Zincore was formed in 2006 when Southwestern Resources Corp. spun off its zinc projects to create a new TSX-listed company. Today, the Company's largest shareholder is First Quantum Minerals, one of the World’s leading copper producers.
Zincore’s projects are located near Cusco in the prolific Yauri-Andahuaylas copper belt of southern Peru. The Company’s main property is its 100%-owned, Accha Zinc Oxide District, (“AZOD”) which covers more than 50,000 hectares and benefits from excellent infrastructure given the prolific mining operations and developments in the nearby area. Contained within the AZOD is the Com¬pany’s flagship, the Accha Zinc Oxide District project. A recent Pre-Feasibility Study (“PFS”) demonstrated tremendous progress in moving the AZOD project towards becoming a zinc producing operation.
Also located on the AZOD is the Dolores copper porphyry project. Dolores is being explored through a joint-venture with First Quantum Minerals. In addition, First Quantum has also recently selected three new AZOD Copper Target Areas, Larisa, Alcatraz and Gema, for further exploration. Zincore also owns 100% of the Minasccasa copper-zinc skarn, which is also located within the Yauri-Andahuaylas region, about 200 kilometres to the west of the AZOD.
