This Canada-based exploration company makes headway in southeastern Peru as it completes a major milestone and releases more information on its biggest projects.
Palamina Corp. (PA:TSX.V; PLMNF:OTC.MKTS), a Canada-based precious metals exploration company, released information about developments that could propel the company forward. According to the company, Palamina is looking for the hard rock source of a modern day gold rush underway in Peru.
Palamina has acquired five district scale gold projects covering 77,000 hectares in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt in southeastern Peru: Coasa, Bendi, Gaban, Cori and Orco.
All five projects either have visible gold showings or there is visible gold being mined adjacent to them.
There are also 100,000 artisanal miners in the belt actively mining gold driving this modern day gold rush, the company stated.
Palamina Corp. initially went into Peru at the end of 2016. Management says 2017 was spent acquiring, visiting, assessing and prioritizing the land. It wasn't until 2018 that the company started systematic exploration.
First Heli-Borne Geophysical Surveys in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt (POGB)
In late October 2018, management announced the completion of heliborne geophysical surveys over its Coasa, Gaban and Cori projects. The company noted that in the POGB, gold mineralization frequently has an association with disseminated magnetic pyrrhotite hosted by quartz veins within regional shear zone structures.
Andrew Thomson, president of Palamina stated, "Palamina is the first company to conduct heli-borne geophysics in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt (POGB). The ~3,000 line-km survey is now complete, and we are awaiting the processed data to better understand the structures of the Coasa, Gaban and Cori gold projects."
While Palamina awaits the survey results, it shared news on its Gaban Gold Project and continues to advance its flagship Coasa Gold Project.
