The Assay, Tech Metals Edition 2022, November 2022

Hot Chili is developing the large-scale Costa Fuego Project – a copper hub comprising two major copper deposits: Productora and Cortadera. Costa Fuego’s Total Indicated Resource is 725Mt grading 0.47% CuEq for 2.8Mt Cu, 2.6Moz Au, 10.5Moz Ag & 67kt Mo, and the Inferred Resource is 202Mt grading 0.36% CuEq for 0.6Mt Cu, 0.4Moz Au, 2.0Moz Ag and 13kt Mo. The deposits are 14km apart and within 50km of port, making it one of the lowest altitude major developments in the Americas.

Hot Chili is now trading on the TSXV, which is our natural home. The comparison of resource size and market cap amongst peers demonstrates the inherent value and the company is excited to debut this exciting investment opportunity to North American investors –TSXV: HCH.
