Vizsla Copper Begins Drilling at Woodjam Copper-Gold Property

Vizsla Copper Corp. (TSXV: VCU) (OTCQB: VCUFF) (FRANKFURT: 97E0) ("Vizsla Copper" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the start of the summer core drilling program at the Woodjam copper-gold project (the "Woodjam Project" or "Woodjam") in south-central BC (Figure 1).

HIGHLIGHTS
  • The Targets: Core drilling will evaluate the potential for: (1) extensions of high-grade gold mineralization at the Deerhorn deposit, (2) extensions of gold-rich copper mineralization at the Three Firs zone, and (3) extensions of higher gold mineralization at the Southeast deposit.
  • The Program: Approximately 3,600m of core drilling in 9 drill holes is planned, some of which will be on the contiguous Redgold property.

"With our financing freshly closed, I'm excited about the start of drilling at Woodjam," commented Craig Parry, Executive Chairman. "Strong copper prices are expected to continue over the long term and Vizsla Copper is executing on its strategy of acquiring undervalued copper assets and completing selective, high-impact exploration programs on our best targets."

"Well mineralized and highly prospective for exploration success, Woodjam remains our highest priority project," commented Steve Blower, Vice President of Exploration. "I'm looking forward to evaluating all of the target areas, especially Three Firs, as this is our first opportunity to expand the wide-open mineralization there."

The Program

High priority targets will be evaluated in 3 areas – the Deerhorn deposit, the Three Firs zone and the Southeast deposit (Figure 2). At the Deerhorn copper-gold deposit, at least two drill holes will evaluate the potential to expand the higher-grade southern gold-rich portion of the deposit (Figure 3). At the copper-gold Three Firs zone, one drill hole will evaluate potential extensions to the southwest of the zone and another will evaluate a large circular magnetic anomaly northwest of the zone (Figure 4). Finally, drilling at the large Southeast copper deposit will attempt to expand the area of higher-grade gold mineralization along the south end of the deposit (Figure 5).

Approximately 3,600m of drilling is planned in 9 drill holes – some of which will be completed on the contiguous Redgold property. More information on the Redgold portion of the drilling program will follow as targets are finalized. The program will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to complete. Samples will be submitted for assay regularly through the program, and analytical results will be disclosed in due course.

VIZSLA COPPER PROVIDES CORPORATE UPDATE AND POPLAR COPPER-GOLD PROJECT STRATEGY UPDATE

VIZSLA COPPER PROVIDES CORPORATE UPDATE AND POPLAR COPPER-GOLD PROJECT STRATEGY UPDATE

 Vizsla Copper Corp. (TSXV: VCU) (OTCQB: VCUFF) (" Vizsla Copper " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the appointment of Craig Parry Executive Chairman, to the role of Chief Executive Officer (" CEO "), and further information on the newly acquired Poplar Project ( "Poplar" or the "Project" ).  The Poplar Project is home to the Poplar Deposit (the "Deposit" ), a large porphyry-related copper-gold-molybdenum deposit that is one of the most advanced pre-production copper projects in British Columbia .

HIGHLIGHTS:
  • CEO. Craig Parry , Executive Chairman, has assumed the role of CEO.
  • Large, Gold-Rich Resource Base. The Project hosts a current undiluted indicated mineral resource of 152.3 million tonnes grading 0.32% copper, 0.009% molybdenum, 0.09 g/t gold and 2.58 g/t silver and an undiluted inferred mineral resource of 139.3 million tonnes grading 0.29% copper, 0.005% molybdenum, 0.07 g/t gold and 4.95 g/t silver.
  • Development Potential. The Poplar Deposit is a large, near-surface copper deposit that extends to the top of the bedrock and is covered only by a thin veneer (5- 10m thick) of overburden. It possesses a higher-grade core that also extends to the top of the bedrock and may be beneficial to phased mining scenarios.
  • Exploration Potential. Very little exploration drilling or ground geophysical surveying has been completed outside of the immediate Poplar deposit area, suggesting terrific potential for the discovery of additional porphyry-related mineralization.

" With the completion of the Universal Copper transaction, I look forward to taking a more active role in the Company's day-to-day operations " stated Craig Parry , Executive Chairman of the Company.  " Since Vizsla Copper's inception, we've succeeded in adding multiple exciting development and exploration assets, and we're just getting started.  Vizsla Copper is in a terrific position with the price of copper approaching $5 per pound and strong tailwinds continuing to dominate the sector."

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.

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.
