Rio Tinto Joint Venture Agreement
In March 2018, the company announced that it had entered into a Joint Venture Agreement wiht Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration limited with respect to the Majdanpek project licenses. For further information please refer to Raiden Resources’ press release.
The Majdanpek project is located in eastern Serbia in a long-lived mining district, with appropriate infrastructure to support large mining projects. The municipality, including Majdanpek town, comprises a population of approximately 19,000.
Road traffic network is well developed within the exploration area. Railroad Bor-Majdanpek passes through the exploration area.

Majdanpek Project Geology
The Majdanpek licence comprises volcanics of the Timok Complex overlying Jurassic limestones. This sequence is in faulted contact with Proterozoic Gneiss. Cretaceous andesitic sub-volcanic intrusives are located within the project and locally associated with copper occurrences. Jurassic limestones, as also found at the Majdanpek deposit approximately 4km from the project, occur within the project and are considered prospective for skarn-type mineralization.
The Majdanpek deposit and mine is regionally significant and comprises a complex of several types of mineralization formed in multistage processes: dominant porphyry copper-gold mineralization with molybdenite, massive sulphide, pyrite bodies, skarnmagnetite and hydrothermal Pb-Zn sulphides in the form of massive-metasomatic bodies and ore veins (Jelenkovic et al., 2016).
The project is in close proximity to a significant porphyry-copper deposit, and contains the same broad host-rocks to mineralization (volcanics, sub-volcanic intrusives, carbonates). The carbonate-bearing lithologies are considered prospective for skarn-type deposits and the volcanics for porphyry and epithermal Cu-Au.
