June 2022, Hudbay released a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for the Copper World Complex. The PEA announced an initial mineral resource estimate of 973 million flotation ore tonnes at 0.42% copper and Copper World Project 200 million leach ore tonnes at 0.36% copper. The PEA also announced 2.085% NSR Inferred Mineral Resources of 210 million flotation tonnes at 0.36% copper and 52 million leach tonnes at 0.40% copper. The resources are N 0 1 2 comprised of both oxide and sulphide mineralogy and are potentially km M amenable to heap leach and flotation processing, respectively.
