McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE: MUX) (TSX: MUX) is an asset-rich diversified gold and silver producer in the Americas. In addition, the company has a large exposure to copper through its subsidiary McEwen Copper, owner of the Los Azules copper deposit in Argentina, believed to be the 9th largest undeveloped copper resource in the world. “McEwen Mining is a 68% shareholder in McEwen Copper, holder of a 100% interest in the Los Azules copper project in San Juan, Argentina… Its current copper resources are estimated at 10.2 billion pounds at a grade of 0.48% Cu (Indicated category) and an additional 19.3 billion pounds at a grade of 0.33% Cu (Inferred category). McEwen Copper also owns a copper exploration project in Nevada, called Elder Creek,” reads a recent article. “In a 2017 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”), Los Azules was estimated to have a 36-year life, but indications are that the project could ultimately become an even larger mine, with a longer life, since in the assessment, only 55% of the known copper resources are to be mined. Numerous drill holes have shown strong copper mineralization extending below the PEA pit bottom. Its average annual production for its first 13 years was pegged at 415 million pounds of copper in the 2017 PEA – enough copper to supply 2.2 million electric vehicles per year.”
