Hot Chili Ltd - Rooster Talk: Unveiling the giant copper deposit - Hot Chili
Managing director Christian Easterday reveals the latest metallurgical results

Hot Chili Limited (ASX:HCH) has partnered with a company that is owned by the Chilean Government - ENAMI. This partnership will allow 120,000 tonnes per annum of ore to be mined and processed at the Productora deposit.

The main asset of the company is Cortadora and its adjacent projects, San Antonio and Productora.

Metallurgical results

Managing director Christian Easterday shares with us about the latest metallurgical results released by the company.

The outcome of the tests has shown that the trio of projects - Productora, Cortadera and San Antonio - can be treated as one ore type.

This means that the processing of the ore can be done in one facility, which will allow the savings in treating the ore.

Next phase

The next phase for the company will be the release of the JORC resource which should cement Hot Chili as a viable copper producer with a Tier 1 project.

The fact that Hot Chili is not a major miner and is holding a project in the first quartile of best projects in the world is significant.

The sequence of events that will take the company to a major producer with a Tier-1 project will slowly unveil itself over the coming months.

Investors should take time to do research and take stock of what could happen if all the events were to come to fruition.
