Cyprium recently showed strong savings in the publication of its restart study for the Nifty copper mine in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Coffee with Samso Episode 132 is with Barry Cahill, Executive Director of Cyprium Metals Ltd (ASX:CYM).

The time has come for Cyprium Metals to set the Nifty Story theme. The release of the Restart Study is, in fact, the beginning of what is about to happen as the company progresses down the mining and delivery path of copper plate.

In this episode of Coffee with Samso, Barry explains how the Cyprium business will take shape in the next 18 months. The company plans to be in production in 2023 and that is effectively shaped by this study.

Barry shares with us how the story will unfold with all approval stages completed and being submitted. The copper mining process is not an arduous process, and funding at this stage for start-up should not be an issue.
