QC Copper and Gold (TSXV:QCCU – OTC:QCCUF) CEO Stephen Stewart provides an overview of the company’s newly defined Opemiska deposit in Chibougamau, Quebec.  The Opemiska Deposit consists of 81.7M tonnes @ 0.88% CuEq of pit constrained Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources and 21.3M tonnes @ 0.73% CuEq of Inferred Mineral Resources.  The Mineral Resource is pit-constrained and contains more than 532,000 tonnes or 1.17 billion lbs of copper and 816,000 ounces of gold in the Measured & Indicated (M&I) classification and an additional 109,000 tonnes or 240.3 million lbs of copper and 209,000 ounces of gold in the Inferred classification.  Over 82% of the total Mineral Resource reports to the M&I classification.  Within the larger Mineral Resource, the Company has identified a high-grade potential starter pit of 10.6M tonnes of M&I Mineral Resources grading 1.26% CuEq.  The Mineral Resources are pit constrained using pit optimization algorithms and a 0.2% CuEq cut-off, inclusive of US$3.50/lb copper and US$1,650/oz gold prices.  The Company has outlined multiple targets for expansion and discovery drilling this coming winter. These targets include extensional drilling to expand the existing Mineral Resource envelope, proximal former mines including the adjacent Cooke & Robitaille deposits, and other prospective targets along the Gwillim and Beaver Lake fault zones.

Stephen stated, “This is going to get bigger. There is no question about it.”…“Our shareholders, our followers can expect us through the balance of this year and obviously 2022 to get out there and expand this thing, expand in and around this super-pit”. Stephen believes that the Opemiska copper-gold deposit has the potential to be fast-tracked and built during this upcycle. Furthermore he believes that QC Copper & Gold has the potential to reach a valuation of multiple hundreds of millions of dollars whereas its valuation currently sits around C$27-30mm market capitalization.
