Highland Copper Company Inc. is a Canadian mining company focused on exploring and developing copper projects within the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, U.S.A. Highland's portfolio of projects includes the recently acquired Copperwood project, the White Pine project and the Keweenaw project.
The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is well known for hosting significant concentrations of copper in copper-dominated deposits. During its productive period, from 1845 to 1977, the area produced in excess of 11 billion pounds of copper. It is one of the major copper mining districts in the United States and is truly worthy of the term, the "Copper Country".
Highland has put in place an experienced technical team with the objectives of confirming the historical resources on the White Pine and Copperwood projects and bringing them in the development stage by the end of 2014.
