ABOUT WORLD COPPER LTD.

World Copper Ltd., headquartered in Vancouver, BC, is a Canadian resource company focused the exploration and development of its copper porphyry projects:  Escalones and Cristal in Chile, and Zonia in Arizona.  Two of these projects have estimated resources with significant soluble copper mineralization, and there are at least two other copper porphyry targets with exciting potential to expand the resource base.  The Zonia project is being acquired as part of the previously announced merger transaction with Cardero Resource Corp.  Please refer to news releases dated June 9th, 2021 and April 20th, 2021 for more details and for the current status of the transaction.

About Escalones

The Escalones porphyry-skarn copper-gold project has estimated inferred resources of 426 million tonnes of 0.367% total copper within the oxidized zone, based on nearly 25,000m of drill core from 53 holes.  The 3.45 billion pounds of copper should be amenable to heap leaching with an average recovery of 71%.  The Company is focused on exploring the Mancha Amarilla target immediately to the south of the existing resource.    In addition, three significant hydrothermal alteration zones, each measuring between 2,000m and 3,000m in diameter, lie 8-10km to the north of the main discovery.

Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability as there is no certainty that all or any part of the resources will be converted into reserves.  Inferred resources are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling.  It is reasonably expected that the inferred resources could be upgraded to indicated resources with continued exploration.

About Zonia

The Zonia project is in Yavapai County, Arizona, and consists of 261 mineral claims and additional surface rights, all totaling 4,279.55 acres. It is a near-surface, copper-oxide resource and a brownfields site having already been mined in the late 1960s and ’70s.  The Project is at the PEA level and has been significantly de-risked with over 50,000 metres of drilling completed to date and with substantial amounts of detailed engineering completed. Further details can be found here.

The World Copper team has a unique skill in navigating the mining sector within Chile, with some members having worked in the country for more than 40 years and with discovery success.

World Copper Confirms Two Porphyry Copper Targets at Escalones Project

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE…Vancouver, British Columbia: World Copper Ltd. (“World Copper” or the “Company“; TSXV: WCU, OTCQB: WCUFF) announces exploration results from the northern targets at the Escalones Copper project (“Escalones” or the “Escalones Project”). Over a one-month period in the first half of 2021, World Copper collected 440 samples from three targets north of the main deposit at Escalones as part of a rock sampling and mapping program, and the results outline two significant porphyry copper targets.

Key Points

– Surface sampling programme confirms two copper-porphyry targets and one skarn target to the northeast of the main Escalones deposit

– The Rio Negro target produced five samples grading over 1% Cu and multiple samples returning over 0.5% Cu. It is considered a priority porphyry copper target for future drill programmes.

CEO Nolan Peterson commented, “The results from our surface sampling program, carried out earlier this year at Escalones, confirm that Escalones has the potential for multiple significant copper porphyry deposits in addition to the main resource. Data from the sampling program will be used in the near future to plan out the next phases of our exploration at Escalones on the Mancha Amarilla and Northern Targets.”

The Northern Escalones Targets

Geochemical sampling and mapping has now been completed by World Copper on a cluster of three distal copper targets (the “Northern Targets”), located eight to ten kilometres north of the main Escalones deposit and within the 162 km2 Escalones land package. Field work at the Northern Targets confirmed the large anomalies are intense quartz-sericite, argillic and gossanous alteration of porphyritic and granitic intrusions, as well as skarn in volcanic and sedimentary units (Figure 1). The Northern Targets have significant potential, with surface alteration zones on the same scale as that of the main Escalones deposit. Ridge and spur character rock sampling at an average spacing of 200m has defined two porphyry centres that are now considered drill targets. Rio Negro is the primary target, with excellent copper mineralization at surface and will be the priority for further exploration. The eastern target, Argüelles Este, is larger and more deeply weathered, and more sampling will be carried out to determine its potential. Sampling of the third target, Argüelles, was limited, and further work programmes by the Company are expected to follow up on this work.

Rio Negro Target

The Rio Negro target is a 2x2km argillic and quartz-sericite alteration zone within dacite/monzonite porphyries intruding clastic sedimentary rocks. Copper oxide mineralization is most apparent in the centre of the alteration where multiple samples returned over 5000 ppm (0.5%) copper, with five samples returning over 1% copper (Figures 2 and 3). This central area covers an area 800x1000m and will be a focus of more detailed geochemical sampling and mapping this field season.

Argüelles Este Target

The Argüelles Este target is a very large argillic and gossanous alteration zone two kilometres southeast of Rio Negro. The geochemical anomaly generated by the sampling is roughly three kilometres in diameter. Sporadic anomalous copper and molybdenum occurs along the western third of the anomaly, where sandstone and interbedded gypsum horizons are intruded by coarse feldspar-porphyry dikes similar to those as the main Escalones deposit. Associated anomalous metals suggest a higher level of erosion in a more deeply weathered system compared with Rio Negro, so more of the lithocap is preserved. A large (one kilometre) central area of the anomaly remains to be sampled and mapped.

Argüelles Target

Extensive skarn and calc-silicate alteration form a rugged, high ridge almost three kilometres long at the Argüelles target. Sampling was restricted to the accessible bases of the ridge, where a few samples on the west side returned values >1000 ppm Cu with anomalous Mo and Ag. The focus at the Argüelles target is narrow, high-grade mineralization, and this target will require more detailed sampling to determine the significance of the results.

Sampling and Assay Procedures; Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Character rock chips were collected within a 4m diameter circle every 200m along a traverse, mostly along ridges and spurs when topography allowed, mostly from outcrop but in places from talus beneath inaccessible outcrops. For quality assurance and control, field blanks were inserted every 20 samples and field duplicates (resampling at the same location) taken every 20 samples. The 4m character sample field duplicates have a precision of ±44%. Two georeferenced photos of each sample were taken and used to verify to the extent possible the assay results, sample locations and general geology.

Sample bags were stored in rice sacks, secured with zip ties, and delivered to ALS Patagonia S.A. in Santiago, Chile. Multi-elements were assayed using the ME-MS61 package, which includes 4-acid digestion and ICP-MS finish; samples with >10,000ppm copper were re-assayed using method ME-OG62 with an ICP-AES finish. Gold was done by method Au-ICP21, in which a 30g sample is fire-assayed and finished with ICP-AES.

Readers are cautioned that surface sampling results reported here should be viewed primarily as a guidance for future exploration drilling. Surface sampling is prone to sampling bias and is not necessarily a reliable indicator of mineralization at depth.
