Acquisition Of Significant New Tenement Package Adjacent To Lana Corina

Culpeo Minerals Limited (“Culpeo” or the “Company”) (ASX:CPO, OTCQB:CPORF) is pleased to announce the acquisition of an 80% interest in the Fortuna Project, approximately 10km north of its existing Lana Corina Copper and Molybdenum Project in the highly prospective Coastal Belt of Chile.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Complementary acquisition of 80% interest in the Fortuna Project increases copper exploration landholdings by 300% in the highly prospective coastal metallogenic belt of Chile.
  • No upfront consideration, with trailing monthly payments over a five-year period totalling US$600,0001.
  • Untested Fortuna Project hosts multiple broad zones of copper mineralisation outcropping at surface, measuring 1,000m in length and 500m in width (Figure 1).
  • Historical channel sampling at surface returned wide, high-grade zones including:
    • 150m @ 1.31% CuEq2;
    • 102m @ 1.25% CuEq; and
    • 173m @ 0.86% CuEq.
  • The Fortuna Project is highly complementary to Culpeo’s Lana Corina Project, which returned drill intersections of 257m @ 1.10% CuEq3, 173m @ 1.09% CuEq4 and 169m @ 1.21% CuEq5.
  • The new concessions are fully granted, allowing rapid exploration.

Culpeo Minerals’ Managing Director, Max Tuesley, commented:

“The coastal metallogenic belt that hosts the Lana Corina Project, is a highly prospective district, proven by our discovery of the significant outcropping copper and molybdenum mineralisation at the Lana Corina Project.

“Knowledge gained over the past 18 months during exploration drilling programs at Lana Corina and the identification of widespread copper at Vista Montana, coupled with our understanding of the wider regional controls of mineralisation, has enabled us to identify multiple additional projects and secure favourable exploration areas for the Company with the Fortuna Project.

“Our exploration team continue to look for opportunities to create and accelerate shareholder value, evidenced by this significant increase to our copper footprint within the region”.

Fortuna Project

The Fortuna Project concessions are located 10km north of Lana Corina and consist of four additional prospects: La Florida, El Quillay, Vaca Muerta and Piedra Dura (Figure 2). Extensive outcropping copper mineralisation and historic mining operations are present throughout the project area (Figure 3).

Forum Energy: Ambient Noise Tomography Survey Establishes New Drill Targets over 1+ km Extension Along the Tatiggaq Fault Zone, Aberdeen Uranium Project, Nunavut

Forum Energy: Ambient Noise Tomography Survey Establishes New Drill Targets over 1+ km Extension Along the Tatiggaq Fault Zone, Aberdeen Uranium Project, Nunavut

Forum Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: FMC) (OTCQB: FDCFF) ("Forum" or the "Company") has reviewed initial data processed from its Ambient Noise Tomography (ANT) survey conducted over the Tatiggaq anomaly during the summer of 2023, The survey successfully established new drill targets over a one plus kilometer east-northeast extension along the Tatiggaq fault zone, which hosts the high-grade Tatiggaq uranium discovery at Forum's 100% owned Aberdeen Project in the Thelon Basin, Nunavut. The Aberdeen project comprises 95,500 hectares and is located adjacent to Orano's 133 million pound Kiggavik uranium project* (Figure 1).

Dr. Rebecca Hunter, Forum's VP, Exploration commented, "The ANT survey may be a game-changing geophysical method for targeting unconformity systems in the northeast Thelon Basin. By measuring the velocity change interfaces throughout our anomalies, we can potentially image the faults that host the mineralization and the location of the mineralized bodies themselves. The survey results obtained suggest we will be able to target our drilling with a much higher degree of precision than what could be done in the past. I am very excited to resume on our Aberdeen Project in 2024."

Copper Prices Hit 22 Month High as Supply Concerns Mount

Copper prices hit a nearly two year high this week, and according to analystsat investment bank Citigroup (NYSE:C) that's a sign the red metal has entered its second secular bull market of the century.

Over the past two months, copper has surged by more than 15.75 percent, fueled by disruptions at mining operations that have threatened refined copper production in China, a major global supplier.

“The recent disruptions to major mines are starting to ripple through the industry,” said strategist Daniel Hynes of Melbourne's ANZ Bank. “A group of 13 major copper smelters in China is preparing for a possible 10 percent production cut due to a collapse in treatment and refining charges.”

Top 5 ASX Copper Stocks of 2024

Copper has hit record highs in recent years, and after setbacks at the start of 2024 its fortune has begun to turn.

Prices rebounded to 14 month highs at the beginning of Q2 on improved global manufacturing data, encouraging economic indicators in China and supply disruptions at key mines. In the longer term, many market watchers see tight supply and higher consumption from sectors like the electric vehicle industry creating a robust outlook for copper.

The list below outlines the top gainers, and was generated on April 9, 2024, using TradingView’s stock screener; all copper stocks listed had market caps above AU$50 million at that time.
