Cornish Metals is a mineral exploration and development company focused on its United Downs copper-tin project and the South Crofty tin project in Cornwall, United Kingdom.

The company aims to capitalize on the increasing demand for ethically sourced tin and copper; metals fundamental to growth in the technology sector and transition to a low carbon economy.

The near-term strategy is to focus on exploration and delineation of the near-surface high-grade copper and tin mineralization at the United Downs project. Success at United Downs would be complemented by the option to build a new process plant at the fully permitted South Crofty project which could serve as a central processing facility for projects within reasonable transport distance.
