Vancouver, BC – August 9, 2023 – Majuba Hill Copper Corp. (CSE: JUBA)(OTC:JUBAF)(FWB:4NP) (“Majuba Hill Copper” or the “Company”) is pleased to update shareholders on a milestone from the Fraser institute with regards to Nevada and the Majuba Hill Porphyry Copper Deposit (“Majuba”) in Pershing County, Nevada.
Nevada has been ranked first as the most attractive jurisdiction for mining investment globally with the highest PPI score of 100, as per the Annual Survey of Mining Companies conducted by the Fraser Institute. This prestigious ranking underscore Nevada’s prominence in the mining sector, surpassing other noteworthy regions like Western Australia, which ranked second, and Saskatchewan, which came in third.
The Fraser Institute’s comprehensive assessment and ranking system was authored by Julio Mejía and Elmira Aliakbari, which evaluates the appeal of various jurisdictions for mining investments, further highlights the growing significance of Nevada in the global mining landscape.
This is significant milestone to both Nevad and for Majuba and its shareholders and stakeholders. The Company recently filed an independent technical report titled “Technical Report for the Majuba Hill Copper Project, Pershing County, Nevada, USA”, outlining an exploration target of 100,000,000 tonnes with a potential to host up to 660,000,000 pounds of Copper at Majuba. The possibility to expand that target remains open in all directions of the project.
“Nevada’s prestigious ranking by the Fraser Institute is a testament to the promising potential and significance of the region for copper mining. The exceptional findings from Majuba Hill’s drill results underscore Nevada’s standing in the mining world. Our recent intercepts are the longest ever for copper mineralization at Majuba, underpinning the robustness and value of this porphyry project. Majuba Hill’s commitment to enhancing copper supplies becomes even more critical considering the forecasted copper deficit from 2026 onward. We are proud of our contributions and excited about the positive trajectory of our endeavors in Nevada, a top-tier mining jurisdiction.” – David Greenway, CEO of Majuba Hill Copper Corp.

Majuba Hill Mineral Expansion Plans
The copper block model has revealed significant northeast-southwest corridors associated with both intermediate (0.05 to 0.5% Cu) and high-grade (>0.5% Cu) copper mineralization.
Copper mineralization remains open in all directions. Recent geologic mapping to the west and southwest of Conceptual Pits 13, 42, and 56 has been very successful in delineating prominent northeast and northwest trending zones.
The Company geologists have determined locations for 15 to 20 core and reverse circulation (“RC”) holes. Planned drill holes are situated to improve the grade of the copper mineralization by tightening up the drill spacing adjacent to the favorable geology. The primary objective of the drilling is to convert the mineralization from an exploration target category into the inferred and indicated resource categories.
