Toronto-headquartered Palamina has re-sumed exploration of the company’s Lagos silver-copper project in Peru, and is proceeding with more sampling and mapping, a pole-dipole IP survey, and is launching an FTA environmental study to permit up to 20 drill pads.


Lagos covers a total area of some 10,300 hectares. The Peruvian project is at a 4,200-metre elevation, and Palamina says in a state-ment it provides “excellent infrastructure that includes road access, local power, water and a railway line that transverses the property.”


“Palamina's Lagos silver copper project sits at the juncture of the Santa Lucia mining district to the northeast and the Las Bambas cop-per trend to the northwest. During the rainy season Palamina is con-ducting further mapping and sampling, a pole dipole IP survey and an FTA environmental permit which allows for up to 20 drill pads,” said Andrew Thomson, the president of Palamina.
