Chilean Copper Deposits

The Costa Fuego Project is a major copper mining hub in Region III on the Chilean coastal range. The most recent addition to this Chilean copper mining portfolio is the Cortadera deposit, one of the most significant copper-gold discoveries of the past decade in Chile.

Prior to the acquisition of Cortadera, Hot Chili’s primary focus was the development of the large-scale Productora copper-gold deposit. By combining Productora and Cortadera – lying just 14km apart and within 50km of port – Costa Fuego now embodies a combined Indicated and Inferred resource of 3.4 Mt of copper, 3.0 million ounces of gold and 80 kt of Molybdenum, making it one of the lowest altitude, major copper developments in the Americas.

In additional to these large-scale deposits, the El Fuego tenements encompass two historic Chilean copper mines – San Antonio & Valentina. These mines were two of the highest-grade underground mines in the region, however, these sites saw little in the way of modern exploration, and Hot Chile are actively exploring deposit extensions along strike and down plunge.  Located just 5km from the Cortadera deposit, the El Fuego deposits are in a prime location for high-grade resource addition and incorporation into the Costa Fuego hub.
