Vancouver, Canada – April 24, 2024 – Coppernico Metals Inc. (“Coppernico” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its Peruvian subsidiary Sombrero Minerales S.A.C. has now received all permits, including the water permit, required for drilling at its Sombrero Project ("Sombrero" or the "Project") in Peru (see Figure 1 for the permitted area). The Sombrero Project represents a rare exploration opportunity to potentially expand the prolific Andahuaylas-Yauri trend, host of world-class copper mines such as Las Bambas, Haquira, Los Chancas, Cotabambas, Constancia, Antapaccay, and Tintaya. Coppernico’s next step includes finalizing additional capital to fund drilling now that permits are secured.

Ivan Bebek, CEO of Coppernico commented, "Receiving the final permit puts the Company in a position to commence the first copper-focused exploration program at its Sombrero Project. We are thankful for the cooperation and the support of the local community as well as to our shareholders who have waited patiently for these permits."

Mr. Bebek added, "The timing of this milestone­ – obtaining drill permits after recently completing a 3-year surface access agreement with the local community – coincides very well with current rising copper prices which are supported by a strong outlook for copper."
