The Unkur Project: A High Grade Silver Copper Deposit in the Zabaikalsky Region, Russia
Unkur is a high grade silver-copper deposit in the Zabaikalsky Region of Siberia, Russia. Historic drilling delineated a significant resource with grades of 68.3 g/t silver and 0.78% copper. Azarga Metals Corp. (AZR) is completing a 5,000 meter drilling program and will publish a maiden 43-101 resource early in 2017; a PEA (Scoping Study) is planned for late 2017.

Mineralization at Unkur has been traced for over 5 kilometres. The historic resource remains open along strike and down dip. Numerous additional exploration targets with geochemical and geophysical signatures have been identified throughout the license area.

Mineral tenure is secure and infrastructure/access are excellent. AZR holds Unkur via a 30-year exploitation license granted by the Russian government. The project is located less than 8 kilometres from the main line of the Baikal-Amur railroad and the federal 200-MW power line passes across a corner of the Unkur license. Udokan, one of the world’s largest undeveloped copper deposits, is less than 25 kilometres from Unkur.
