Bronco Creek Exploration (BCE), EMX’s wholly owned subsidiary focused on copper-gold exploration in the western United States, was acquired in early 2010. BCE has an extensive exploration portfolio located in key mining districts of Arizona, Nevada, Idaho and Wyoming. The properties include porphyry copper-molybdenum, porphyry copper-gold, bulk tonnage gold, and high-grade gold-silver vein targets. Many of the projects are currently under joint venture, lease/option, or other partnership agreements.
Our technical team generates exploration targets by employing decades of regional geologic experience, applying leading-edge geologic concepts and models, and by swiftly capitalizing on identified opportunities. BCE and its subsidiaries control more than 54,000 hectares (>137,000 acres) of federal and state mineral rights.
Our team is composed of accomplished geologists who are experienced in the minerals industry at all levels — including exploration, development, and production. Our geologists have made significant contributions to the understanding of multiple ore deposit types (including porphyry, IOCG, and alkaline gold systems) and the reconstruction of extended and dismembered ore deposits of the Basin and Range province of North America. This strategic advantage allows BCE to realize opportunities in diverse geological environments, including reinterpreting the geology of classic mineral districts and recognizing new opportunities in under-explored terrains.
EMX Royalty Corporation develops strategic exploration alliances and other partnerships that leverage our skill set. We invite business partners to join their resources with ours, to pursue the acquisition of new exploration opportunities, and to advance the portfolio of mineral properties we have assembled toward discovery and production.
