Viscaria Copper Project

In 2019, Copperstone acquired the Viscaria deposit in Kiruna, and Copperstone’s strategy was revised. Our goal is to become a modern and responsibly producing mining company through the reopening of the Viscaria mine. The deposit’s high level of copper and its geographical location provides excellent prerequisites to become an essential supplier of qualitative and responsibly produced copper – an important ingredient in the global shift towards an electrified society.

Geography and history

The Viscaria Project area is located approximately 3 km west of Kiruna town – close to crucial infrastructures such as the E10 highway, the Luleå-Kiruna-Narvik railway, and an established hydro-power grid. This geographical closeness makes Viscaria a strategic location for producing copper.

Arvidsjaur Project

The Arvidsjaur project (100% owned by Copperstone Resources) is located approximately 50km southeast of Arvidsjaur in the north of Sweden. Geologically, the project is hosted within volcanogenic supracrustal rocks of Paleoproterozoic age bound regionally by voluminous crystalline granite intrusions, which constitute the bedrock of the Fennoscandian Shield.
