On November 27, 2017, Crown announced that it has retained Tetra Tech to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on its Moonlight-Superior Copper Project. The PEA will be done solely on the Moonlight deposit. Further details of the Moonlight resource can be found in the Technical Report on the Moonlight Copper Property dated April 12, 2007 at Further details of the Superior and Engels resource can be found in the Technical Report on the Superior Project dated November 7, 2014 filed on SEDAR which also discloses a historical resource estimate for the fourth deposit.

Copper Demand Will Exceed Current Supply

  • Demand for electricity, and therefore copper grows virtually every year
  • By 2050, urban population will double to 6 billion as global population grows to 9 billion
  • 30% of the world still has little or no electricity
  • The USA uses 15 MWh per capita per year, and China only uses 3.5 MWh per capita per year
  • China’s electricity grid, similar in size to the USA’s, will require 15 million tonnes of copper as it doubles by 2025
  • Electrical vehicles use 60 kg of copper versus 20 kg in a traditional vehicle (100M/units/year)
  • Renewable energy uses 3-6 times as much copper per traditional MWh of installed capacity
  • Battery farms have copper requirements of up to 3 tonnes/MWh

Crown's Objectives

  • Finish Metallurgical & Production Studies
  • Minimize share dilution until markets recover
  • Partner with a copper miner in 2018

Investment Summary

  • Indicated Resource of 1 billion pounds of copper plus Inferred Resource of 1 billion pounds of copper
    • Crown is trading at 1/5th of a cent per pound of copper
    • Undervalued relative to the Company’s peer group
    • No exploration risk
    • Safe jurisdiction
  • Upside triggers are at hand
    • Production studies in Feb 2018 will unlock value
    • The Company’s deposit size and location will attract suitors in a copper recovery
    • A small float and low market cap will boost buying impact in a market recovery
  • Management ownership (25%) ensures shareholder focus
