Project Overview

100% owned Gachala Property applications covering area of 13,280 hectares and cover 48-line kms of the 250km by 120km belt of Devonian Cretaceous rocks in geological setting conductive to sedimentary deposits, believed to be analogous to the Zambia Copper Belt of Africa.

Claims adjacent to west returned grades from 1.6% to 7.82% Cu in 12 of 47 samples taken.

Historic 4km long anomaly was identified on the west side of the Gachala Property.

Source: Rodriguez and Warden (1993). Overview of some Colombian gold deposits and their development potential. Universal Copper cautions copper mineralization on adjacent properties is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on the Company's property. Universal Copper has yet to verify historical information.

Gachala Sedimentary Copper Belt

Sedimentary hosted copper mineralization is generally flat lying near surface and is known to be extensive in Africa, Poland and Colombia, including the recently discovered Kamoa Deposits totaling 1.7 billion tons grading 2.5% copper. These copper deposits are generally higher grade than copper porphyry deposits.

Universal Copper has not verified the Kamoa information.

Why Gachala Compares To DRC

(Rodriguez and Warden, 1993) believe the Colombia Copperbelt has definite similarities to the Zambian (DRC) Copperbelt:

Universal Copper has not verified the Kamoa information.

LATAM Andean Copper Belt

Andean Copper Belt most prolific copper producing region in the world, producing 40.92% to 42.39% of world copper between 2011 and 2015.

(Rodriguez and Warden, 1993) believe the Colombia Copperbelt has definite similarities to the Zambian (DRC) Copperbelt:

The Andean Belt is the world’s number one copper producing belt.

Colombia encompasses the under-explored northern section of the richly endowed Andean Copper Belt and is a safe jurisdiction to explore:

  • Colombia is the longest standing South America democracy
  • Colombia has never expropriated mining lands
  • The "FARC" 2016 Peace agreement, officially ended 50 years of civil war in Colombia allowing free and safe access

Eastern Colombia is a prime geologic setting for sedimentary copper deposits:

  • Oxidized Devonian sediments & lower Cretaceous sediments
  • Oxidized & reduced Cretaceous sediments

The Colombia belt contains 300 known mineral occurrences within the Devonian through Cretaceous sequence:

  • Farallones de Medina 4 by 30km background to 14% Cu
  • Cano Negro 25km strike background to 13% Cu

Universal Copper has yet to verify historical information.

Gachala: The Next DRC

Universal Copper believes Colombia’s Gachala region hosts multiple copper deposits within an under explored 250km by 120km sedimentary belt analogous to the geological setting of the DRC copper deposits (Rodriguez and Warden, 1993).

The Gachala region is under explored due to:
  • FARC occupation
  • Peace agreement signed 2016
  • Heavy vegetation
  • Poor mapping
  • Difficulty identifying visual mineralization

Colombia: The Next Copper Frontier

Colombia Belt

The Gachala region hosts a sedimentary copper belt analogous to the Zambian (DRC) Copper Belt in Africa:

  • Similar geological setting, stratigraphy and structure
  • Copper mineralization extends for a length of over 250km by 120km
Universal Copper Property Assets

48km long section of 250km belt of sedimentary copper mineralization:

  • Copper mineralization adjacent to 13,280 hectare property assets
  • Historic sampling with 12 of 47 samples returning values from 1.6% to 7.82% Cu on ground contiguous to Universal Copper assets

Universal Copper cautions copper mineralization on adjacent properties is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on the Company's property. Universal Copper has yet to verify the historical information.

Exploration Looking Forward

Strengthen Geological Model By:
  • Systematic ground truthing of known Long Wave InfraRed Imaging (LWIR) anomalies
  • Mapping and sampling the favorable Cretaceous – Devonian contact throughout the Gachala copper belt
  • Developing multiple targets for significant drill program for systematic evaluation
Strategic Plan:
  • Confirm and document copper along favorable contacts throughout current land holdings
  • Develop drill targets for potential multiple deposit discoveries

Exploration In Progress

2019 program utilizing experienced in country geological team to:
  • Complete historical data compilation for entire 250km belt
  • Evaluate and prioritize current assets utilizing planned LWIR survey
  • Evaluate, prioritize and acquire additional assets utilizing geology and LWIR
  • Complete surface exploration and follow up trenching programs in advance of drilling
