Tell us about Mines Callinex Inc.
Callinex has assets across Canada in key jurisdictions, says Porterfield, and says the company is focusing on mining camps with existing workforce and infrastructure. Being extremely remote is a high risk business considering the costs of transportation, water and electricity supply, etc. Staying in Canadian mining districts, however, reduces some of that risk and significantly helps up-front investment costs, which in turn lowers the threshold for a deposit to be economically viable.
What made you decide to invest heavily in Callinex?
Callinex is experiencing tremendous growth, notes Porterfield, and says its expertise in discovering high-grade copper and gold in Manitoba is unmatched. He also says his actions have gained significant momentum recently and points to the track record of his technical experts, including founder and Canadian Mining Hall of Fame member Mike Muzylowski, who was instrumental in the discovery of 12 mines.

What is Callinex currently working on?
Porterfiled points to the rapidly expanding Rainbow deposit located in the Flin Flon mining district. Rainbow is a high grade copper deposit that also contains gold, silver and zinc and is located within 500m of a hydroelectric power line and historic well. Rainbow is a newly discovered deposit located within thirty minutes of existing road access to processing facilities in Flin Flon, MB.

Rainbow has the potential to provide a sustainable future for the city and a clean supply of copper given its high grades and access to clean energy at low cost.
