The 100%-owned 2,200-hectare Jacha project is located within the Southern Peru Copper Belt, a belt known for porphyry and skarn deposits and mines.
The project was acquired by staking in 2020. Historical soil sample data defines anomalous copper geochemistry over an area of approximately 3.0km by 1.5km. Historical IP data defines anomalies coincident with geochemistry.
A soil survey grid is in progress with samples being collected on a 200m x 200m grid and we are planning to cover at least 1,000 hectares with this phase I work. Each sample will be analyzed at our Lima office using a portable XRF instrument to determinate the principal copper-zinc-lead anomalies and highest-grade samples will be shipped to a laboratory for ICP analysis.
Sampling will be accompanied by detailed outcrop mapping and rock chip sampling.
