What is your rationale for taking part in 121 Mining Investment?

Faraday Copper is advancing one of the largest undeveloped copper assets in North America with significant exploration upside. We trade at a significant discount to our peers when considered relative to the mineral endowment. The Copper Creek project is located in a tier-one mining jurisdiction. We have a clear strategy to advance and de-risk the project and have an experienced team and board to execute on this strategy.

Additionally, copper is forecasted to be in a supply deficit due to limited new projects coming into production and the expected role copper plays in the clean energy transition. We see the U.S. and other western countries now acknowledging the strategic need to support the development of these metal resources domestically. This positions the Copper Creek project well to be a future U.S. supplier of copper.

12 Months:
Our strategy is to de-risk, grow, and technically advance the Copper Creek project up the value curve, positioning it to be a supplier of U.S. copper resources.

What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

Relative to other projects in North and South America, Copper Creek presents a compelling project based on its size, mine life and capital intensity. The project provides a low-risk capital scenario with significant optionality and a long mine life to support the clean energy transition.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

With the current scarcity of development-ready copper projects, the Copper Creek project provides a large undeveloped Mineral Resource with significant exploration upside, supported by a team well-equipped to unlock its value.
