This week, an air of envy tinged my excitement as our Vice President of Exploration, Tim Kingsley, Director Keenan Jennings, and Senior Vice President of Corporate Development, Christian Rios, had the privilege of visiting our Sombrero project. Their feedback has been inspiring, as we are continuing to shape our strategic approach to funding and determining our favorite targets to drill first which has been the recent challenge amongst our team due to the robust nature of the model. Though I could not join them, their insights and enthusiasm serve as a testament to the groundbreaking potential that lies beneath the surface.

“Sombrero represents a rare advanced opportunity seen by few in a career to extend a world class mining belt with potential for multiple major copper discoveries that is timing perfectly with the anticipated copper supply shortages. Our team and our culture have developed very well through the past eight years which enabled us to identify the opportunity and get to know and support the local communities associated with the because their success is truly our success.“

The essence of excitement in the mineral exploration sector is derived from the anticipation and the unknown. As we stand on the brink of major exploration activities at Coppernico Metals, the sense of exhilaration is palpable. Our focus is not merely on the immediate rewards; we are driven by the vision of identifying and developing deposits with the scalable potential to rank among the top 10 discoveries globally. This audacious goal is not without its risks, but our philosophy is simple: the magnitude of the target justifies the leap of faith. It is a pursuit that demands not only scientific acumen but also a bold spirit of adventure.

For the past eight years, we have dedicated ourselves to the Sombrero project, guided by Coppernico Metals’ strategic and thorough exploration methods, supported by our deep knowledge of the geological potential of our ventures. Specifically, the Sombrero project is a key focus within our exploration efforts. Its considerable copper potential positions Sombrero as a crucial asset in our mission to set new benchmarks in mineral exploration and development.

As the first junior mining company to introduce Agricultural programs across all of South America, we achieved this milestone through the Agroideas program. Here, we facilitate government grants and secure financial contributions from local communities, amounting to approximately $500,000 to date, with an additional $4.0 million in applications currently under review.

The journey of Coppernico Metals is not just about the pursuit of mineral wealth; it’s about pioneering a sustainable future for the industry. Our approach is rooted in responsible exploration practices, ensuring that we not only uncover valuable resources but also contribute positively to the communities and environments in which we operate.

As we advance our exploration efforts at Coppernico Metals, our resolve is stronger than ever. We are not just chasing deposits; we are on a quest to unlock value for our stakeholders, contribute to the communities we operate in, and pave the way for sustainable and responsible mining practices. The path ahead is challenging, yet the potential rewards are immense. It is this blend of risk and reward that defines the essence of exploration and fuels our passion for the industry.

In conclusion, Coppernico Metals stands at the forefront of a new era in mineral exploration. With a dedicated team, a strategic approach to exploration, and a commitment to sustainability, we are poised to redefine what is possible in the mining industry. Our journey is not just about discovering valuable deposits; it’s about creating a legacy of innovation, sustainability, and global significance through our achievements of bringing sustainable Agriculture into the Andes. The road ahead is filled with opportunities and challenges, but together, we are ready to embark on this exciting journey towards a future where Coppernico Metals becomes synonymous with excellence in the mining sector.
