About Us

ARC Minerals, (formerly Ortac Resources) is engaged in the identification, evaluation, acquisition and development of natural resource projects, located primarily in Africa

We provide our shareholders and investors with an opportunity to benefit from our strategy that involves the development of our investments where we work to take proven discovered mineral projects particularly in the gold, copper and cobalt segments, up the value curve to positions where these projects can either be brought into cash producing mining operations, or become attractive for other investors which can help a liquidity event for ARC shareholders.
