Porphyritic Copper - Overview

  • Large-Scale Copper Target – (ownership 100% FMN)

  • Porphyritic copper mineralization identified at two key mineralized zones approximately 4,000m apart.

  • Historical sampling at the project indicates peak mineralization grades of: 

    • between 0.36% - 0.66% Cu at the Upper Zone

    • and higher grades of >1% Cu at the Lower Zone

  • Potential that the two mineralised zones represent exposed sections of a typical Cu-Mo Porphyry system.

Porphyritic Copper Project 

The Porphyritic Copper Project comprises three contiguous concessions covering 1,200Ha, located in an active mining and development district in La Libertad, Northern Peru. The project hosts near surface manifestations of visible copper mineralisation (Figure 1), as well as small-scale artisanal workings developed for the purposes of producing small tonnages of gold bearing ore. A recent assessment of the “Upper” and “Lower” Zones has identified similarities in the type of mineralisation hosted at the two zones that are situated approximately 4,000m apart. Both the zones of interest are in each case located immediately adjacent to a major regional (+60km) fault structure that is regionally associated with known copper projects. Encouragingly, at both the project and the regional copper projects, the mineralization is associated with variably altered monzodiorite(s) displaying copper sulphide (including bornite) and copper oxide mineralization.


Historical sampling at the project indicates grades [1] of 0.36% - 0.66% Cu at the Upper Zone and higher grades at the Lower Zone including >1% Cu.


Selected sampling results are outlined below.

During due-diligence activities relating to the acquisition of the project, Fidelity Minerals identified additional prospective geological features that extend beyond the current project area. In order to secure a larger footprint surrounding the project, the Company is in the process of acquiring adjoining concessions. Until such time that the Company has secured the adjoining concessions, additional details including the name of the project or the specific location will not be released.

In 2018 the project vendor commissioned a QP based in Canada to prepare a geological report [2] in order to summarise the geological prospectivity of the project. The data relating to the project presented in this release has been largely taken from this geological report with the consent of the vendor.

Next Steps

The Company intends to perform an initial assessment of the prospectivity of the project by commencing with detailed geological mapping and a systematic surface sampling program to better define the extent of the surface manifestations of the interpreted zones of mineralisation.


Acquisition Conditions

The acquisition of the Porphyritic Copper Project remains subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions before closing, including exchange approval for the issuance of Consideration Shares.
