The Black Butte Copper Project depends on both local and global expertise.
By leveraging Montana talent and resources alongside professionals and companies from around the world, the Black Butte Copper Project will feature some of the industry’s most innovative and environmentally conscientious mining practices in use today.
GEOLOGY & GEOCHEMISTRY
A strong understanding of the land, including the rock types and their chemistry, the surface landscape and conditions underground, has helped us design a safe, underground mining project that protects the environment.
WATER QUALITY & QUANTITY
Protecting the Smith River Valley watershed is crucial. Our team of professionals and independent environmental consultants are experienced in gathering accurate data about both water quality and quantity. They have the expertise to analyze information correctly to ensure we protect all water resources and adhere to all legal standards and requirements.
We are committed to environmental protection. From collecting five years of baseline data, to instituting a culture of going above and beyond, we’ve designed a mine that will have a small footprint, will be reclaimed as we go, and will return the land to grazing cattle when mine operations end.
LOCAL STAFF & LEADERSHIP
The leaders of the Black Butte Copper Project value honesty and integrity above all in moving this project forward.
We are proud to be part of the community of White Sulphur Springs and enjoy working with local businesses to ensure our project is done right from the beginning.

Our 21st century mine design optimizes environmental protection.
