Chakana Copper Corp is a Canadian based minerals exploration company that is currently advancing the expanded Soledad copper-gold-silver project in the Ancash region of the highly prolific Miocene mineral belt of Peru. The Soledad Project consists of high-grade copper-gold-silver mineralization hosted in tourmaline breccia pipes. A total of 30,273m of drilling has been completed to-date, testing seven of twenty-three confirmed breccia pipes.
The company was recently granted final Peruvian Government approval of the Initiation of Activities for the Semi-detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIASD”) covering the central part of the expanded Soledad project (Fig. 1). This permit allows the company to expand and accelerate its exploration program into some of the highest priority areas that have demonstrated significant surface and geophysical anomalies that have not been previously drilled. A fully funded 15,000m exploration drill program is already defined and will focus on testing several high-priority targets.
