Company Profile

Blackthorn Resources Limited is an emerging minerals exploration and mining company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX Code: BTR) with a clear path to production and promising exploration projects.

The Company's goal is to build an asset base that delivers outstanding returns for shareholders and benefits for all stakeholders. It is focused on shareholder value and growth through the acquisition and responsible development of mineral resources and mining projects.

The Company’s key assets are:

  • an equity interest in the high-grade Perkoa Zinc Project in Burkina Faso (27.3% interest);
  • exploration permits in central Burkina Faso prospective for gold and base metals (100% owned); and
  • the Mumbwa Copper-Gold Project in Zambia (100% owned).


Joint venture partner Glencore is funding the development of the Perkoa Zinc Mine. BHP Billiton, having completed funding Phase 4 exploration of the Mumbwa Copper-Gold Project and withdrawn from the Mumbwa JV, retains a 2% production royalty.

 Blackthorn Resources strategy is focused on:

  • leveraging its technical and financial expertise and available funding by entering into strategic alliances;
  • utilising cash to be generated from the investment in the Perkoa Zinc Project to fund future activities;
  • actively exploring for iron oxide copper-gold (“IOCG”) in Zambia and gold/base metals in Burkina Faso; and
  • acquiring base and precious metal projects at varying stages of development.


Blackthorn Resources aims to comply with leading practice in corporate governance, health, safety and environmental standards.
