Episode 2

Yesterday the Company signed a contract for an airborne geophysics program to be undertaken over the 2,080 square kilometre The Lost Cities – Cutucu Project. The heliborne survey will measure magnetic and radiometric data that have proved to be very effective in identifying porphyry centres in the Cordillera del Condor that lies along trend immediately adjacent to The Lost Cities – Cutucu Project. Many of the porphyry centres in the Cordillera del Condor are mineralized, and mine construction has started on two of these copper-gold deposits.
