Continues Exploration Focus on Canadian Copper Projects

Summary of exploration on Cascade’s five projects in Canada

2024 exploration focus on drilling at three of its five Copper Projects

Calgary, Alberta – February 15, 2024. Cascade Copper Corp. (CSE: “CASC”) (“Cascade” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce a summary of exploration results at its five copper projects in Canada. It is also pleased to introduce its 2024 exploration programs at all five projects, which includes drilling at three of the five and developing targets at the remaining two.

Jeff Ackert, Cascade’s President comments “Cascade has made some great progress at its copper projects during the 2023 season.  Having only listed the company on the CSE in April, I believe we have added value to all projects in a short period of time.  Our team has been able to bring a large amount of data together to produce a 3D database for three projects and has initiated the process on the remaining two. Initial field work has also provided new information with encouraging results. Our plans for 2024 include more ‘boots on the ground’ work and core drilling.”

2023 Highlights


• Listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the ticker CASC in April.
• Completion of an IPO financing of $1M.
• Acquisition of Copper Plateau for shares and Centrefire through an earn-in option.

Rogers Creek Copper-Gold Project

• Hyperspectral survey of historic drill core has been initiated.
• Drill permit application submitted.
• First Nations engagement with Samahquam.

Fire Mountain Copper-Gold Project

• 3D compilation including magnetic inversion modelling.
• Field work completed including hyperspectral study.
