BHP (ASX:BHP) Xplor Program: A Game-Changer

In a strategic move, Cobre has been selected to participate in the prestigious 2024 BHP Xplor Program. This program, designed by mining giant BHP, not only validates Cobre's capabilities but also opens doors to unprecedented opportunities for growth and collaboration.

Financial Boost from BHP

As part of the program, BHP commits to providing Cobre with AU$500,000 in non-dilutive funding. This financial infusion comes at a crucial juncture, empowering Cobre to advance its exploration plans on the Kalahari Copper Belt projects in Botswana.

Steady Year-to-Date Performance

Despite the recent surge, Cobre's stock has remained flat year-to-date as of the last close. This stability amidst market fluctuations reflects the company's resilience and strategic positioning.

Kalahari Copper Belt

Cobre's exploration plans on the Kalahari Copper Belt projects in Botswana hold immense promise. The funding from BHP will play a pivotal role in unlocking the potential of this resource-rich region.


In conclusion, Cobre's meteoric rise in shares, coupled with its inclusion in the BHP Xplor Program, paints a picture of a company riding the wave of success. The strategic partnership with BHP and the infusion of funds position Cobre for a promising future in the competitive mining industry.
