World Copper Ltd.

World Copper Ltd., headquartered in Vancouver, BC, is a Canadian resource company focused on the exploration and development of its copper porphyry projects: Escalones and Cristal in Chile, and Zonia in Arizona. Two of these projects have estimated resources with significant soluble copper mineralization and compelling economics, and there are at least two other copper porphyry targets with exciting potential to expand the resource base.

"An internal technical review of World Copper Ltd.'s Zonia in Arizona has confirmed three potential growth drivers for the project, which include resource expansion from targets adjacent to the existing resource, a new porphyry target to the northeast of the existing resource and an updated preliminary economic assessment which is expected to include additional mineralization not factored previously, along with recent market conditions."

"World Copper Ltd. identified three targets with resource expansion potential at its Zonia project. Exploration is underway, and an updated preliminary economic assessment is expected."

"World Copper Ltd. announced that it has signed a letter of intent with Desaladora Rosario for the construction of a pipeline that would provide desalinated seawater to its 100%-owned flagship Escalones copper project. . .securing an adequate supply of water from a noncontinental source is a key derisking step for the development of the Escalones project."

"We are initiating coverage on World Copper Ltd. with a Buy rating and CA$2.15/share target price. The company is focused on advancing its flagship Escalones Cu project in Chile, where a recently published preliminary economic assessment (PEA) outlined an NPV8% of US$1.5B; World Copper also holds the PEA-stage Zonia Cu oxide project in Arizona and the Cristal Cu exploration project in northern Chile."

"A preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on World Copper Ltd.'s Escalones porphyry-skarn copper-gold project returned an after-tax NPV8% of $1.5B, and a high after-tax IRR of 46%, using $3.60/lb copper. The PEA was stronger than expected as capex/opex estimates are lower, and mine life is higher than our estimates."

"World Copper Ltd.'s Escalones preliminary economic assessment (PEA) outlines a 50 Ktpd open-pit operation producing about 2.3 Blb copper cathode over 20 years. We view this as a compelling PEA that demonstrates Escalones could support an oxide heap-leach operation."
