News Release – Vancouver, British Columbia – January 12, 2024: CopAur Minerals Inc. (“CopAur” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CPAU) (OTCQX:COPAF) is pleased to announce plans to initiate an integrated exploratory data analysis (EDA) and advanced machine learning study at the Company’s flagship Kinsley Mountain Gold Project (the “Kinsley Mountain Project” or “Kinsley Mountain”) in Elko County, Nevada.
Based on exceptionally high grade sulphide and near surface oxide drill intercepts, including 20.3 metres averaging 12.6 grams-per-tonne (g/t) gold (Au), and 26 metres averaging 2.22 g/t Au returned from its successful 10 hole, 2,287 metre 2023 Kinsley Mountain exploration campaign (Table 1), the Company plans to leverage its expansive exploration dataset comprising over 160,000 metres of drilling (Figure 1), in addition to a detailed 3D stratigraphic model, property wide soil and rock geochemistry, airborne and ground geophysical surveys (including ground IP/resistivity, gravity, and airborne VTEM/magnetics) to prepare an integrated exploratory data analysis (EDA) study.
The purposed of the EDA study is to advance the understanding of the Kinsley Mountain Project’s mineralization that will increase the efficiency and robustness of future exploration, targeting, resource definition, and development work. Following the EDA study, the combined exploration datasets will be subject to advanced machine learning algorithms to understand the complex multi-dimensional relationships between the data types leading to the generation of prospectivity models to drive discovery. The Company expect to initiate the study in early 2024, leading to results before end of Q2 2024.

CEO Jeremy Yaseniuk stated, “CopAur is poised to integrate cutting-edge AI technology within our exploration strategy at Kinsley Mountain. With an extensive dataset encompassing over 160,000 meters of drilling, we are committed to conducting a comprehensive Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) coupled with sophisticated machine learning techniques. Our objective is to develop refined prospectivity models, enhancing our capacity to uncover new mineral deposits. Drawing inspiration from the successful application of this technology by our associated group of companies through the Metals Group, including Emperor Metals Inc. EMP.V, Thesis Gold Inc. TAU.V and Founders Metals Inc, FDR.V, we are confident that the implementation of AI will significantly augment our exploration endeavors at CopAur.”
