Quaterra Resources Inc.

Quaterra Resources Inc. is a mining exploration and development company focused on advancing its key copper assets in Yerington, Nevada, a jurisdiction attractive to mining with low political risk. The company's Yerington projects have good existing infrastructure, valuable water rights, community support and significant exploration upside. The properties have the potential to be transformed into a district-scale, long-life copper mining operation. In June 2014, Quaterra, and its wholly owned subsidiary Singatse Peak Services LLC (SPS), entered into an option agreement with Freeport Nevada LLC. SPS intends to use proceeds from the agreement to explore and develop its Yerington assets.

Management Q&A: View From the Top
Steven Dischler
Few copper juniors hold the promise that Quaterra Resources does. Its 51 square miles in Nevada contains a past-producing mine. Its management is savvy and well seasoned. And it is backed by the strength of global player Freeport-McMoRan Nevada LLC.

"Quaterra Resources Inc. recently announced that Freeport-McMoRan Nevada LLC has committed $7.1M toward option payments over the next 12 months. The funds will be used to further delineate the Bear deposit in Nevada, which is very positive news for Quaterra. We are reiterating our Neutral rating and our target of $0.15 per share."

Teresa Matich, Resource Investing News (6/15/15)
"Last year, Quaterra Resources Inc. inked a deal with Freeport-McMoran Nevada for an option agreement worth up to $138M for its projects in the Yerington district of Nevada. On Monday, the company announced that Freeport Nevada LLC has completed stage 1 of the agreement and has committed to moving to stage 2. That means Freeport Nevada will make option payments of $7.1M over the next 12 months as Quaterra and Singatse Peak Services LLC explore the Bear deposit in Yerington."

"Today's announcement by Quaterra Resources Inc. that Freeport-McMoRan Nevada has committed $7.1M toward option payments over the next 12 months is certainly a welcome one for Quaterra investors. I have been associated with the company for the past 15 years and participated in its private placements. Two years ago I was elected to the Board of Directors. It appears that Yerington has the potential to become a world-class mine once again. The Bear deposit, a large porphyry copper system on the Yerington property, will now be explored with Freeport's decision to move into phase two. This will be a $7.1M program over the next 12 months run by Quaterra to explore the Bear. Of course Freeport, the world's largest copper producer, can opt out at any point in the future, but it can also spend up to $138M over a period of several years to earn a 75% interest in the property. How many companies with a market cap of $13M have a direct investment of almost $10M from a major mining company with little or no dilution to shareholders?

Hats off to Quaterra's CEO Steve Dischler and to Chairman Thomas Patton for their hard work in seeing this relationship with a major mining company begin to bloom. I own shares in Quaterra and in fact have never sold a share. From the viewpoint of the city of Yerington and state of Nevada, this agreement has benefits all round. Now it's time for Quaterra management to explore the Yerington property, which could become a major world-class copper resource." read more >
