Invert Announces Partnership with Adventus Mining and Salazar to Achieve a Net Zero Carbon Footprint at the Curipamba Copper-Gold Project in Ecuador

Partnership supports the pathway towards a True Net Zero mining future at Curipamba – covering Scopes 1 and 2 and ultimately Scope 3 greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions


Ottawa, March 23, 2022 – Invert Inc. (“Invert” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce it has been engaged by Adventus Mining Corporation (“Adventus”) (TSX-V: ADZN, OTCQX: ADVZF) and Salazar Resources Limited (“Salazar”) (TSXV: SRL) (OTCQX: SRLZF) to help develop a greener future for their Curipamba copper-gold project and its stakeholders in central Ecuador (“Curipamba” or the “project”).

In partnering with Adventus and Salazar, Invert will develop a pathway and set targets towards a True Net Zero mining future at Curipamba – covering Scopes 1 and 2 and ultimately Scope 3 greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions. The pathway will involve setting emissions reduction targets based on science-based methodologies and will build upon the robust ESG program and environmental licensing process already underway at Curipamba. Key partnership deliverables are expected to include:

  • GHG emissions inventory and forecast, including a life-of-mine model that will categorize scopes and activity types
  • Identification and quantification of emissions reduction strategies, by review of relevant technologies, target setting, and carbon risk management – including unique advantages and opportunities in Ecuador
  • Incorporate recommended emissions reduction initiatives that are in alignment with corporate and project objectives

Invert is focused on giving businesses and individuals alike the tools, information, and insight they need to make a meaningful impact on climate change. In addition to project funding and consumer engagement, we continue to offer our expert services to businesses who are looking to improve their carbon footprints.

Andre Fernandez, Co-CEO of Invert stated: “Invert is thrilled to partner with Adventus Mining as a trusted partner to achieve ambitious decarbonization targets that will make an impact to their stakeholders. We have deep technical expertise in mining, decarbonization, and climate change strategy – all of which will be leveraged to enhance Adventus Mining’s ESG goals in the years to come.”

President & CEO of Adventus Mining, Christian Kargl-Simard stated: “Copper is an essential part of the green energy transition and global decarbonization efforts. It is increasingly evident that as an aspiring producer, we have the responsibility and opportunity to align the Curipamba project with Ecuador’s global climate change contributions. We are pleased to partner with Invert on this endeavor and look forward to providing more detailed updates as this strategy is developed and implemented.”
