About Us

Our Story

NorthWest is where community, the environment and responsible development co-exist. It is also our home. A location that shapes how we live, work and play. 

NorthWest Copper is a newly combined company creating an exciting, diversified copper-gold pipeline in British Columbia, Canada. A merger that transforms two early stage companies into a premier Canadian copper-gold explorer and developer. Contiguous projects now joined as one to realize new opportunity.

Our combination is brought together by a leadership team with an enviable track record in unlocking value through discovery, development and production – a proven approach that has rewarded investors, created meaningful employment and supported communities. As an Oxygen Capital company, we embrace this same disciplined business model that adheres to science, creative thinking, deep experience and community focus.

Our ultimate goal is to create outcomes beneficial to all. Mining is held both in high regard and to high standards in B.C. The province is a Tier 1 mining jurisdiction where Tier 1 operators meet some of the world’s strongest regulatory standards safeguarding the environment, health and safety. Responsible mining contributes to B.C.’s quality of life. In turn, the world needs responsibly mined metals like copper, gold and silver to help transition to a cleaner, low-carbon future.

We are perfectly aligned: proven developers focused on modern approaches to identifying and growing lasting value for shareholders and communities alike.
