“We are delighted to engage in discussions with JX Metals about moving our Omu project forward,” commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, director and technical advisor to Irving. “When we first acquired the Omu project in 2016, we did so based upon our business model of developing high-silica deposits suitable for use as smelter flux in the expansive Japanese base metal smelting industry. At Omu, we have identified several precious metal-bearing silica deposits including the large, shallow body of hot spring silica at Omu Sinter. We have also identified numerous precious metal-rich high-silica veins at Omui, Hokuryu and Omu Sinter. Our vision is to develop such deposits into a long-lived source of smelter flux, and JX Metals Corporation shares our goal. In addition, we believe that the revitalization of this industry is essential for reinvigorating economic development in rural areas of Japan.”
