About South Pacific Metals Corp.

SPMC is an Asia-Pacific focused gold and copper exploration company with four highly prospective projects: KRL South, KRL North Kili Teke and the May River Project. All projects are located in premier exploration mining regions in Papua New Guinea. KRL South and KRL North are located in the prolific Kainantu Gold-Copper Mineral District, adjacent to K92's tenements where they are currently mining lode-gold deposits at their Kainantu Mine. Both KRL South and KRL North host porphyry copper-gold, epithermal-style gold mineralization and multiple coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies that warrant further work. Kili Teke is an advanced exploration project only 15 km from the world-class Porgera Gold Mine and hosts an existing Inferred mineral resource with multiple opportunities for expansion and further discovery. The May River Project is adjacent to the world-renowned Frieda River Copper-Gold Project, and historical drilling indicates there is potential for a significant copper-gold mineralized system. SPMC has a highly experienced leadership team with experience working together in the region and with established in-country partners.
