Caravel Minerals (ASX:CVV)

Caravel Minerals (ASX:CVV)

Caravel Minerals (ASX:CVV) is a copper exploration and development company focused on a new porphyry copper district discovered in a previously unexplored part of Western Australia’s Central Wheatbelt.

In fact, the Caravel Copper Project is the largest copper resource in Western Australia – at 1.86 million tonnes contained copper at 0.28 percent cut-off.

The indicated and inferred resource – 662 million tonnes grading 0.28 percent copper — incorporates more than a decade of drilling data and the project has the potential to become a large-scale, long-life, low-cost copper producer with access to infrastructure and services.

Experts are predicting continued strong demand for copper, with the widening gap in supply spurring the price north in recent months. The growth in electrification and transition to renewable energy solutions is helping boost demand.
