% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Doré Copper Mining Corp said it has hired Sylvain Lépine as its vice-president (VP) of exploration with immediate effect.

Lépine has over 15 years’ experience in the mining industry, mainly in gold and base metals in Québec, and was president of the Rouyn-Noranda chapter of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) from 2013 to 2019.

He joined Yorbeau Resources Inc in 2015 and was appointed VP Exploration in 2020. He had the same role at Cogitore Resources Inc from 2013 to 2015.

“We welcome Sylvain to Doré Copper to the newly created position of Vice President Exploration,” Ernest Mast, CEO of Doré Copper told investors in a statement. “His extensive experience in the Chibougamau area and the Abitibi region of Québec will be instrumental to our strategy of advancing the Corporation’s assets.”

Doré wants to be the next copper producer in Québec with a production target of  over 50 million pounds (Mlbs) of copper equivalent annually by implementing a hub-and spoke operation model with multiple high-grade copper-gold assets feeding its centralized 2,700 tonnes per day mill.

It expects to deliver a preliminary economic assessment  (PEA) by the end of the first quarter of 2022 and then initiate a feasibility study and permit applications

The company boasts a large land package in the prolific Lac Doré/Chibougamau and Joe Mann mining camps that has produced 1.6 billion pounds of copper and 4.4 million ounces of gold. The package includes 13 former producing mines, deposits and resource target areas within a 60-kilometre radius of the  firm’s Copper Rand Mill.
