Exploring in a world class Gold & Base Metal discovery enviroment
Alturas Minerals is an exploration company dedicated to the discovery of world-class gold and base metals deposits in Peru. The country´s enormous geological potential is well recognized and underscored by the continuing discovery of world-class orebodies.
Value creation for shareholders through minimizing risk
The Company’s strategy is to acquire high quality gold and base metal exploration properties in key mineral belts and explore them quickly and efficiently. Projects with good short term value creation potential are advanced aggressively and strategic partners are selected for those projects requiring longer term investment.
Maximizing the probability of Gold & Base Metal discovery
Alturas´s team generates new projects through a combination of advanced scientific prospectivity analysis and identification of key opportunities. With decades of exploration and discovery experience in Peru, the Alturas team has evaluated and filtered dozens of potential projects over the past four years. Twelve of the best properties have been acquired and now form the Alturas “pipeline” of high potential exploration projects.
How we explore our Gold & Base Metal properties
Alturas carefully assesses potential and reduces risks as projects advance along the exploration “pipeline”. Property exploration begins with definition of geological and mineralization models. Initial surface exploration aims to define the size and strength of the mineralization “footprint”. Projects with strong indications of mineralization and/or coincident anomalies receive a wide spaced phase one drilling campaign to demonstrate the extent and grade of mineralization. Areas with positive drilling results are slated for follow up drilling to further assess potential value. Subsequent systematic drilling is aimed at increasing confidence and projects with encouraging results are advanced into the resource definition stage.
