The Company’s CEO, Jeremy Yaseniuk states, “Following this successful earn-in within the last year, CopAur has now acquired a 50.01% ownership interest in the Bolo project, a 79.99% ownership interest in the Kingsley Gold project and a 100% interest in the Troy Canyon property, all in Nevada.  CopAur also has a 100% ownership interest in the Williams gold-copper project in British Columbia and is ideally positioned for further growth and development. This year we will continue focussing on a measured and systematic approach to exploration targets on these projects.  The Company’s initial plan in early 2023 is to focus on the Kingsley gold project and expects to commence further drilling in late January.  Kinsley hosts a Carlin-type gold project with current indicated resources of 418 koz at 2.63 g/t gold and inferred resources of 117 koz at 1.51 g/t gold which will be updated later in the year.”
