Chakana Copper Corp. is a Canadian-based minerals exploration company currently advancing the Soledad copper/gold/silver project near Aija, Peru, in the Ancash region of Peru’s highly prolific Miocene mineral belt. Chakana controls the Soledad project via its wholly-owned Peruvian subsidiary, Chakana Resources S.A.C. Chakana’s goal is to find and advance mineral projects to an economic resource within a single commodity cycle for further development by mid-tier and/or major mining companies. Chakana is highly selective in its approach, looking for de-risked projects that have the characteristics of large, above-average grade mineral systems with significant upside potential. Chakana employs the latest technological innovations to test the upside potential of projects with aggressively funded exploration programs. Chakana’s management team and Board have a proven track record of success in the minerals industry, from capital raising, exploration, discovery, development and monetization of assets through divestment.
Chakana’s flagship Soledad project features copper, gold and silver mineralization in the form of multiple breccia pipes that run right to surface. The company has already drilled several mineralized breccia pipes, encountering high grade copper, gold and silver mineralization, and its fully permitted 2020 drill program will test the many other outcropping mineralized structures that have yet to be drilled at the project. In it’s 2019 drill campaign, the company also discovered that there are additional mineralized breccia pipes at Soledad that are not outcropping at surface, providing further upside potential in addition to the surface-visible mineralized zones.
Presenting on behalf of Chakana Copper is David Kelley, Chakana’s President and CEO. David is an economic geologist and exploration geochemist, with more than 25 years of international experience throughout the Americans, Central Asia and Australasia.

Prior to this, he worked for Oz Minerals, Zinifex, Newmont, WMC, BHP, Westmont Mining and Gold Standard. David was directly involved in the discovery of the Zuun Mod molybdenum-copper deposit in Mongolia, the Wayamaga gold deposit in French Guiana, and the High Lake East VHMS deposit in Nunavut, Canada. Mr. Kelley received a B.Sc. degree in geology from Colorado State University in 1985 and an M.Sc. degree in geology / geochemistry from the Colorado School of Mines in 1989. He is a past President of both the Society of Economic Geologists Foundation and the Association of Applied Geochemists.
