Maria Cecilia is located 450 km north of Lima. The project is in a metallogenic environment in the Cordillera Negra mountain that trend NW-SE with similarities to metallogenic environments near other exploration properties and producing mines, such as Antamina 100km to the east (copper producer), Esperanza Project 70km to the southeast (lead-zinc-silver), Pashpap 40km to the northwest (copper resource), El Aguila 70km to the northeast (copper) and Pierina about 47km to the southeast (gold producer).
The metalliferous endowment is significant at Maria Cecila. The mineralization to the south at Emmanuel intersected copper with anomalous gold grades, such as drillhole EMM15-06 94.95m @ 0.21% Cu, 0.40 g/t Au, 1.49 g/t Ag and 77 ppm Mo starting 331 metres from surface. The NI43-101 resource at Emmanuel is 94 M tonnes at 0.29% Cueq.
The resource to the north in Toropunto (32 M tonnes @ 0.22% Cueq.) has surface sample anomalies with 6.04% Cu, 3.4 g/t Au, 305 g/t Ag, 1,700 Mo ppm. Drilling to the north shows anomalous grade intervals in hole TOR14-23 67.1m @ 0.72% Cu and 0.16 g/t Au starting 216 meters from surface. Drillhole TOR13-09 drilled 276m of 0.86 g/t Au and 0.15% Cu starting 76 metres from surface.
