Company Overview

 

Trigon is creating shareholder value in Africa. Currently, the company has operations in Namibia and Morocco. In Namibia, Trigon holds an 80% interest in five mining permits in the Otavi Mountainlands, an area of Namibia widely recognized for its high-grade copper deposits, where the Company is focused on exploration and re-development of the previously producing Kombat Mine.
In 2020, the company announced a resource expansion of the Kombat mineral resource from 7 million tonnes to 39.1 million tonnes and acquired the Copper King Extension, with over 30km area of strike length and exploration ground around the Kombat Mine, various known mineral occurrences on the property. Recently, in August 2021, Trigon Metals announced an updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource estimate at the Kombat Mine in Namibia. The indicated tonnage has increased 66% from the previous Mineral Resource estimates, with copper tonnage up 113% and silver 2,253%, resulting in a much larger production profile.

In Morocco, the Company is the holder of the Silver Hill project, a highly prospective copper and silver exploration project.  Trigon owns a 100% interest in the Silver Hill project, a 16km2 property in the Anti-Atlas region of Morocco, home to Africa’s foremost silver mines. The current exploration campaign shows copper and silver mineralization at high grades distributed over a wide area. Slags from ancient workings indicate historical large-scale mining for silver. The project is easily accessed via paved national highways and a well-maintained gravel road sufficient for the requirements of an exploration program.

The company plans to recommence operations at the Kombat Mine with initial production in open pit to resume by end of 2021. The cash flow generated from Kombat will be utilized to fund continuing exploration of Silver Hill and Tamadoult, a second high-grade silver, lead, copper, zinc and cobalt property owned by Trigon in Morocco. Trigon is uniquely positioned to create shareholder value in safe, established districts for mineral exploration in Africa.
