Prize Mining Corporation (TSX-V: PRZ) is a well capitalized exploration company based in Canada. The Company’s flagship Manto Negro Copper Project has near-term production potential, a large land position with good thicknesses giving the project potential for size; has strong grades that average 1.5% to 2% Cu with significant silver, lead and zinc credits, and gives the company a strong position in the developing electrified world. Today, electric vehicles (EV) use 4 times more copper than traditional vehicles. All indicators point to Copper being poised to track the growth of the EV market and experts predict strong demand & cost inflation to drive prices higher in the very near future. As well as being bullish on the near term prospects for copper, we are equally interested in the long term outlook for Gold. Our Kena-Daylight Gold project is located in British Columbia and for the first time is being looked at from a district wide approach. The Kena Property has a NI 43-101 resource of an indicated 481,000 ounces of gold as well as an inferred 1,318,000 ounces of gold. The Daylight claims have four historical producing mines with grades as high as 37 g/t gold. The Company’s focus on the Daylight Property is on four large gold-bearing targets. The Company remains committed to adding ounces through both drilling and acquisition and offers a managed approach with a big picture outlook.
