American Copper Development Corp. (CSE:ACDX) is an exploration and development mining company poised to become a key player in U.S. domestic copper production, with a significant land package in a tier 1 jurisdiction. The company is led by a strong management team with decades of mining experience and exploration success, including Andy Bowring, founder of American Lithium (TSXV:LI) and former CEO of Prime Mining (TSXV:PRYM), and Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse, who has led notable companies in the mining industry, including Nova Gold (NYSE:NG), Contango Ore (NYSE:CTGO) and Trilogy Metals (NYSE:TMQ)

Copper is the non-critical metal that makes all other metals critical. It is important in leading the charge toward global electrification and net-zero agendas. Copper demand is expected to greatly exceed supply in the coming years, and as a result, copper prices are expected to increase steadily..

Domestic US copper production only satisfies 65 percent of its in-country demand, making it crucial to develop a new domestic source of copper within the US.

American Copper’s flagship Lordsburg Project has the potential to become a significant source of domestic copper to supply US demand.

American Copper Project Location

The Lordsburg project is located in copper porphyry country in the American Southwest, where 80 percent of copper in the US comes from. It has the potential to become a world-class asset, with historical production of 150.3 million lbs of copper between 1904 to the 1970s. Yet, it has not been actively explored using modern technology and exploration techniques. Now, American Copper has the opportunity to capitalize on the asset’s porphyry targets associated with past high-grade copper production.

The company also owns the Chuchi South project in British Columbia, a project with significant potential for future exploration.

American Copper has the technical expertise to explore its past-producing copper porphyry district, thanks in part to the leadership of geologist Van Nieuwenhuyse, who is credited for Nova Gold’s 30 to 40-million-ounce gold resource in Alaska.

American Copper’s management team and company insiders hold one-third of the company’s shares. This level of ownership strongly indicates the team’s confidence in its ability to advance its promising assets. In addition the company is led by an experienced management team with experience in corporate administration, international finance and mining project development, including Van Nieuwenhuyse and Bowring.

Key Projects

The Lordsburg Copper Project

Lordsburg Copper Project

The past-producing Lordsburg copper asset covers approximately 18,700 acres in New Mexico, including 100 patented claims, in a world-class high grade copper porphyry district. The asset has year-round road access from U.S. Interstate 10. Additionally, the asset can access existing power and water, minimizing future development costs. American Copper is presently preparing for Phase 1 exploration, which will move toward Phase 2 exploratory drilling by January 2023.

Project Highlights:

  • Phase 1 Exploration Targets Identified: The initial exploration phase will leverage multiple leading-edge technologies and techniques to identify drilling opportunities for Phase 2. The current exploration phase includes the following:
    • 3D IP, Magnetotellurics, MAG and LIDAR surveys
    • Surface geologic mapping & soil geochemistry programs
    • Porphyry drill target evaluation
    • Assessing high-level vein and stockwork (leach) copper and or gold potential
  • Close Proximity to High-Grade Copper Mines: The asset is located nearby existing prolific high-grade mines, such as assets operated by BHP, Taseko and Rio Tinto. These projects indicate the large potential for the Lordsburg project as exploration continues.
  • Promising Historical Intercepts: The asset contains 117 surface drill holes, which identified several significant intercepts, including:
    • 3 m of 15 percent copper, 1 g/t gold and 8 g/t silver
    • 3 m of 2.24 percent copper, 3.5 g/t gold and 31 g/t silver
    • 2 m of 9 percent copper, 1 g/t gold and 93 g/t silver
