About Highland Valley

The 100-percent-owned Highland Valley project, comprising the West Valley and Rateria copper properties, covers 240 square kilometres and is a quality, underexplored exploration asset in the world-class Highland Valley district. The Company’s property package adjoins the Highland Valley Copper (HVC) mine on its southern side3. The mine, Canada’s largest copper producer, has been in production for nearly 60 years. Happy Creek’s Zone 1 and Zone 2 discoveries, which lie just 6.5 kilometres southeast of HVC’s Highmont open pits3, show laterally continuous mineralization that has been outlined with 28,000 metres of drilling and remains open in several directions. The Company also continues to generate new copper targets within this large and prospective property.
