Cortadera Rising: Big Vision in Big Copper

The Assay , Tech Metals Edition 2021 Oct 2021

Hot Chili is a copper company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: HCH). Our focus is copper exploration and development in Chile’s Atacama Region, and we aim to be one of the largest copper companies operating in the area.

Hot Chili has three key copper projects – Cortadera, Productora, and El Fuego – all located in close proximity to one another. In developing these projects, our copper exploration and development company seeks to create a new mining hub on the coastal range of the Chile called Costa Fuego. We believe this kind of project portfolio is unique among senior copper developers.

Current Projects

The Cortadera acquThe centerpiece of our copper company’s ambitious discovery program is our Cortadera copper-gold project. In addition to Cortadera, our Productora copper-gold project entered production in 2020 through a partnership agreement with Chilean government-owned ENAMI, and our El Fuego project encompasses two historic high-grade copper mines.
