jl, the company have provided all of the data but check back though my recent posts.
It is good that you are looking closer. All opinions welcome.

Further to my post above #742 also of today*s date, Fri, 30 July 2021 I quote:

"MT OXIDE project is a HISTORIC copper DEPOSIT that has yielded multiple HIGH GRADE E E C O N O M I C copper intercepts. This dates back to 1914-15 when HISTORICAL MINING operations at BIG ONE are reported to have produced 9 . 4 cu."

"In the 1990*s B H P conducted an aerial survey & identified a SIZEABLE M A S S I V E sulphide A N O M A L Y at BIG ONE DEPOSIT with historic drill data verifying grades of UP TO 28.4 % CU from <50m in SUPERGENE ORE and excellent ECONOMIC INTERCEPTS."

"Western Australian Minerals conducted a 27 hole , 1673m RC drilling program at BIG ONE in 1993 & calculated a NON-COMPLIANT oxide target of 79KT at 2.2% cu."

"BIG ONE deposit was later M I N E D under lease 5481 and in 1997 yielded circ 4,400t of SUPERGENE ORE of 3.5% cu. While the output was sold to a nearby heap leach operation at Mt Cuthbert, mining operations are believed to have been suspended due to the downturn in base metal prices arising from the Asian financial crisis."

"The ARYA prospect has also been explored by B H P ...and although recommended by drilling BY BHP, that drilling never commenced."

"Since 2019, there has been a resurgence of interest in MT ISA COPPER BELT, with global weight heavy RIO TINTO APPLYING FOR MORE GROUND IN THE REGION, while MT ISA MINES & NEWMONT GOLD ALREADY HAVE SIGNIFICANT FOOTPRINTS."

FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION 2MEX. As everyone is aware, all drilling etc have to be lodged with the AUSTRALIAN MINES DEPT [GOV] prior to drilling and post drilling results. All results are LOGGED in and the govt dept usually publishes state resource/s deposit details etc. So, BHP*s details at Big One & Arya can also be checked with the Australian Mining Dept or with BHP themselves. BHP is currently the world*s largest miner by mkt cap.

Now, as said Capricorn copper mine belonging to Owen Hegarty under 29M is a nearish neighbour [per the link as above I gave, CCZ states so. CCZ also said the Big One is near LADY ANNIE which per online was sold to the Chinese.] So, not as if its in a jungle where its not a mining district and well known and all results logged.

I offered the PRIMA FACIE EVIDENCE and up to everyone to check further. One can get to the Australian mine dept to check or MINEDAT or any other Geo site which will provide that basic data as above. DYOR. Fri, 30 July 2021.

Today Fosterville South reported assay results in their Victoria, Oz project. They drilled quite a no of holes but they reported on the headlines ones. The grades and intervals has been posted on the London South East forum for CCZ. Charlie Stephenson retweeted the RNS/ANN so he is keeping abreast of Australian drilling results of the bigger and well known co*s in Australia.

Whilst Fosterville South is in Victoria [one of the 2 best successful co*s] & CCZ is in Qld, Australia, nevertheless, Fosterville South*s Director & COO has described them as "STRONG GOLD GRADES" and "LENGTHY INTERVALS."

20m @1.53 g/t au gold including 2m @7.05 g/t au.
6m @1.79 g/t au gold
29m @2.46 g/t au gold
28m @1.12 g/t au gold

Whilst Fosterville South*s drill results are gold and CCZ copper, nevertheless, gold grades ABOVE 1 g/t au are considered good whilst many of the world class projects like in Chile are 0.6 per Mr Colin Bird. Rio Tinto*s world class WINU in Paterson, WA, Oz has grades of around 0.45 % CU COPPER from recall [+-].

Even the intervals at CCZ compare very favourably with Fosterville South given this is more of a surface project rather than a prophyry going down to 1,000m and beyond. Big One , CCZ is NOT a porphyry.

Charlie Stephenson, Geo and Mining Specialist had said in his broker note of Jan 2021 that the CCZ ore could be TRUCKABLE. As said, Rockfire*s CEO said that TRUCKING can shave off double digit millions [substantial] from a project. Rockfire*s gold project is on the Qld coast vs CCZ a bit more inland also in Qld.

