QC Copper is focused on acquiring and developing copper projects in the Chibougamau region that share synergies with its past-producing Opemiska Copper Mine Complex. Through acquisitions, QC Copper has been able to expand its Opemiska property to over 13,000 hectares in the heart of Quebec–with significant infrastructure, including direct rail and road access, already in place.
On September 20th, 2021, QC Copper released its Maiden Resource Estimate consisting of 81.7M tonnes @ 0.88% CuEq of pit constrained Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources and 21.3M tonnes @ 0.73% CuEq of Inferred Mineral Resources With copper prices increasing significantly since February/March 2020, QC Copper remains undervalued and remains an excellent opportunity to get exposure to copper.
Few, if any company offers a copper-gold deposit with the combination of substantial size, robust grades, and excellent on-site infrastructure all located in the Province of Quebec.
The Opemiska Copper Complex is home to two past producing high-grade underground copper-gold mines.
Today, QC Copper & Gold is re-envisioning the past-producing Opemiska Copper Mine Complex as an open-pit. The property's current Mineral Resource is pit-constrained and contains more than 532,000 tonnes or 1.17 billion lbs of copper and 816,000 ounces of gold in the Measured & Indicated (M&I) classification and an additional 109,000 tonnes or 240.3 million lbs of copper and 209,000 ounces of gold in the Inferred classification. The Company has outlined multiple targets for expansion and discovery drilling this coming winter that should expand the resource and bring more copper and gold into the M&I classification.
