IG Global Group is a private international holding company focused on the exploration and development of world class mineral deposits. The Company’s collective consists of mineral exploration, mining operations and mining service companies with projects and clients in the United States, the Russian Far East, and the Republic of Kazakhstan.
IG Global Group was founded in 2010 by Thomas E. Bowens, a Certified Professional Geologist, with degrees in Economics, Geological Engineering (Magna Cum Laude) and a master’s degree in Geology (Colorado School of Mines). IGG brings together experienced professionals with proven skills as well as innovators in their fields with meticulously selected technical consultants who are well-versed in the latest industry exploration and mine development techniques and technologies.
Since the inception of its Russian operations, the IGG team has made two greenfield discoveries – the Svetloye High Sulfidation Epithermal Gold Deposit containing 1.3 Moz (39t) of gold, which was sold to Polymetal Corp. in 2009 and the world class Malmyzh Copper-Gold Porphyry Deposit containing in excess of 7.2 million tons of copper equivalent metal. The deposit was sold to Russia Copper Company in 2018 for $200M and is currently in advanced exploration/pre-development. IGG’s work at Malmyzh gave the world a new regional scale prospective belt for porphyry copper-gold deposits.
Since 2019, through IG Tintic LLC, IG became the 75% operating partner of a joint venture with Chief Consolidated Mining Corporation, together forming Tintic Consoldiated Metals with a large land package over a very rich polymetallic district in Utah with multiple past producing mines and extensive exploration potential for both precious and base metals. In Russia’s Far East, the IG team is developing the Durmin gold and silver deposit, while also exploring the property for another potential major copper-moly-gold deposit. These projects are on track to becoming the next IG major discoveries and mineral developments.
IGG has the capability, commitment, creativity and insights to rapidly advance projects from concept, through exploration, to discovery and production.
