Michael Haworth, Executive Chairman commented:
“The Marimaca Copper Project is one of the most significant copper oxide discoveries in Chile in a decade, and today’s announcement symbolises the commencement of an exciting new chapter in the Company’s evolution.We have a clear focus on developing Marimaca, which we believe has all of the hallmarks of a low capital cost, high margin, copper development project. A Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Project is underway, which we expect will show the project has robust and compelling economics across a broad range of copper prices. In addition, we remain very excited about the ongoing exploration potential at Marimaca, especially in the near mine oxide potential and for extensions at depth in the sulphide zone. Any exploration success will only add to what is already a tremendous investment case. We are making significant progress on the various technical de-risking workstreams and we look forward to releasing the results of these programs to the market when they are complete.”

About Marimaca and the Marimaca Copper ProjectMarimaca is fast becoming recognised as one of the most significant copper oxide discoveries in Chile in recent years, as it is a new type of deposit which challenges accepted exploration wisdom. 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 discoveries in Chile, the growing Marimaca resource is a high-profile development project as it is situated 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 will benefit from nearby existing infrastructure including roads, powerlines, ports, a sulphuric acid plant, a skilled workforce and seawater for use in processing the oxide ore.
