Technical Progress on Cuprum's Thierry Copper Project

Cuprum has commissioned assays for the remaining five drill holes from the Summer 2023 drill program, with results expected shortly. The 2023 drill program was a seven-hole, 2,600-metre program, with assays from only two holes completed and released. The results for these two holes were as follows:

  • CCM-23-51 intersecting 104.8 metres of 0.56% Copper Equivalent ("CuEq") mineralization (including 23.2 metres of 0.90 % CuEq mineralization) within continuous sulphide mineralization which started at surface and extended 247 metres down the hole, grading 0.45% CuEq.
  • CCM-23-52 intersecting 103 metres of 0.57% Copper Equivalent ("CuEq") mineralization (including 31.2 metres of 0.71 % CuEq mineralization and 22.8 metres of 0.70 % CuEq mineralization) within continuous sulphide mineralization, which started at surface and continued for 240 metres down the hole, grading at 0.44% CuEq.

* Copper Equivalent (CuEq) shown in Tables for drill intersections are calculated on the basis of US$ 3.75/lb for Cu, US$ 9.25/lb for Ni, US$ 1,190/oz for Pd, US$ 910/oz for Pt, and US$ 25/oz for Ag with 80% metallurgical recoveries assumed for all metals (Since it's unclear what metals will be the principal products, assuming different recoveries is premature at this stage). The formula is: CuEq. = Cu % + (Ni grade in % x (Ni recovery / Cu recovery) x [Ni price x 2200]) / [Cu price x 2200] + (Pd grade in g/t x (Pd recovery / Cu recovery) x [Pd price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200]) + (Pt grade in g/t x (Pt recovery / Cu recovery) x [Pt price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200] + (Ag grade in g/t x (Ag recovery / Cu recovery) x [Ag price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200]) The assays have not been capped.

Assay for results for Thierry's CCM-23-53, -54, -55, 56 and -57 have been commissioned by Cuprum.

Historical Data Compilation and Valuation

Cuprum has been meticulously validating Thierry's vast amount of historical data. This process has involved organizing and digitizing data from disparate sources, culminating in a comprehensive geological model. Cuprum has partnered with Orix Geoscience to scan and digitize thousands of historical drill logs, assay, mine-level plans and sections and will integrate this data into geological models that guide future drill programs and resource delineation.

NI 43-101 on Thierry

Cuprum has completed an updated NI 43-101 technical report on Thierry.

Orecap reminds investors that the Thierry property hosts a NI 43-101 compliant resource from 2021 across two zones-the Thierry (K2-1) underground deposit and K1-1 open pit deposit, along with historical resources and the J & G zones (see disclosure on historical resources). Thierry was also the subject of an updated PEA in April 2022, outlining a 14-year mine life, producing at a rate of 4,000 tpd, recovering 567 Mlbs Cu and 21 Mlbs Ni. The PEA showed an after-tax NPV6% of $287M, an IRR of 25%, and a payback of 3.1 years. The PEA did not include the K1-1 open pit deposit. Cuprum intends to further delineate additional open pit resources and evaluate a more considerable bulk tonnage scenario for the Project (see disclosure on PEA in Historical Resources and PEA).

Thierry (K2-1) underground deposit:

Classification Tonnes Cu (%) Ni (%) Au (g/t) Pt (g/t) Pd (g/t) Ag (g/t)
Measured 3,233,000 1.65 0.19 0.03 0.03 0.09 4.6

Cuprum Funding

In May 2024, Cuprum completed a ~$1.2M financing from arms-length investors. The financing included hard dollar and flow-through components at 12 and 15 cents, respectively. Orecap invested in Cuprum at a 5-cent valuation in October 2023.

Cuprum has also applied for the Ontario Junior Exploration Program grant under the critical minerals stream, which will match its exploration costs by up to $200,000 to cover 50% of eligible costs.

Information Regarding Historical Resources and PEA

Orecap views this historical data as a conceptual indication of the potential size and grade of the gold deposits in the area, and this data is relevant to ongoing exploration efforts. In view of when the resources were estimated and the differences in metal price and operating costs prevailing at the time compared to today, Orecap does not treat any of the historical resources as Current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Note that the PEA referred to above is historical in nature and Orecap has not conducted any economics analysis of the Project and is using the conclusions of the PEA only as an indication of the potential economic performance of the Project.
