Kerr is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company based in Toronto, Canada. Kerr’s focus is the acquisition, exploration and development of prospective mineral properties in North America. With a proven track record of making discoveries and managing mines, Kerr’s team seeks assets in low risk jurisdictions to increase its existing resource base, from the exploration drill bit or through strategic acquisitions. Kerr acquired the Copperstone Mine in Arizona in 2014. The mine is fully permitted with significant mining infrastructure, mineral resources and processing infrastructure in place. Kerr has also established a sizeable footprint of contiguous gold properties near Virginiatown, Ontario on the prolific 200-km long Cadillac-Larder Lake Break that straddles the Ontario-Quebec border. Mining properties along the Break have historically produced over 95 million ounces of gold.
