The resource also includes silver and gold credits. Kutcho will mine the main deposit using conventional open pit mining, followed by a long-hole longitudinal open-pit underground operation with cemented rip-rap for the deeper deposit and the Esso deposit.

The project, which has the financial backing of the streaming giant of precious metals Wheaton Precious Metals, plans to produce 533 million pounds of copper, 841 million pounds of zinc and 10.6 million ounces of silver and approximately 130,000 ounces of gold over the life of the mine.
