Welcome To Quetzal Copper

North American Copper Exploration – Exploring for Grade & Scale

Three projects in British Columbia with Drill Testing in 2024 and 2025.

Copper is the New Oil

“World copper supplies are more concentrated than world oil supplies…three countries are responsible for 40% of the world’s oil. Only two countries are responsible for 38% of copper.

– Daniel Yergin, Pulitzer Prize Winning Author and Vice Chairman of S&P Global Market Intelligence

There are government supported tailwinds for copper consumption. Canada and the U.S. governments support copper demand with tax breaks and incentives. And the source of that copper matters. That’s why we want to be in North America.

Quetzal Copper’s projects are the kind that only become available in the deepest bear markets. They are easy to access, close to infrastructure, close to operating mines, and have millions of dollars spent on exploration. Quetzal brings the technical experience to interpret the data and identify the targets that will deliver the best risk to reward opportunities.

We have a strict guideline on what defines success. As you will see, these projects check all the boxes for reduced risk, high-reward exploration.

Modern mining exploration starts with the communities.

Quetzal Copper believes exploration and mining should always include community input. We strive to work with stakeholders at all levels. Our goal is to explore for copper responsibly and share our success with the communities we work in.

It is Time to Invest in Copper

As the world electrifies, its copper needs will intensify. Quetzal Copper will supply that demand.

At Quetzal, we use geoscience to identify opportunities that we can acquire and test quickly and cheaply. The questions we answer drive our potential for success.

There is a special kind of satisfaction in turning a great geologic concept into a discovery. You create value for your shareholders by doing good science. It’s something the Quetzal team knows how to do. Our geologists have that experience. We know how to do it and we intend to do it again.

Here’s a few important things you should know about copper

Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu. Atomic Number: 29. Atomic Weight: 63.546 AMU (atomic mass unit)

Copper comes from the Latin word cuprum, meaning “from the island of Cyprus.”

Copper is man’s oldest metal, dating back more than 10,000 years. A copper pendant discovered in what is now northern Iraq has been dated to about 8,700 B.C. For 5,000 years, it was the only metal known to man.

The Egyptians had so many uses of copper that they used the ankh symbol to denote copper in their system of hieroglyphs. Copper also represented eternal life in their culture.

The physical properties of copper are one of its most unique features. Other than gold, copper is the only metal that has natural color. Other metals are either gray or white.

Copper can be recycled without any loss in properties, making it a logical choice in an era of global sustainability. Roughly 8.7 million metric tons of copper are recycled every year.

Over 400 copper alloys are in use today. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, while bronze is an alloy of copper, tin, aluminum, silicon and beryllium. Nearly all the copper ever mined is still in curculation today.

While both aluminum and copper can be used as electric wire, aluminum can’t be used to make electric motors. Because aluminum has a lower electrical conductivity, it takes a larger diameter wire to move the same amount of electricity. That means the motors must be much larger and would generate more heat. That’s why copper is the metal of choice for electric motors.
