World Copper Ltd., headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a Canadian resource company focused on the exploration and development of its advanced copper porphyry projects (PEA stage): Escalones in Chile and Zonia in Arizona. These projects have estimated resources with significant soluble (potentially heap leachable) copper mineralization. In addition, each project has peripheral copper porphyry exploration targets with attractive potential to expand established resources. World Copper is a small, dynamic resource company focused on advancing mining and exploration projects and controls significant copper oxide resources in proven mining jurisdictions.

The World Copper team has a unique skill set in navigating the mining sector in Chile, with some members having worked in the country for over 40 years and with discovery success.

About Escalones

The Escalones porphyry skarn copper-gold project has estimated inferred resources of 426 million tonnes of 0.367% total copper in the oxide zone, based on nearly 25,000 m of drill core from 53 holes . The 3.45 billion pounds of copper should be suitable for heap leaching with an average recovery of 71%. The Company is focused on exploring the Mancha Amarilla target immediately south of the existing resource. In addition, three major hydrothermal alteration zones, each measuring between 2,000 m and 3,000 m in diameter, lie 8-10 km north of the main discovery.

Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability as there is no certainty that all or part of the Resources will be converted into Reserves. Inferred resources are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated based on limited geological evidence and sampling. It is reasonable to expect that inferred resources can be upgraded to indicated resources with continued exploration.

About Zonia

The Zonia Project is located in Yavapai County, Arizona and consists of 261 mining claims and additional surface rights, totaling 4,279.55 acres. It is a near-surface copper oxide resource and brownfield that was previously mined in the late 1960s and 1970s. The project is at PEA level and has been significantly scaled down with over 50,000 meters of drilling completed to date and with substantial amounts of detailed engineering completed.
