Highland Copper Company Inc. is a development-stage copper company. Highland's projects are located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, U.S.A., a well-established mine-friendly jurisdiction with over 150 years of copper mining history. During its productive period, from 1845 to 1995, the copper range district produced in excess of 15 billion pounds of copper.
Highland’s flagship project is the 100%-owned Copperwood Project for which Highland has completed a feasibility study reporting Proven and Probable Reserves of 25.4 M tonnes @ 1.43% Cu and 3.83 g/t Ag, containing 801.8 M lbs of copper and 3.1 M oz of silver. Highland has received all permits required to begin mine construction.
Highland also owns the UPX Property, a large land package with potential for several mineral deposit types acquired in May 2017 from the Rio Tinto group, and has entered into an agreement to acquire the White Pine Project located adjacent to the former White Pine mine that produced 4.5Bn lbs of copper over 43 years.
