Bridging the canyon between copper and capital…

Cupric Canyon Capital ("Cupric") was established in 2010 to acquire undeveloped copper assets with a known resource, add value by taking the projects through the development process, and ultimately exit via a sale or IPO. The private equity company is backed by the investment banking division of Barclays Bank PLC through its Barclays Natural Resource Investments team.

Cupric’s management team has worked together at various times over the past 20 years and includes Tim Snider (Chairman), Dennis Bartlett (CEO), Lowell Shonk (Vice Chairman and Director), Steve Enders and David Naccarati (all directors). The team has extensive experience in all phases of the mining process from exploration to development and operations, and it has a unique blend of technical skills and company backgrounds.
