Kutcho Copper Corp. is a Canadian resource development company focused on expanding and developing the Kutcho high grade copper-zinc project in northern British Columbia, Canada. Committed to social responsibility and the highest environmental standards, the Company intends to progress the Kutcho Project through feasibility and permitting to a positive construction decision.

Projects in Hand

Kutcho Copper-Zinc Project, Northern British Columbia

Kutcho Copper Corp. acquired 100% ownership of the Kutcho high grade copper-zinc development project in December 2017 from Capstone Mining Corp. The Kutcho property is located approximately 100 km east of Dease Lake in the Liard mining division of northern British Columbia, and consists of one mining lease and 46 mineral exploration claims covering an area of approximately 17,060 hectares. Project accessed by airstrip and seasonal road from Hwy 37 which connects to Smithers and port facilities at Stewart.

Project Highlights

  • 100% owned high grade copper-zinc development project located in northern British Columbia, a top tier mining jurisdiction with major mines and active projects in Tahltan and Kaska territories, including Brucejack (Pretium), Red Chris (Imperial Metals) and Galore Creek (Teck/NovaGold)
  • High grade copper-zinc-gold-silver volcanic massive sulphide (“VMS”) system with a Probable Mineral Reserve (2017 estimate) of 10.4 Mt @ 2.01% Cu, 3.19% Zn, 34.61 g/t Ag and 0.37 g/t Au (2.92% CuEq)
  • 2017 updated Prefeasibility Study (“PFS”) demonstrates robust economics: after-tax NPV (8% discount rate) and IRR of C$265 million and 27.6% respectively with a manageable initial capex (incl. 15% contingency) of C$220.7 million
  • Significant potential for improvement through expansion of reserve/resources and a focused permitting effort

Production Statistics

Mine Life: 12 years
Production Rate: 2,500 tpd
Cu Recovery: 84.7%
Zn Recovery: 75.7%
LOM Cu Production: 378 Mlbs
LOM Zn Production: 473 Mlbs
Average Annual Cu Production: 33 Mlbs
Average Annual Zn Production: 46 Mlbs

Goal to double reserves from current 10.4 Mt through existing resource conversion

Existing Resource Conversion

  • Increased M&I Resources:
    • Lowering the resource cut-off grade from 1.5% to 1.0% Cu has increased M&I Resources at Main by ~50% or 5.0Mt with only a 14% decrease in grade
    • Additional M&I Resources are not included in the current 2017 PFS economics
  • Conversion of Inferred Resources:
    • Main Inferred Resource: 1.0Mt @ 2.21% CuEq
    • Sumac Inferred Resource: 4.8Mt @ 1.7% CuEq

Expansion Potential

  • Main Zone open down dip along ~60% of its strike length
  • Esso Zone open down dip along ~50% of its strike length
  • Define resources at Esso West and Main Footwall Zone

District Discovery Potential

  • Multiple repeated VMS sulphide horizons are under-explored
  • No significant exploration conducted on the property since 1990
  • VTEM survey proven to be highly successful at detecting known VMS sulphide mineralization
  • High priority targets: documented sulphide horizons; VTEM conductors; and strongly altered volcanic rocks

Kutcho Project Execution Timeline

  • Resource conversion & expansion drilling completed within 12 months
  • Feasibility Study completed within 18 months
  • Construction decision estimated within 30 months

The Company has re-initiated baseline studies at the Kutcho Project. The planned baseline program will continue with and confirm the environmental and socio-economic data that had been collected previously by Capstone Mining Corp.

Kutcho has also initiated engagement and consultation programs with First Nations, governments, and area stakeholders to discuss value components, opportunities, issues and concerns to ensure that development of the Kutcho Project will be undertaken in a responsible manner that considers all area interests.

Investment Highlights

  • 2017 PFS demonstrates robust economics
  • Low risk potential to double Mineral Reserves and significantly increase production capacity
  • A clear path to produce a feasibility study, complete permitting requirements and reach a construction decision
  • Wheaton Precious Metals stream establishes a basis for a strong partnership and lowers financial risk of the project (See details regarding the non-binding terms for a Precious Metals Purchase Agreement with Wheaton Precious Metals in the Company’s August 10, 2017 News Release)
  • Potential for additional discoveries through exploration
