Western Metallica Resources Corp. (“WMS”, or the “Company”) is a mineral exploration company headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, with six mineral assets across Peru and Spain, listed on the Toronto Venture Exchange under ticker symbol WMS.
WMS is developing a sizeable copper resource through an impressive package of assets, including two highly prospective exploration assets in La Libertad and Piura, Peru, and one past producing copper project located in Andalusia, Spain.
WMS properties are strategically located in mining-friendly jurisdictions, along geologically rich metallogenic belts known for gold and polymetallic mineralization.
WMS has acquired mineral claims, rights and interests in two copper-molybdenum porphyry prospective projects located in Peru; Caña Brava and Turmalina. These copper-based prospective projects lie on the Upper Cretaceous and Miocene (northern Peru-Ecuador) Cu-Mo porphyry belt, respectively, both located near the coast with good accessibility surrounding current claims allowing for future project scalability.
These occurrences extend for at least 900 kilometres along the Western Cordillera and the adjacent high plateaus province, defined by a large number of hydrothermal mineral deposits of different types.
WMS also holds 100% ownership of two gold projects in Asturias; Penedela and Valledor, and one copper project located in Andalusia; Nueva Celti. The Company has an additional gold property; Sierra Alta under option to earn 55%, located in Asturias.
WMS initiated a 2 Phase; 3,000-metre diamond drilling program during Q2-2023 at Nueva Celti, the Company’s priority copper project in Spain. WMS has also launched a first stage 1,000-metre, 5-hole, diamond drilling program at Sierra Alta.
WMS finalized an exploration program at its 100% owned Penedela Project. The 2022 exploration program included over 1,400 metres of drilling that targeted the most prospective areas of the Penedela gold deposit identified to date, which followed the successful acquisition of the Penedela property, permitting and NI 43-101 Technical Report.
WMS is comprised of a management team with in-country experience and international mining and geological experience.
