Barksdale Resources is adjacent to a $1.7 billion mine development

Kitco News

(Kitco News) - DBarksdale Resources CEO Rick Trotman is keeping a close eye on his neighbor.

Last month Trotman spoke to Kitco Mining at Deutsche Goldmesse in Frankfurt.

Barksdale Resources (TSX-V:BRO) is a base-metal exploration company headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. The company is advancing its Sunnyside copper-zinc-lead-silver project in southern Arizona.

Sunnyside project is adjacent to a "world-class deposit" owned by South32, the Hermosa project.

South32 is spending $1.7 billion to develop Hermosa.

"Sunnyside is our flagship asset in Arizona," said Trotman. "It's right next door to something that's quite incredible. Our neighbors are building a very big mine on a resource that effectively ends at our property boundary, so what we're looking is getting our permits for drilling and getting in there to see how much of this world-class asset is actually sitting on our side of the fence."

Kitco Mining's coverage of Deutsche Goldmesse was sponsored by Faraday Copper.
