World Copper (TSXV: WCU; US-OTC: WCUFF) is making headway on developing low-cost, oxide-resource-based copper projects in Chile and the United States, CEO Nolan Peterson told The Northern Miner in a recent interview.

A relative newcomer to the copper exploration and development sector, it has already outlined an alternative economic development case for the Escalones project in Chile, and it is set to add an even more advanced asset, the preliminary economic study-level Zonia copper-oxide project in central Arizona to its portfolio before year-end.

World Copper was created by founder Henk van Alphen, who has a long history in the mining industry. He has built successive mining success stories that have, over the years, created millions of dollars in shareholder value.

“We’re looking to replicate that success,” Peterson said in a recent interview.
