What recent news would you like to highlight to investors attending?

Closed a C$10.375m convertible debenture March 31st, drill results March 2nd, drill results January 25th

What are your key goals in 3 months, 6 months, 12 months?

3 Months:

We would like to secure the remaining funding for the restart of Punitaqui (US$20M) and raise awareness of our company.

6 Months:
We hope to have restarted our flotation plant at Punitaqui by this time and begin underground development and mining of ore.


12 Months:
Reach commercial production and Punitaqui and generate positive cash flow.

What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

We are relying on our independent consultants to quickly compile our drill and metallurgical data to produce our resource estimate and PEA.

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

If we can meet our timelines and goals over the next 6 to 12 months, we are currently trading at an EV / EBITDA multiple of approximately 1x. In addition, we are optimistic that the copper price will continue to raise to an all-time high which directly affects are margins in a positive way.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

We are going to be producing cash flow next year, we are underknown and should see a significant re-rating in the market in next 6-12 months and we are looking at many additional producing or near producing copper assets in Chile
