Barksdale Resources Corp., a member of the 2023 OTCQX Best 50, is a base metal exploration company headquartered in Vancouver, B.C., that is focused on the acquisition, exploration and advancement of highly prospective base metal projects in North America. Barksdale is currently advancing the Sunnyside copper-zinc-lead-silver and San Antonio copper projects, both of which are in the Patagonia mining district of southern Arizona, as well as the San Javier copper-gold project in central Sonora, Mexico.
Our Flagship Sunnyside:
The Sunnyside Project is in the Patagonia Mountains of southern Arizona, approximately an hour and a half drive south of Tucson (population ~530,000). The project is approximately 21km2 (5,223 acres) and is cored by a large intrusive complex that is thought to have driven a large hydrothermal system that created a classically zoned copper porphyry and associated distal deposits. The primary near-term exploration target is a skarn located on the northeast margin of the intrusive complex that is likely to host copper-zinc-lead-silver mineralization interpreted to be the extension of the world-class Taylor deposit (South32). Planned systematic exploration on the project will proceed once exploration permits are in place mmenently.
Our flagship Sunnyside is adjacent to South32's developement project Taylor Hermosa, the worlds largest CRD system.
