Project Details


The Arikepay property consists of two blocks of 1,800 and 2,200 ha. each one with sparsely exposed porphyry style alterations on surface. In 2011, Cobriza Metals conducted a reconnaissance mapping and sampling, reporting that highly anomalous copper, gold, and molybdenum geochemical results were returned from strongly altered and leached rock samples collected from an area of sparsely exposed outcrop. In 2012, the company started a campaign of 14 reverse circulation drill holes in the area. It obtained good results and a large copper-gold-silver porphyry system was discovered. Six of the 14 drill holes returned long intervals of significant copper-gold-silver. Main results of this work included 142m of 0.51% copper equivalent, 186m of 0.43% copper equivalent, 292m of 0.39% copper equivalent and 80m of 0.35% copper equivalent.
