Imperial Metals Corporation ("Imperial") ( TSX:III ), whose securities comprise 4.9% of Fund assets, posted record production results in 2015: 88.1 million pounds of copper, 44.7 thousand ounces of gold, and 224.5 thousand ounces of silver. During the year, the company focused on ramping up its world-class Red Chris mine that is expected to produce copper at cash costs around $1.20 per pound for decades to come. While primarily known for its huge copper reserve, Red Chris also boasts the seventh largest gold deposit in the world. We anticipate that Imperial will prudently weather this commodity cycle while preparing for the next development phase at Red Chris.
