 Conquest Resources Limited (TSXV: CQR) ("Conquest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of the acquisition of the DGC Property from Teck Resources Limited. ("Teck") (see Press Release dated 2021-03-16). The Company has issued 1.8 million shares to Teck and the subject leases have been transferred to Conquest. The DGC Property is subject to a 2% NSR in favour of Teck.

The acquisition consolidates Conquests extensive land package of over 260 square kilometers where the focus for the Company is to explore and develop copper and precious metal deposits.

Belfast - Teck Mag Exploration Update

A 10,000m drill program is scheduled to commence by the beginning of June. The drill program will test the first 15 high priority geophysical targets that have been identified from the recently completed VTEM-Max and follow-up gravity and AMT geophysical surveys. Prospecting and ground-truthing of the targets is on-going. Data compilation and follow-up prospecting completed in April on some of the IOCG targets identified numerous large quartz veins proximal to the gravity anomalies. Some of these structures have been prospected back in the 1950's and 1960's, where anomalous copper and gold values were reported, however, the operators may have not recognized the significance of these structures as related to IOCG mineralization.

Camp construction is underway and will be completed in the next two weeks. A 10-person camp is being prepared in advance of the drill program for contractors and field personnel.

Conquest Resources Limited, incorporated in 1945, is a mineral exploration company that is exploring for gold on mineral properties in Ontario.

Conquest holds a 100% interest in the Belfast - Teck Mag Project,located in the Temagami Mining Camp at Emerald Lake, approximately 65 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, Ontario, which hosts the former Golden Rose Gold Mine and is underlain by highly prospective Abitibi greenstone geology along a strike length of seventeen (17) kilometres.

In October 2020, Conquest completed the acquisition of Canadian Continental Exploration Corp. which holds an extensive package of mining claims which surround Conquest's Golden Rose Mine, and subsequently doubled its land holdings in the Temagami Mining Camp through the staking of 588 mining cells, encompassing approximately 93 sq km., centered on Belfast Township, on the edge of the Temagami Magnetic Anomaly.

Conquest now controls over 260 sq km of underexplored territory, including the past producing Golden Rose Mine at Emerald Lake, in the Temagami Mining Camp.

Conquest also holds a 100% interest in the Alexander Gold Property located immediately east of the Red Lake and Campbell mines in the heart of the Red Lake Gold Camp on the important "Mine Trend" regional structure. Conquest's property is almost entirely surrounded by Evolution Mining land holdings.

In addition, Conquest owns a 100% interest in the Smith Lake Gold Property of six patented claims and 181 staked mining claims to the north, west and south of the former Renabie Gold Mine in Rennie Township in northern Ontario, operated by Corona and Barrick that had reported gold production of over 1,000,000 ounces between 1947 and 1991 (Northern Miner March 4, 1991).

Seismic Disruptions Could Cost Copper and Rhenium Industries Billions, USGS Study Shows

Astudy published by the US Geological Survey shows that earthquakes can have a "substantial" impact on mining, smelting and refining operations, creating lasting impacts for the global economy and supply chains.

Focusing on copper and rhenium, a silver-gray transition metal, the study aims to quantify the risks that earthquakes pose to supply — a variable that has not previously been systematically categorized.

Top 5 Copper Stocks on the TSX in 2024

Copper prices saw some gains during the first quarter of the year, but supply concerns and rising demand caused the copper price to surge in Q2 to a record high on the COMEX of US$5.20 per pound, or US$11,464 per metric ton, on May 20.

Although strong demand from the energy transition has been expected to impact supply chains for some time, lower treatment charges from Chinese refiners during the first quarter introduced added pressure into the market. The low charges caused cuts to output, ultimately bottlenecking the supply of refined copper to end users.

How have TSX-listed copper companies performed since the start of 2024? Learn about the top 5 best performing copper stocks in 2024 below.

Top 5 Junior Copper Stocks on the TSXV in 2024

Many Canadian junior copper stocks are up significantly in 2024 thanks to a strong copper price.

The second quarter of 2024 saw carried-over momentum from March. Easing inflation and speculation of a manufacturing rebound fueled broad gains in commodity markets, helping to push COMEX copper prices to a record high of US$5.20 per pound, or US$11,464 per metric ton, on May 20.

Prices have found support over demand growth from energy sectors as wind and solar projects see greater uptake, particularly in China and India.

Chinese Copper Smelters to Trim Output in Response to Falling Margins

Two Chinese copper smelters have announced plans to reduce production next year due to diminishing profit margins caused by an ongoing shortage of ore concentrate, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday (July 16).

These decisions were revealed during a quarterly meeting of Chinese smelters held in Shanghai last week.

Daye Nonferrous Metals, a major smelter based in the country's Hubei province, plans to cut its smelting output by 20 percent in 2025. The company has already implemented smaller reductions, resulting in a decline in its total refined copper production capacity, which now stands at 930,000 metric tons on an annual basis.
