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

NorthWest Copper is advancing BC’s top Copper-Gold project portfolio, ranging from new discovery to advanced development. Our flagship Kwanika-Stardust Project features two deposite; Kwanika – which is one of the largest undeveloped copper-gold projects in BC and Stardust – the highest grade undeveloped copper-gold deposit in BC. Stardust is 5x the grade of existing BC Copper deposits currently in production. We are looking for new investors, market support and interested parties for financing going forward.

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

We have completed a +$20M drill plan in 2022, we drilled over 55 holes and have received results over 45 holes. Highlights would include:

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

3 Months:
Report the remainder of the results from the 2022 drilling campaign

6 Months:
Compete metallurgical test work at Lorraine to confirm that material from Lorraine could be processed as part of the Kwanika-Stardust project.

12 Months:
Compete an updated PEA for Kwanika-Stardust-Lorraine

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

Copper price is a key issue. As copper strengthens, the case for these projects, which are very high-grade in comparison to peers become very attractive as a production scenario.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

Stardust/Kwanika –Flagship, high-grade, scalable project with exploration optionality
East Niv –The newest porphyry discovery in BC, large prospective land position
Lorraine –Highly mineralized property with historic resource adjacent to Kwanika-Stardust. NorthWest added an updated Mineral Resource in 2022
NorthWest represents the top Copper-Gold project pipeline in BC, Canada – A tier one jurisdiction.
