High Grade Silver-Dominant System
Santas Gloria comprises 3 concessions totalling 1100 hectares. Silver is the main target commodity. Underground channel sampling of accessible historical workings by Mantaro returned silver grades of up to >10,000 g/t Ag (ca. 320 oz/t Ag), up to 5% lead and up to 2.5 % zinc. Surface channel samples returned gold assays of up to 56 g/t.
Santas Gloria is located 40 km to the SW of the Casapalca-Toromocha camp. Mineralization at Santas Gloria is of an intermediate sulphidation epithermal type — as is typical of many of the underground mines in the area such as Austria Duvaz, Argentum, Yauliyacu and Casapalca.
Community Access Agreement Until 2028
The local community is pro-mining and an access agreement is in place until 2028. The community is currently providing support workers to assist with Mantaros field work.
Santas Gloria is located 55 kilometres directly to the east of Lima — a distance of 98 km by road for a travel time of approximately 3.5 hours. The area is typical Andean highland at an average altitude of 3300 metres. Access throughout much of the concession is good.