Mr Mark Biggs is the Competent Person & Geo for CCZ who signs off the RNS*s and reviews the data etc per the RNS details. From his Linkedin Mr Biggs has and is competent to sign JORC for some 32 yrs although his experience amounts to 39 yrs. Mr Biggs, like Mr Stephenson has a BSc in Geology including Masters in Geology.

Per 2mex: Post 741, 30 July 2021: "My opinion. THE DATA IS THERE TO BE FOUND."
Earlier, 2mex said "ITS A DUD." [Ref: ADVFN, 29 July 2021 @23:56, Post No #737]

As for opinion, is it a PROFESSIONAL OPINION ie that of a practising Geologist with BSc and Masters in Geology with the requisite no of years of experience or is it a layman? It is important given the opinion is "ITS A DUD."?

What is the DATA to prove it? The RNS*s have been reviewed and produced by Mr Biggs & Charlie Stephenson, Geo & Mining Specialist has been to the CCZ Big One as per norm and has given an interview + broker note. share price Angel has reported the 25 July 2021 results although they are not brokers to CCZ - no caveats issued by all of the recognised Geo*s and Mining Analysts.

The word "DUD" is NEVER USED IN GEOLOGY NOR IN ANY RNS*es issued by any mining co. Online definition states Dud means: "SLANG for anything that does not work or is defective."

Its early days in drilling of Big One. Nearby, CCZ stated on their website that the Big One is near LADY ANNIE & CAPRICORN MINE. Lady Annie has been SOLD to the Chinese. Capricorn Mine [Copper] has been bought by Owen Hegarty of EMR, a private equity co that is very well known. The Capricorn copper mine, Qld, Oz _+ WA mine + Chile has been injected into the recently listed 29M on the Oz ASX and currently has a MKT CAP OF OVER A$1 BILLION. For this reason, Mr Hegarty was interviewed by CNBC International given the IPO was a big one even by Oz standard -its on Twitter #ccz thread.

CCZ*s prospect itself has been a historic mine so it is IMPOSSIBLE THAT IT IS A DUD given it was NOT A HISTORIC DUD?

So, can one logically conclude that the opinion is NOT a professional one nor one from a nuanced and seasoned junior mining investor??? NO PROJECT IS A DUD IF THE DRILLING HAS GOOD ENOUGH INTERVALS & GRADES - it is whether it is ECONOMIC TO MINE OR NOT? No one can tell at this stage until the results come in and there is sufficient to produce a JORC or updated JORC if there is a historic resource.?

There are lots of people reading forums and it is fair on everyone to be able to have a BALANCED VIEW. So, the jury is out - is it a dud given there are NOT even enough drills completed yet at Stage 2 or is it a dud because X, y. or Z? No reasons given. Mr Bird has provided a CONCEPTUAL STUDY for XTR*s Racecourse, NSW, Australia based on the historic JORC and it sets out CAPEX, COPPER PRICE etc in 10 scenarios showing cash flow. This has been just modelled. So, without a geo model, a declaration it is a dud does appear to be from a layman with a guess?? Data? Can you kindly with due respect provide the data you quoted? A Conceptual Study is quicker than a Scoping Study, the former of which gives a quick look but it would need to go to more formal studies as norm later.

This post is caveated with "IT APPEARS."

My opinion. The data is there to be found. I am not on anyone's payroll.
I would be happy to be proven incorrect.

Exactly, Agree Fo77y.

On the 1 side, Charlie Stephenson, Geologist, SI Capital who wrote the broker note/s on CCZ + interviewed by Proactive Investors relating to the Big One, Qld, Oz drill of Jan 2021. This was followed up with an audio interview on the night of the latest CCZ 25 July 2021 results. Mr Stephenson was introduced by Proactive Investors as Mining Specialist. SI Capital is broker to CCZ. On open file, Mr Stephenson*s Linkedin states that he has a BSc in Geology from the UK including Master of Science [MSc]Mining Geology CSM. Mr Stephenson stated: "40m, OPEN PITTABLE. ORE BODY ECONOMIC TO MINE." Mr Stephenson has been out to the site as he implied in the interview and will go out again for the 2nd drill happening now. From one interview, Mr Stephenson has worked in exploration in Australia so he covered many places. On Twitter, he showed that he visited Cote d* Ivoire for IRR. IRR is now famous as they got a JV with Piedmont who will even pay for the Capex of the whole lithium project in Ghana plus other expenses and yet IRR retain a rather substantial 50 % of the project which one does not come across that often.

