Company Overview

Imperial is a British Columbia explorer, developer and mining operator.

Our history dates back to December 1959 when Imperial Metals & Power Ltd. was incorporated in British Columbia. Over the past six decades, Imperial has undergone several transitions to become the Company we are today. In 1995 the Company merged with Bethlehem Resources Corporation, in 2002 we reorganized our corporate structure and divested our oil and gas assets with a renewed focus on base metals, and in 2007 we acquired American Bullion Ltd. and the Red Chris project.

Imperial is embarking on another major transition. The Company has entered into an agreement to sell a 70% interest in the Red Chris asset. We will form a joint venture with Newcrest Mining Limited which will enable the Company to unlock significant value at Red Chris mine by leveraging Newcrest’s unique technical expertise in block caving operations.

Objectives for 2019

  • complete Red Chris joint venture transaction with Newcrest Mining Limited (closing expected in Q3 2019)
  • review all exploration data at Mount Polley, and develop an exploration program while conducting monitoring and rehabilitation of breach affected areas
  • evaluate alternate mine plans to optimize Huckleberry mine future operating performance, and the potential to extend the life of the mine
  • continue exploration on Huckleberry property to test known areas of mineralization and other defined targets which are not part of the existing development area
  • continue baseline sampling in support of ongoing permitting to advance Ruddock Creek mine development
  • continue exploration on our existing property portfolio and evaluate new opportunities
