Margaux Resources is a mineral acquisition and exploration company focused on the development of zinc, gold and tungsten deposits in the Kootenay Arc, in the southeastern region of British Columbia. The company is directed by a group of highly successful Canadian business executives and has a fast-growing portfolio of previously producing properties that include the Jersey-Emerald mine, which at one point was the 2nd largest historic zinc-lead mine in B.C. and the second largest tungsten mine in North America.
Margaux’s assets are situated in a prolific and mining friendly district near the historic town of Salmo, where Margaux has established a fully operational office in order to facilitate communication with the local community which is a core tenet of the company.
Margaux has a pipeline of projects with both Greenfield and Brownfield potential with excellent infrastructure beneficially located 45km from a zinc-lead smelter.
The earliest record of exploration on the Jersey-Emerald property was back in 1895. Since then the mine has produced both tungsten and lead-zinc, including the Canadian government's commission of tungsten to serve the war effort in WWII. The mine is the second-largest historic lead-zinc mine in British Columbia and the second-largest historic tungsten mine in North America. The Jersey-Emerald has been inactive since 1973.
