Additionally, 377 m at 0.31% Copper Equivalent

Los Andes Copper Ltd. (TSXV: LA) (OTCQX: LSANF) ("Los Andes", "LA" or the "Company") reports further excellent results from drilling completed at the Vizcachitas Copper Project in Chile.

Hole CMV-009 located near the southern edge of the current resources has returned results from 93.2 meters to 480.35 meters with a copper equivalent grade of 0.56 %, including 0.53 % copper, 62 parts per million ("ppm") molybdenum and 1.5 grammes per tonne ("g/t") silver. Included in this intercept is an interval from 108 meters to 260 meters, of 152 meters grading 1.00% copper equivalent. Further drilling is planned to outline this area in detail.

Hole CMV-010 located near the western edge of the previous resource model returned assay results from 430.0 meters to 807.3 meters, with 377.3 meters of 0.31 % copper equivalent. This result will be incorporated into the new resource assessment for the Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") targeted for the fourth quarter 2022.

R. Michael Jones, CEO of Los Andes, comments that "The shallow mineralization in Hole CMV-009 is impressive. The higher-grade areas of the deposit will be targeted for early mining where accessible in the developing PFS mine plan. Hole CMV-010 illustrates that the deposit is still open to the northwest and assays are pending for Hole CMV-011 that is further west. Hole CMV-010 and CMV-011 will allow the western area to be reconsidered in the resource model. The opportunity to convert tonnes assumed to be waste in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (the "PEA") to resources in the mine plan for the PFS, and to target high grade areas are good opportunities to optimize the project."

The drilling results indicate that the limits and the center of the Vizcachitas Porphyry Copper deposit are not yet known. A further 3,300 meters of sampled core are awaiting assay results at this time.

Milestones for the Company include further drilling assay results in the weeks ahead and completion of the PFS in the fourth quarter of 2022. Vizcachitas represents one of the truly Tier One Copper Assets with no major company holdings or offtake agreements.

* Copper Equivalent grade has been calculated using the following calculation: CuEq (%) = Cu (%) + 0.000333 x Mo (ppm) + 0.00826 x Ag (g/t), using the metal prices: 3.00 USD/lb Cu, 10.00 USD/lb Mo and 17.00 USD/oz Ag. No allowance for metallurgical recoveries has been considered. These are the same reference prices as in reporting of 2019 PEA. This means that the reported intercepts can be compared directly with the results published in the PEA. Approximate relative value on the PEA pricing is 93% Cu, 6% Mo and 1% silver.

** Assay results pending for silver.

All thicknesses from the drill hole intersections are down-hole drilled thicknesses. True widths will be estimated as the deposit model is updated and information becomes available. Hole CMV-002 was drilled in an open shallow exploration area north of the current resource model. The deep part of the deposit in the north remains open. Holes CMV-003 and CMV-005 indicate that the shallow part of the system does not extend northward from the current resource model. However deeper drilling in this area has good mineralization and the depth potential to the north is still untested.

The Company is preparing to file detailed reports with the environmental court on the issues raised in the recent court injunction to suspend drilling. The Company is confident that the drilling project can continue, in accordance with its permits, with no significant effects to the environment and the Company welcomes continued dialogue with all stakeholders in a climate of mutual respect.

Los Andes Copper

Overview

The copper market has seen an exciting uptick and revitalization in recent years. Besides being a staple metal for building and construction, analysts' forecast copper valuation may exceed historic highs of US$10,000 per tonne with the increased demand for the metal in electric vehicle wiring and solar panel manufacturing.

One of the most prominent players in this arena is Chile. As a country with many of the largest copper mines in the world and some of the most investor-friendly mining jurisdictions to date, Chile is already playing a significant part in producing the copper needed to power the new green world.

Los Andes Copper (TSXV:LA, OTCQX: LSANF) is a Canadian company focused on developing its flagship Vizcachitas copper-molybdenum project, which is one of the largest advanced copper deposits in Chile.

For years, Chile has hosted many international mining projects, with its stable taxation regime for foreign companies to work and a democratic government supportive of mining operations. Los Andes Copper is strategically positioned to leverage Chile's prominent past-producing geological positioning and take advantage of rising copper prices despite production disruptions from COVID-19 in 2020.

