About Marimaca Copper and the Marimaca Project
Marimaca Copper is a Canadian-based copper company. Its vision is to explore and develop new sources of copper to supply an increasing global demand for this essential commodity. The Company’s flagship asset is the Marimaca project in Chile’s Antofagasta Region.
Marimaca is fast becoming recognised as one of the most significant copper discoveries in Chile in recent years. It represents a new type of deposit which challenges accepted exploration wisdom and may open up new frontiers for discoveries elsewhere in the country. Marimaca is hosted by intrusive rocks while the numerous manto deposits in the same region are hosted by volcanics.
With a lack of new copper exploration discoveries in Chile, the Marimaca resource is a high-profile development project, due to its location in the coastal belt at low elevation, close to Antofagasta and Mejillones. This prime location could enable its future development at a relatively modest capital investment. Marimaca would benefit from nearby existing infrastructure including roads, powerlines, ports, a sulphuric acid plant, a skilled workforce and water.
