May 30, 2024 – Quetzal Copper Corp. (TSXV: Q) (“Quetzal or the “Company”), a copper-focused exploration company, is pleased to announce that the Company, pursuant to the terms of the option agreement dated April 9, 2022, issued an aggregate of 3,623,290 common shares of Quetzal Copper.

Half of the share issuance will be restricted under the following schedule: 25% will be escrowed for five months and the remaining 25% will be escrowed for eleven months. 

CEO Matthew Badiali said, “We are pleased to issue these shares to our partner, Princeton Copper, for the Princeton Project. The Princeton Project is an outstanding 11,500-hectare property on the doorstep of Hudbay’s Copper Mountain Mine. The existing suite of drill targets offer us many shots on goal in one project. We look forward to the opportunity to drill this project in 2024.”

Princeton Property

The Princeton Project is an 11,500-hectare property located south of the town of Princeton British Columbia and adjacent to Hudbay’s Copper Mountain Mine. Extensive historical datasets compiled by the Quetzal include drilling, geochemical, and geophysical surveys. 

Quetzal recently reprocessed existing geophysical data (magnetic and IP surveys) collected between 2020 and 2022. The work refined three existing targets: Bud South, Knob Hill, and Aura. In addition, it identified a new, previously unidentified target called Contact. 

The targets demonstrate anomalous copper and gold in soils coincident with multi-parameter magnetic and IP geophysical anomalies. Only one target, Bud South, has been drilled (1987). One hole was completed on the fringe of the geophysical anomaly and encountered 10.5 m at 0.18% copper and 0.34 g/t gold. The core log describes potassic alteration with mineralization (magnetite, K-feldspar, pyrite, epidote, and chalcopyrite). The other copper porphyry targets on the project remain undrilled.
