”It is an honour to welcome such well-renowned investors and to manage this Company that is clearly and steadily moving forward. The proceeds from this investment will be used predominantly for exploration of porphyry copper mineralisation at our Copperstone project area. More specifically, we will direct the investment for core drilling of our geophysical targets that the Company is currently developing. The NSAMT (Natural Source Audio-frequency Magnetotellurics) system has a strong track record internationally when it comes to discovering porphyry copper mineralisation. According to our knowledge, this is probably the first time this technique has been applied for exploration of porphyry-style mineralisation in Sweden.” comments Chris McKnight, CEO for Copperstone.
