Project Details


The silver-lead-zinc Chinchillas deposit is located in the Puna geological belt. Stratigraphy in the belt includes metamorphosed Proterozoic sediments in the basement, through Paleozoic marine back-arc sediments. Significant silver-lead-zinc mineralization occurs in four main areas at the Chinchillas property deposit, the Silver Mantos and Mantos Basement zones in the west part of the project, and the Socavon del Diablo and Socavon Basement zones in the east part.
