About Handa Copper Corporation

The geological parallels between the RoC and the Central African Copperbelt (CACB), the world's richest copper province, have been recognized since the 1930s. However, sustained modern exploration has never been carried out on the former.

Previously undisclosed archival records acquired by the Company, which included more than 10,000 stream sediment and soil samples, confirm the potential for CACB-style copper deposits on the Company's exploration licenses in the RoC. In addition, new data from regional airborne magnetic surveys and geological mapping will assist the Company to effectively prioritize exploration targets for drilling in the second half of 2015.
