Sediment Hosted Copper

Latin Metals' exploration efforts are focused on sediment-hosted copper deposits within the Salta and Jujuy provinces of northwest Argentina. Holding over 500,000 hectares of 100%-owned prospective land, the company targets the development of high-grade and large-tonnage copper deposits, attractive for potential partnerships with major companies.

Project Highlights:

First Mover Advantage: Latin Metals possesses a dominant land position, with over 90% of the prospective ground in the region.

Extensive Exploration Opportunity: The projects, including Mirador, Ventana, Solario, and Terraza, are situated in areas characterized by favorable geological settings similar to the world-renowned copper belts in Central Africa and Europe, yet remain largely underexplored.

Comprehensive Exploration Strategy: Plans for 2024 include stream sediment screening across all projects, with approximately 60% of the Mirador project already completed. Additional methods such as rock chip sampling, regional geophysics, and hyperspectral surveys are planned to identify and prioritize target areas.

Infrastructure and Access: Projects benefit from road accessibility and proximity to essential infrastructure, facilitating year-round exploration activities.

Project Details

Mirador Copper Project: Covering 99,000 hectares, the project shows potential for sediment-hosted copper mineralization, with preliminary reconnaissance confirming the presence of copper and significant exploration potential due to its geological characteristics and under-explored status.

Additional Projects: The Ventana, Solario, and Terraza projects further expand Latin Metals' exploration footprint, each offering unique geological features conducive to hosting significant copper deposits.

Exploration Criteria and Next Steps

The exploration strategy is grounded in identifying favorable host rocks, structural controls, and redox boundaries within the Salta Group formations. Geochemical pathfinders, hyperspectral surveys, geophysical techniques, and structural assessments are integral to the systematic exploration approach aimed at uncovering sediment-hosted copper deposits.
