Orecap's Cuprum Intersects 114 metres of 1.1% Copper Equivalent within 171 metres of 0.98% Copper Equivalent

20.06.2024 | 12:00 Uhr | Newsfile

Highlights of the five drill holes that expand the K1 Open Pit Zone:

  • 114 metres of 1.1% CuEq, within 171 metres of 0.98% CuEq
  • 231 metres of 0.74% CuEq, including 126 metres of 0.83% CuEq
  • 79 metres of 0.81% CuEq and 23.5 metres of 0.60% CuEq
  • 25 metres of 0.74% CuEq and 31 metres of 0.55% CuEq and 28 metres of 0.5% CuEq and 56 metres of 0.56% CuEq, and 34 metres of 0.57% CuEq, in a single hole starting near surface
  • 24 metres grading 0.69% CuEq
  • Curprum owns 100% of the Thierry Copper Project, which is Ontario's largest copper resource

Toronto, June 20, 2024 - Orecap Invest Corp. (Orecap) (TSXV: OCI) (OTCQB: ORFDF) is pleased to update on the remaining five holes from Cuprum Corp's (Cuprum) 2,600 metre drill program on its flagship Thierry copper project (Thierry). Notably, holes CCM-23-55 and CCM-23-54 were step-out holes north of the current surface expression of the K1 deposit.

Orecap owns 29.5 million shares of Cuprum Corp., and is its largest shareholder. QC Copper, another Orecap portfolio company, owns 6 million shares of Cuprum Corp. Curprum owns 100% of the Thierry Copper Project.


"With high-grade mineralization across long intervals in all of the drill holes from the 2023 drill program to date, there is significant scope to expand K1's resource and develop a much larger, bulk tonnage scenario complementing the high-grade underground Thierry deposit (K2). Based on the 2023 drill program results we see a consistently mineralized trend ranging from 20m to 200m of lower-grade, bulk tonnage material. Additionally, given the proximity and continuity of geophysical anomalies between the K1 and K2 zones, there is potential to connect K1 and K2 deposits," said Orecap Chairman Stephen Stewart.

CCM-23-55, CCM-23-54 - Step Out Holes
The step-out holes were designed to test the expansion potential of the K1's bulk tonnage near surface deposit located 3km east of Curpum's past-producing high-grade underground Thierry mine.

CCM-23-55 and CCM-23-54 were collared 300 metres and 200 metres north of the known surface expression of the K1 deposit, respectively. The high-grade and long intercept in CCM-23-55 and CCM-23-54 confirm the presence of a larger mineralized trend outside of the current known K1 deposit. Importantly, mineralization in hole CCM-23-55 is expected to continue beyond the current drilling depth. Cuprum expects this mineralized trend to extend east-west and at greater depths. Based on the success of these holes, along with the high-grade and long intercepts in previously released holes CCM-23-51 and CCM-23-52, Cuprum believes there is significant potential for lateral expansion (with K1 oriented east-west) and at depth.

Cuprum notes that the K1 deposit has a current Inferred Mineral Resource (pit constrained) of 53,614,000 tonnes grading 0.38% Cu, 0.10% Ni, 1.8 g/t Ag, 0.03 g/t Au, 0.05 g/t Pt and 0.14 g/t Pd.

CCM-23-57 is 20 meters deeper than the nearest historical hole, revealing a longer-than-expected mineralized intercept and suggesting a potential extension at depth. Notably, CCM-23-57 has yielded the best intersection to date from the 2023 drill program at K1.

CCM-23-53, CCM-23-56 - Infill Drill Holes
CM-23-53 and CCM-23-56 are infill drill holes. Infill drilling provides additional data and enhances confidence in the resource model, particularly in areas with limited historical data or previous drilling has indicated promising mineralization. As expected, these holes have increased Cuprum's geological confidence in the deposit's continuity.

* Copper Equivalent (CuEq) shown in Tables for drill intersections are calculated on the basis of US$ 3.75/lb for Cu, US$ 9.25/lb for Ni, US$ 1,190/oz for Pd, US$ 910/oz for Pt, and US$ 25/oz for Ag with 80% metallurgical recoveries assumed for all metals (Since it's unclear what metals will be the principal products, assuming different recoveries is premature at this stage). The formula is: CuEq. = Cu % + (Ni grade in % x (Ni recovery / Cu recovery) x [Ni price x 2200] / [Cu price x 2200] + (Pd grade in g/t x (Pd recovery / Cu recovery) x [Pd price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200]) + (Pt grade in g/t x (Pt recovery / Cu recovery) x [Pt price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200] + (Ag grade in g/t x (Ag recovery / Cu recovery) x [Ag price ÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200]) The assays have not been capped.


Nickel Upside and Metallurgy
While Cuprum is Ontario's largest open pitable primary copper resource, secondary metals include nickel and platinum group elements. Cuprum notes that nickel recoveries from historical production will require improvement, further study, and updated metallurgy to determine any economic significance.

Thierry NI 43-101 and Historic Resources
Orecap reminds investors that the Thierry property hosts a NI 43-101 compliant resource (from 2021) across two zones-the Thierry (K2) underground deposit and K1 open pit deposit, along with historical resources and the J & G zones (see disclosure on historical resources). Thierry was also the subject of an updated PEA in April 2022, outling a 14-year mine life, producing at a rate of 4,000 tpd, recovering 567 Mlbs Cu and 21 Mlbs Ni. The PEA showed an after-tax NPV6% of $287M, an IRR of 25% and a payback of 3.1 years. The PEA did not include the K1 open pit deposit, and Cuprum intends on further delineating open pit resources and evaluate a larger, bulk tonnage scenario for the Project (see disclosure on PEA in Historical Resources and PEA).

Information Regarding Historical Resources and PEA
Cuprum or Orecap view this historical data as a conceptual indication of the potential size and grade of the deposits in the area, and this data is relevant to ongoing exploration efforts. Given when the resources were estimated and the differences in metal price and operating costs prevailing at the time compared to today, Orecap does not treat any historical resources as Current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Note that the PEA referred to above is historical, and Orecap has not conducted any economic analysis of the project. It is using the PEA's conclusions only as an indication of the potential economic performance of the project.
