Los Andes Copper Ltd. Announces Completion of NSR Royalty Agreement with Resource Capital Fund






Los Andes Copper Ltd. (TSX-V: LA) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a net smelter return royalty agreement with Resource Capital Fund VI L.P for a total price of US$8 million, payable in tranches. The Royalty applies to the sale of all locatable minerals produced from the San Jose 1/3000 exploitation concession that forms part of the Company’s Vizcachitas Project in Chile. Under the Royalty, RCF will receive 0.98% NSR for open pit operations and 0.49% NSR for underground operations. 


Following this transaction, the overall NSR level for the San Jose Concession and for the other concessions covering the mineral resources of the Project is 2.00% for the open pit operations and 1.00% for the underground operations. The economic model presented in the Company’s Preliminary Economic Assessment dated June 13, 2019 already includes an NSR level of 2.00% for the open pit operations and 1.00% for the underground operations for all mineral resources.




  • Gross proceeds of US$8 million from RCF
    • US$1.5 million has been paid by RCF on closing and registration of documents in Chile
    • The remaining US$6.5 million is scheduled to be paid in four equal quarterly installments, the first of which is due on March 31, 2020
  • The financing will be primarily used to fund a Prefeasibility Study (“PFS”) for the Project and to prepare a baseline for the environmental approval package


Fernando Porcile, Executive Chairman, commented:

“I am delighted to announce the completion of this NSR royalty agreement which highlights the continued support from RCF to the Vizcachitas Project, and strongly positions the Company to continue successfully developing the Project.

Following the completion of the Project’s updated PEA, released in June 2019, the proceeds from this NSR will be used to advance work on the PFS, which has already commenced and is progressing well.


Further drilling programmes are also expected as part of the PFS and to explore prospective areas immediately surrounding the current mineralization. We are processing the environmental permits for this drilling.


Los Andes Copper Ltd. is a Canadian company focused on developing the Vizcachitas copper-molybdenum porphyry project in Chile.

The company owns 100% of the Vizcachitas project, one of the largest advanced copper deposits in the Americas. Vizcachitas is to become Chile’s next major copper mine. The project is a copper-molybdenum porphyry deposit, located 150 km north of Santiago, in an area of very good infrastructure.

The Project is currently undertaking a pre-feasibility study.
