Camino optioned Los Chapitos in 2016 and owns 100%* of the entire expanded tenement area totalling approximately 22,000 hectares.  Exploration and drilling focused on the Adriana and Atajo zones began in 2017.  A total of 24,402 m of diamond and RC drilling were carried out on the project. The 2017/18 campaign was highly successful in identifying near-surface oxide copper manto and deeper structurally controlled high-grade sulphide mineralization.
