Sierra de las Minas


The Sierra de Las Minas project is located approximately 800 km northeast of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and 450 km northeast of Santiago de Chile (Chile); exactly southeast of the Province of La Rioja (Argentina). The project extends for approximately 4,000 hectares, which are divided into three exploration objectives: El Abra, JV14 and Aguero Maestro.

The studied area identified numerous gold occurrences hosted in mesothermal quartz veins. Some of them have been historically extracted at a small scale.

The project is located inside a north-south foliated-granite belt, roughly 70 km long and up to 13 km wide. Several gold deposits occur in the district in gold-quartz vein-shaped of mesothermal type. It should be pointed out that free gold occurs in the structures.
