Canadian firm Latin Metals Inc. has announced the acquisition of the Terraza copper exploration project located in the province of Jujuy, taking possession of 68,000 hectares rich in the red metal.

"Latin Metals' exploration efforts in northwest Argentina focus on understanding and unlocking the potential of sediment-hosted copper deposits in this promising region. The first stage involves conducting an extensive drainage survey, where the company plans to take more than 1,500 samples to assess and prioritize the entire territorial position", stated the company. This hands-on approach in the field is crucial for the development of emerging regions, and the samples will be accompanied by systematic prospecting, mapping, and sampling of mineralized outcrops.

Work programs at Terraza are designed and supervised by Eduardo León, the company's Exploration Manager, who will oversee all aspects of the work, including quality control and assurance of subsequent programs. "His experience and leadership ensure efficient and accurate execution of exploration activities, thus supporting Latin Metals' strategic objectives in the region," they noted.

This project adds to the company's existing copper assets in Argentina, including the mining centers Solario, Ventana, and Mirador in the province of Salta, as well as the Esperanza copper and gold porphyry project in the province of San Juan.

To date, the company's work in the country has included 196 sediment samples covering approximately 60% of the Mirador copper project located in Salta. The samples have been processed by a commercial laboratory, and the analysis of samples from mineralized rocks at Mirador is underway, with results expected soon.
