Creating Value through Discovery and Delineation – Validated by Third Parties: Fortescue Metals, Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank

Welcome to

Candente Copper Corp.

New Interview with CEO Joanne Freeze

Candente Copper is a mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in Peru, a well established and prolific mining country (2nd largest copper producing country in the world).  We are currently focused on our 100% owned Cañariaco project, which includes the Feasibility stage Cañariaco Norte deposit as well as the Cañariaco Sur deposit and Quebrada Verde prospect. 

Candente Copper has third party validation from Fortescue Metals Group, Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank. 

  • Fortescue has acquired 19.9% of the company.
  • Goldman Sachs has identified Cañariaco as one of the top 84 copper projects worldwide and has found it to be in the lowest quartile for copper price to go into production. 
  • Deutsche Bank has identified Cañariaco as one of 3 projects they believe will be required to meet the upcoming copper supplydemand gap.

Cañariaco Norte Pre-Feasibility Study Highlights:

  • $1.06B NPV & IRR 17.5% (after tax, 8% discount rate, US$2.50/lb Cu) or
    $1.56B NPV & IRR 21.5% (at US$2.90/lb Cu)
  • 260M lbs Cu per year (39,000 oz Au per year & 911,000 oz Ag per year)
  • 22 Year Initial Mine Life @ 95,000 tonnes per day
  • 4.4 Year Payback Period
  • Preproduction CAPEX $1.56B
  • Operating costs of US$0.988/lb Cu
  • Minimal infrastructure required, excellent locations for all site facilities, close to existing highway and power grid and abundant water at site

Ausenco currently carrying out desk top studies to identify and define a smaller, higher grade start-up option for Cañariaco Norte.  This could result in a smaller initial CAPEX and an accelerated payback period.
