencore Xstrata is managing and operating the mine, as well as funding mine development.

Blackthorn Resources is currently exploring for base metals in Burkina Faso. An initial gold resource was defined at the Guido Prospect during 2010. Grassroots exploration of the Company’s extensive exploration permits is at an early stage and numerous targets remain to be thoroughly drill tested.

In Zambia, the Mumbwa Copper-Gold Project is exploring for large Iron Oxide Copper-Gold (“IOCG”) deposits, similar to the style of mineralisation found at the Olympic Dam and Prominent Hill mines in South Australia, and the Ernest Henry mine in Queensland. An updated (April 2013) Kitumba In-situ Inferred Mineral Resource at Kitumba is now a total of 21.3 Mt @ 0.77% Cu and Indicated Mineral Resource of 87.6 Mt @ 1.17% Cu, using 0.5% Cu cut-off. Joint venture partner BHP Billiton amicably announced their intention to withdraw from the JV in 2011. Blackthorn Resources now owns 100% in the Mumbwa Project.
