Culpeo Minerals’ Managing Director, Max Tuesley, commented:

“With our recent capital raise complete, we are well funded to explore the compelling targets at the Lana Corina and Fortuna Projects in Chile.

“Limited historical exploration work at the El Quillay Prospect returned significant copper results, which together with the copper mineralisation defined at the Vaca Muerta and La Florida Prospects and other regional copper occurrences, highlight the potential for a significant mineralised system. The consolidation of our landholding in the coastal metallogenic belt of Chile presents a high-quality regional copper exploration opportunity, which has not benefited from the focus of modern-day exploration techniques that it deserves”.

“We look forward to reporting on the results of this exciting next phase of exploration as we explore both Fortuna and Lana Corina, focused on unlocking their full potential.”
