Highland Copper Company Inc. is a Canadian exploration company focused on exploring and developing copper projects in the "Copper Country" of the Keweenaw Peninsula within the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, U.S.A. In 2011, Highland and Keweenaw Copper Co. entered into a mining venture agreement under which they are entitled to earn a 65% interest in the Keweenaw Copper Project by spending $11,500,000 in development and exploration and completing a feasibility study by October 26, 2015. The Keweenaw Copper Project covers about 13,000 acres of mineral rights. Highland is well funded having completed a $16.5 million private placement in May 2012. Highland has put in place an experienced technical team and is conducting a drilling program with the objectives of validating the results of historic diamond drill holes covering a zone of chalcocite mineralization known as the 543S deposit and further exploring the potential of a 20-mile long chalcocite belt. Highland also intends to complete a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate in the first half of 2013.
