Celsius Resources is an exploration and development company with a portfolio of world-class copper-gold assets in the Philippines, together with an advanced cobalt asset in Namibia.

Celsius Resources is a mining exploration and development company with a portfolio of world-class copper-gold assets in the Philippines. The Company’s flagship project, Maalinao-Caigutan-Biyog (the “MCB Project”) is situated on the country’s main island of Luzon, just 320 km north of Manilla, with good access to key transport and export infrastructure.

This advanced, high-grade copper-gold deposit was previously held and extensively explored by the world’s third largest copper producer, Freeport McMoRan, with drill results indicating world-class potential.

Further strengthening its copper-gold position, Celsius Resources also owns two additional copper-gold projects: the Nabiga-a Prospect (the “Sagay Project”) and the Malangsa Prospect, also located in the Philippines.

With red hot demand for copper and new gold discoveries becoming increasingly rare, Celsius Resources is perfectly placed to capitalise on surging market growth.

Celsius Resources is perfectly placed to capitalise on surging market growth.
Since the mid-1960s, the global demand for refined copper has increased by over 250% and as global efforts to decarbonise economies ramp up, the demand for copper is expected to surge.

A key ingredient in wiring, pipes, batteries and motors, copper will underpin the unprecedented growth in new energy applications such as wind power, renewable power generators and electric vehicles (EVs).Copper is on a bull run with the commodity doubling over the past year.

In a signal of market confidence, the world’s biggest copper trader, Trafigura Group, expects the metal to enter a range of $12,000 to $15,000 a tonne over the coming decade as the green revolution takes hold

Celsius Resources is strategically positioned to capitalise on a ‘green’ commodity supercycle with additional interests in high grade cobalt, nickel and gold projects in politically stable Namibia and Australia.

The highly experienced Celsius Resources Board and Management team have a clearly defined strategy backed by unwavering commitment to deliver growth for Shareholders.
