COPPER: THE RED METAL WITH THE GREEN FUTURE

The world has shifted, the transition to sustainable energy is no longer a discussion, but a global movement of commercial and industrial investment. Technology has bridged the gap from feasible, to proven, and the race to build the future is on. In parallel with this direction, C3 Metals is exploring for the raw materials required to sustain this industrial revolution; Copper, instrumental to electric motors, sustainable electric generation and transmission, is in dwindling supply and projected to be unable to meet global industry demands. Copper is truly the red metal with the green future. Recognizing that dwindling copper resources must be replaced, C3 Metals is focussed on the discovery of large copper projects in Peru, a proven mining jurisdiction and one of the world’s leading copper producers.

OVERVIEW

C3 Metals Inc. is an ambitious exploration company focused on creating shareholder wealth through the identification, acquisition, and exploration of large scale copper-gold exploration opportunities in mining friendly jurisdictions. Over the past two years C3 has strategically positioned itself for success coming into a rising copper market through the following key corporate initiatives:

    • Assembled a new highly experienced board and management team with an extensive track record of value creation
    • Built a solid supportive share register of predominantly long term value driven shareholders 
    • Commercialised non-core projects for cash and shares