I have already mentioned S P ANGEL who covered the most recent CCZ 25 July 2021 drilling result. There were NO caveats from a No 1 mining analyst house in London??

2mex stated "its a dud" [now asked by Fo77y today, Fri, 30 July 2021 Post 739.]
Fo77y asked 2mex: "Why do you think it*s a dud?"

Yes, we, investors are all ears?

Fri, 30 July 2021. DYOR.

Arguments for and against it seems, i'm always open to both sides of the story, I've heard/read plenty in why it's promising but like to have balance. 2mex why do you think it's a dud?
Charlie Stephenson [Geologist], "Mining Specialist" interview with Proactive Investors, UK on the Big One [CCZ] relating to the Jan 2021 drilling:

"Castillo unveil "fantastic" copper discovery results from the Big One. Mining specialist Charlie Stephenson recently spoke about the results from a 35 hole RC drilling campaign."

Charlie Stephenson:
"40 m.
Get back. Cant wait to get out there.
Arya-system at depth. Could be very exciting.
Exciting coming few mths."
Link: hxxps://twitter.oom/CastilloCopper/status/354002646290608128 26.1.21
The time between 26 Jan 2021 and the current drilling at the Big One was due to the weather as norm out there. SI Broker also produced a Jan 2021 broker note which can be viewed on the Castillo website. Go to the Castillo Copper website by typing in this search title. Once there, hover over Investors and Analysts Reports and one will see the SI Broker Report. They said that the copper ore could be TRUCKED? Rockfire*s CEO enlightened that trucking ore saves double digit millions wherein his potential project is more towards the Queensland coast, Australia vs CCZ a bit more inland but in Queensland.
As norm, brokers send out their geologist to the site. So, Charlie Stephenson, Geo & Mining Specialist has been out in Qld for the 1st drill at CCZ*s Big One, Qld, Oz in Jan 2021. Presumably, he will be out again to the site per his said interview? share price Angel is not the broker for CCZ but they COVERED the latest Big One, Qld, Oz 25 July 2021 RESULTS . If they have anything to ADD OR COMMENT ON ANY SIGNIFICANT CAVEATS, they DO SO? This is norm? share price Angel of London is No 1 for copper, gold etc.

Fri, 30 July 2021.

The findings always seem to be "encouraging". An extension of mineralisation? Well technically yes.. commercially feasible? Its a dud.

They have played this with the carrot ahead being Arya. I believe it was only 3 diamond drills for Arya. No going back they need to get on with it.

CCZ - Https://
CCZ will remain hoping a major like Newcrest will take an interest. A cherry on the cake would be BHP or Newmont. However, results so far are too early stage but these hopes remain in place so far.
21 July 2021
Simon Paull, Managing Director of Castillo Copper, provides an update on significant early drilling results at Big One Deposit. All seven drill holes completed in the campaign so far have intersected visible copper mineralisation up to 34m thick. The drilling verifies extensions to known mineralisation and indicates the underlying system may potentially be larger than initially envisaged.

The future is in copper. Not crypto!
28 July 2021

Decided to increase holding as shares look oversold.
Seems like another unloved stock with lots of potential on the mkts list.
I'm puzzled,can anyone see any negatives in the last rns
Yep, copper currently up 4%. That's a big percentage daily rise for a base metal.
Well TD it never made "positive territory" this afternoon!
See what happens when Australia opens tonight. They weren't very enthusiastic last night. Follow their lead; they're closer to the action.

price of copper increases today, this decreases!
Good enough to get a few more and I have.
2mex if you're still here, would be interested in you're view of latest assay's, cheers in advance
PMF, always cautious on these hole diggers. It is looking good but they do have a poor record of over frothing. Always safer to wait for the full drill/assay picture.

Good to see the predictable selling the news. I guess that this will be back in positive territory this afternoon.
