Toronto-based Palamina Corp. (TSXV: PA) took one step forward regarding its 100%-owned Coasa gold project by submitting, this week, an Environmental Impact Declaration (DIA in Spanish) to the Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines. Such declaration is the primary environmental permit required prior to drilling.

The 17,200-hectare Coasa project is located in the Puno region of southeastern Peru and covers the town of Usicayos. It lies midway between the Ollachea and La Rinconada deposits, which are focused along a structurally deformed east-west trending jog-zone, part of a larger regional shear-zone.

In a press release, Palamina said that it has outlined an initial 3,000-metre drill program to test a couple of zones within the project, that is, the Veta and Phusca Zones.

"Once approved the DIA will enable Palamina to excavate trenches and complete up to 40 drilling platforms," the company's President, Andrew Thomson, said in the media brief.