Los Andes' diverse investor portfolio demonstrates the vast and enthusiastic interest surrounding the company. Along with a large group of loyal and very active retail investors, the company is also seeing interest generated from the development of drilling programs conducted from 2015 to 2017. The campaign results showed significant grades hovering above 0.5 percent copper in near-surface supergene mineralization.

Additionally, a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) published in June 2019 measured copper on the Vizcachitas property at US$3.50 per pound with an IRR of 26.7 percent and at US$3.00 per pound with an IRR of 20.7 percent. Resource estimates measured 254.4 million tonnes grading 0.439 percent copper, 119 ppm molybdenum and 1.26 g/t silver, giving a 0.489 percent copper equivalent.

With the net present value of the Vizcachitas asset set at US$1.8 billion as of the PEA, Los Andes Copper is favorably positioned to leverage the robust economic and geological conditions of this large copper project for years to come.

The company expects to publish a pre-feasibility study (PFS) for its flagship project in late 2021. This study would include robust economics, updated resource estimates of prospective mining reserves and metallurgical testing results of copper and molybdenum mineralization. As part of the PFS, Los Andes is undertaking work programs that will contribute to the design of an environmentally friendly operation that will position Vizcachitas on the forefront of global environmental trends for mining.

With commitments to environmentally friendly best practices and community participation, Los Andes Copper's management team has primed the company for development and mining success. Its track record of accomplishments in mining, community affairs and project development means that company leadership has the expertise to push its Vizcachitas project to levels seen in neighboring porphyry deposits.

Los Andes Copper's Company Highlights

  • Los Andes Copper is a Canadian company focused on the development of its flagship Vizcachitas copper-molybdenum project. This deposit is forecasted to become Chile's next major copper mine.
  • The company owns 100 percent of the Vizcachitas copper deposit. This asset is one of the largest advanced copper deposits in South America.
  • Preliminary economic assessment conducted in June 2019 revealed robust project economics and competitive mineralization with measured copper on the Vizcachitas property at US$3.50 per pound with IRR of 26.7 percent and US$3.00 per pound copper with IRR of 20.7 percent.
  • In 2019, Fernando Porcile joined the Los Andes board of directors as executive chairman. Along with a diverse and world-class management team, this leadership primes the company for significant development advancement.
  • Los Andes Copper is currently working on a 2021 PFS in preparation for robust economics, drilling and expected production in 2025.
  • Significant exploration upside at Vizcachitas with the potential to increase the resource base beyond the initial 45 year mine life modelled in the PEA

Los Andes Copper's Key Projects

Vizcachitas Copper-Molybdenum Project

Los Andes Copper's flagship project is 100 percent owned and focuses on developing an advanced copper-molybdenum porphyry deposit in Central Chile. The company expects to publish its PFS in late 2021.

The project is located approximately 150 kilometers northeast of Santiago with accessible water resource networks and good infrastructure. It operates on the same geological belt that has historically hosted competitive and clean grade copper production. This includes the Rio Blanco-Los Bronces deposit, which has seen over 101 million tonnes of contained copper.

Additionally, the deposit has a measured and indicated resource of approximately 1.28 million tonnes at a copper grade of 0.40 percent and a copper equivalent grade of 0.45 percent. Total mineralization estimates also include 11.2 billion pounds of copper, 400 million pounds of molybdenum and 43.4 million ounces of silver.

Los Andes Copper is currently working on completing its 2021 PFS and Environmental Impact Statement (DIA) to acquire the permits that will allow for drilling and mining development. With a strong showing from the company's 2019 PEA, the Vizcachitas copper project demonstrates significant exploration potential and is expected to begin production in 2025.

Use of Funds

The LOI is a non-binding term sheet for both offtake arrangement and project funding and is part of the targeted AUD240 million to AUD260 million debt funding package to finance the restart of the Nifty Copper Project. The Company continues to advance discussions with senior debt providers who are undertaking due diligence activities and reviewing financing documentation.
