The 100%-owned, 4,000-hectare Lacsha project is located within the Cretaceous age Coastal Copper Belt where discoveries include copper porphyry, VMS, IOCG and intrusion-related gold deposits. The project is prospective for copper-molybdenum porphyry. The project is located south and contiguous with Newmont’s Sumacwayra copper-molybdenum discovery.
The project was acquired by staking in 2020 and Latin Metals has moved quickly to complete surface exploration, resulting in the discovery of two, large copper-molybdenum mineralized zones. Highlights include surface rock chip sampling which has identified consistent copper mineralization at surface.
