Amur Minerals

Amur Minerals LLC was formed and registered in Khabarovsk in May 2005. The owner of Amur Minerals LLC (interest 100%) is “Khabarovsk Minerals LLC” (before February 2011 named “Phelps Dodge Khabarovsk, LLC”. At present the owners of “Khabarovsk Minerals LLC” and, consequently, of Amur Minerals LLC, are foreign companies:

  • Inter Geo Copper LLC (51%),
  • Freeport-McMoRan Exploration Corporation (48%),
  • Freeport-McMoRan Corporation (1%).


The company owns two licenses on prospecting, exploration and mining bedrock gold, copper and accompanying components: HAB 02018 BR (Malmyzh ore field) granted in 2006 for 20 years and HAB 02334 BR (Northern Malmyzh prospect) granted in 2010 for 20 years. On the whole, the licenses characterize the same ore-bearing structure. As a result of the license area prospecting there is identified a big copper porphyry ore system, on the plan representing a NE linearly elongated structure about 16 km long with the width up to 6-8 km. At the current stage it is regarded as the same big deposit, in which there are identified targets with mineralization of variable intensity. The sizes of the targets are from 0,2-0,3 km2 to 3-4 km2. The areas of mineralized (ore) stockworks: from the first hundred sq m to 1,8 km2. Four big ore targets (Central, Flats, Valley, and Freedom) and ten smaller ore targets are identified at the deposit.

Ore mineralization is classified as gold-copper porphyry industrial type of large-scale stockwork lodes.

The TEO of temporary exploration conditions and estimate of reserves of copper and gold of categories C1+C2 for four industry-significant ore targets of Malmyzh deposit was prepared on the grounds of evaluation works. For smaller ore targets an estimate of inferred resources of category P1 was given.

The TEO and estimate of reserves of copper and gold for Malmyzh deposit were approved by the State Commission on Mineral Reserves in the authors’ variant (Minutes #4163-op of April 10, 2015, approved on 05/15/2015).

On balance economic reserves of categories C1+C2 made: ore – 1261 mln t;  copper – 5156,4 Kt, with average grade – 0,41%; gold – 278098,2 kg, with average grade – 0,21 g/t. Off-balance non-economic reserves of categories C1+C2: ore – 129,2 mln t; copper – 477,7 Kt, with average grade – 0,37%; gold – 19722,2 kg, with average grade – 0,15 g/t.
