Program: Update on the Florence Copper Project with Dan Johnson, Vice President and General Manager

Sponsor:  Major Drilling America Inc.

Program: Dan Johnson will provide an update on the Florence Copper Project. Florence Copper Inc. proposes to build and operate an in-situ copper recovery (ISCR) facility in Florence, Arizona.  The in-situ process occurs from 400 to 1200 feet below ground in a bedrock lay beneath the lower aquifer unit. The deposit contains 2.4 billion pounds of copper in 340 million tons of probable reserves.  Florence Copper is in the advanced permitting stages for a 2-year Production Test Facility (PTF). Taseko Mines Ltd. will spend approximately $208 million dollars to build the Florence Copper project.  Full commercial life of the project is expected to be 25 years.

Speaker: Dan Johnson is General Manager, Florence Copper
