About Us

The Copper King Project is prospective for bulk tonnage supergene (oxide copper) and hypogene (sulphide) copper and molybdenum mineralization. Surface geology, copper and molybdenum metal zonation defined by surface rock sampling as well as a very large (1 km by 1 km) alteration zone suggest the Copper King Project represents the top and/or side of an intact porphyry system. Locally intense calc-silicate alteration of moderately inclined sedimentary wall rocks in addition to copper oxide and copper sulphide minerals present in both wall rocks and porphyritic intrusions may represent leakage from an intact but unexposed porphyry system.

Corporate
Desert Star Resources is a Vancouver-based mineral exploration company focused on the identification, acquisition and development of copper and gold projects located in top-tier mineral belts in the southwestern United States that contain significant historical production, existing mining infrastructure and an established mining culture.
Tech Reports
The only evidence of historic exploration present on the property are drill access roads which likely provided access to the nearby Silver King deposit in the mid-late 1970s. As with the Red Top Project, no modern systematic porphyry copper exploration has been conducted on the Copper King Project. Desert Star plans to conduct a targeted surface geological mapping program,
