CopperCorp | Listed on: TSX:CPER.VN | TSX:CPER.VN | TSX:CPER.VN

CopperCorp is a progressive, commercially minded team, backed by proven mine-finders. They are taking a responsible approach to exploration on a ground-floor opportunity in one of the world’s prime and most sustainable copper regions: Australia’s state of Tasmania.

Why You Should Consider Investing

  • A safe jurisdiction

    CopperCorp's operations are focused on Tasmania, where risks such as nationalization and societal instability are low compared to the site of many other new copper discoveries.

  • An exciting prospect

    CopperCorp's analysis has led them to the Alpine Copper Project. Surveying indicates the potential for a significant iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit.

  • Strong demand

    Demand for copper is on the rise, with the metal widely needed for use in construction and manufacturing.

  • Be part of the EV revolution

    Electric vehicles are the future of travel and their manufacture requires far more copper than traditional vehicles.

  • Copper scarcity

    Major copper discoveries have declined over recent years. This damage to supply means the price of the metal is only going to increase over the coming years.

  • Run by true leaders

    The company's leadership team hold an impressive array of experience in the worlds of mining and finance. Their expertise will be invaluable in shaping the success of CopperCorp.

Why is Copper in High Demand?


What you might not know is that copper presents a huge opportunity right now.

There is a vast imbalance in the supply and demand of the metal, with prices having climbed sharply in the year to date.

But why is demand for the resource rising?

Historical uses for copper have primarily been seen in construction and building, electric grids, electronics, and underground infrastructure. Those sources of demand remain strong, but there is also a major new driver.

This new source of demand is the electric vehicle industry.

Typical new hybrid cars use an average of 132 pounds of copper, while new fully battery EV’s, like those made by Tesla or Nio, use 183 pounds. This is more than two and three times the average 51 pounds of copper for an internal combustion vehicle.

You only have to look at the numbers to see that EV production is headed through the roof. Around 2.1 million EVs were produced in 2019 and 2.8 million were manufactured in 2020. 2021 isn’t quite finished yet, but plug-in car sales are expected to exceed 6 million units.

Just this month, COP26 saw dozens of countries and car manufacturers pledging to transition to zero-emission vehicles by 2040. This all seems set to fuel further acceleration in the production of EVs and the need for copper.

While there’s a clear source of demand, this is not the only factor behind climbing prices. Copper discoveries are becoming rarer and rarer. What’s more, the discoveries which are being made are finding less significant deposits of the metal.

This all serves to continue driving copper prices higher. For those companies that can supply the commodity, this looks to be a boom period.

CopperCorp (TSX.V:CPER) is well-placed to take advantage of this situation.


CopperCorp’s Tasmanian Target


CopperCorp’s founders noted that Australia’s largest copper mines are all clustered in IOCG terrains.

The island of Tasmania has a 150-year history of successful copper mining. The island is quickly emerging as a major potential supply source for new copper discoveries and renewed copper mine production.

Sustainability is an additional incentive for operating on the island. Tasmania became entirely powered by renewable energy in November 2020, making it an attractive place to set up businesses wishing to have green credentials.

CopperCorp’s large package of mineral exploration is slap bang in the middle of Tasmania’s major mining belt.

The area of particular interest for the company has been dubbed the ‘Alpine Copper Project’.

Anomalies found in analysis conducted at the site show the potential for a massive iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit. There are more than 50 historical gold, copper, and iron prospects over 30 km of strike that remains largely untested.

This means there is still soil sampling, soil sampling, gridding, and gravity and IP geophysical surveys and metallurgical testing to be done.

CopperCorp has already announced a 4,000-meter drilling campaign of 15 to 20 holes to explore the potential of the Alpine Project extensively. Eight priority prospects have been identified, with CopperCorp hoping that the current indications of rich veins of copper and gold are realised.

The Alpine Project is a great prospect and could well provide the copper needed to help CopperCorp take advantage of the rising price of the metal.


What You Need to Know: Led by Experts

So CopperCorp is poised to take advantage of strong demand with an exciting new project. But what about the people behind this venture?

Another factor that really makes CopperCorp stand out is the weight of expertise behind the company. This is a copper mining company run by true specialists in the field.

The expertise behind CopperCorp puts it in a strong position to capitalize on the booming market. The company’s founders include geological explorer Doug Kirwin, who has managed exploration teams and been involved in the discovery of several significant mineral deposits spanning a 50 year career.

Co-founder Sam Garrett has over 30 years of mineral exploration, evaluation and development experience. Garrett has discovery credits for the Greatland Gold’s Havieron project, which is in development to become a large, underground mining operation.

While Kirwin and Garrett are great assets, the leadership team is host to yet more important expertise.

CopperCorp’s President, CEO and Director Stephen Swatton has over three decades’ experience in the mining and exploration industry, including BHP and Rio Tinto. He has evaluated over a thousand prospective mining and exploration projects. The leadership is rounded out by experienced financial advisors with in-depth knowledge of capital markets.

Vice president of exploration and native Tasmanian, Sean Westbrook, is another member of the team and ideally suited to his role. He possesses more than 20 years of experience in the industry, giving him the perfect skillset to lead local drilling and geology teams.

Director Craig Roberts, Advisors Leo Hathaway and John Robins bring decades more experience in the mining industry to the team.

Finally, Chairman Eoin Saadien and Director Aaron Keay bring the financial clout. Saadien, a cofounder of the company, has worked in capital markets for more than 20 years, while key investor Keay has raised over a billion dollars in the past ten years.

This management team is a superbly talented set of individuals, who provide the perfect foundation upon which to build CopperCorp.
