Phase One Drilling is Complete at the Soledad Copper Project | Chakana Copper Corp
Phase one drilling is now complete at Chakanas’ Soledad copper project in Peru
Chakana Copper Corp. is a Canadian based minerals exploration company. And through its wholly owned Peruvian subsidiary, Chakana Resources S.A.C., is currently advancing the Soledad Copper project near Aija.
Located in Ancash, a highly prolific area in the Cordillera Negra mountain range of Peru, the region has a long history of exploration and mining.
The Soledad Project is located in the Ancash province of central Peru, approximately 260 km north-northwest of Lima and 35 km south of Barrick’s Pierina mine (Fig. 1). The project is part of the Ticapampa-Aija Mining District in the Cordillera Negra.
Previous exploration identified numerous high grade quartz-tourmaline-sulfide breccia pipes at surface.
Although the mineralization hosted in the breccia pipes is impressive in terms of grade and vertical extent, previous explorers focused on a blind mineralized target inferred to be the source of the breccia mineralization.
However, now, Chakana focus is on testing the breccia pipes to determine if they host economic mineralization.
