Overview

Regulus Resources Inc. (TSX V.REG) is a Canadian exploration company formed in December 2010 under the directorship of the former management of Antares Minerals Inc. (TSX V.ANM): John E. Black, Dr. Kevin B. Heather and Mark Wayne. Regulus was created through the spin-out of the Rio Grande Cu-Au project in Argentina at the conclusion of the sale of Antares to First Quantum Minerals (TSX.FM, UK FQM) for approximately C$650 million, primarily for the giant Haquira Cu-Mo-Au deposit in Peru.

Regulus’ focus is on the AntaKori project in Northern Peru where it drilled continuously throughout 2018. The Phase I drilling program (20,332 m through to hole AK-18-027) was completed by October 2018 and was utilized to calculate the updated Resource Estimate reported on March 1, 2019 (see news here).  Upon conclusion of the Phase I drilling program, the Company entered directly into the Phase II drilling program. 

Regulus also spun out its Rio Grande project, Aguas Calientes project and its other Argentina assets forming a new exploration company, Aldebaran Resources Inc. (TSX V.ALDE) in October 2018.

Significant Shareholders:
Insiders 14%
Route One Investment Company 23.62%

Following Antares’ successful monetization of the Haquira asset in Peru and the merger with Pachamama, Regulus maintains significant strategic alliances with Farallon Capital (San Francisco), the International Finance Corporation (IFC: member of the World Bank, Washington DC) and First Quantum Minerals Ltd, which collectively hold an aggregate 24% of the shares of Regulus.

Company Focus Strategy

Regulus will continue drilling its Phase II drilling program to work towards definition of the full size of the mineralized system.
