Culpeo Minerals’ Managing Director, Max Tuesley, commented:

“With our recent capital raise complete, we are well funded to explore the compelling targets at the Lana Corina and Fortuna Projects in Chile.

“Limited historical exploration work at the El Quillay Prospect returned significant copper results, which together with the copper mineralisation defined at the Vaca Muerta and La Florida Prospects and other regional copper occurrences, highlight the potential for a significant mineralised system. The consolidation of our landholding in the coastal metallogenic belt of Chile presents a high-quality regional copper exploration opportunity, which has not benefited from the focus of modern-day exploration techniques that it deserves”.

“We look forward to reporting on the results of this exciting next phase of exploration as we explore both Fortuna and Lana Corina, focused on unlocking their full potential.”

What Factors Affect Copper Supply and Demand? (Updated 2024)

From wiring and plumbing to electric vehicles (EVs) and electronics, base metal copper is key for a range of important applications in various industries. In fact, it's even earned the moniker "Dr. Copper."

That's because copper's widespread uses make it a valuable indicator for global economic health. Knowing what drives copper prices today is therefore helpful for investors who are focused on the bigger picture for copper.

Even though the red metal took a COVID-19-induced dive in the early spring of 2020, both 2021 and 2022 turned out to be record-setting years for the copper price. That trend has continued this year — in May, copper hit yet another a fresh all-time high, reaching US$5.20 per pound on the Comex, which equates to US$11,464 per metric ton (MT).
