The Project is located approximately 377 km south by road from Lima, 95 km from the coast, and is accessible year-round by paved road. the 2,900-hectare Auquis copper project was selected for staking based on results of historical multi-element geochemistry and anomalies that extend over 3.5km x 2.0km.
Auquis is located within the Coastal Copper Belt, where recent discoveries include copper porphyry, VMS, IOCG and intrusion-related gold deposits.
The Auquis project is a copper-molybdenum porphyry exploration project that has multiple untested geochemical stream sediment anomalies, including a single target area measuring 3.5 km by 2.0 km where all stream sediment samples grade >300pmm copper. A total of 42 historical stream sediment samples contain multi-element anomalies across multiple drainages, with copper assay results ranging from 48.7 ppm to 607 ppm. A clearly defined metal zonation is evident in the stream sediment data across the survey area, with a central core of copper-molybdenum anomalies and distal silver and zinc-lead anomalies to the northeast.
