We control a high-quality portfolio of gold and silver exploration projects in mining friendly jurisdictions in the Americas which are strategically located in some of the most prospective and well-endowed belts of South America:
In addition, Austral Gold holds strategic equity investments in mining companies with exploration activities in other prolific mineral belts in North America:
Austral Gold’s exploration strategy is based on the following pillars to discover brownfield ounces and identify and consolidate third-party projects:
To identify areas that extend the life of mine (LOM) of our existing mines that have an installed production capacity based on two 1,500tpd agitation leaching plants in Argentina and Chile:
Guanaco - Amancaya, Chile.
Casposo - Manantiales, Argentina.
To identify areas that have large high-sulphidation (HS) gold and silver deposits potential based on the following geological criteria:
Gold endowment related to different styles of mineralization;
Favorable tectonic setting and presence of long-lived crustal-scale structures.
Widespread alteration related to the target type and beneficial age; and
Favorable erosion level.
