The 2,000-hectare, 100%-owned Copper Project is in Peru’s Coastal Copper Belt. Tillo is located approximately 130km southwest of the Company’s Lacsha copper project, where recent exploration has identified extensive copper mineralization at surface.
Latin Metals’ work has begun with the geochemical sampling of soils and talus fines for 253 geochemical samples. Several anomalous samples have been delineated, including the largest zone, which measures approximately 2,500m x 1,000m in area. Within this zone, copper values range from 250 ppm to a peak of 1,050 ppm copper, with supporting molybdenum mineralization.
Mapping identifies porphyry-hosted copper mineralization and associated alteration signatures. Initial rock sampling returned copper grades ranging from 0.19% to 1.36% and associated molybdenum ranging from 5ppm to 94ppm.
