The company also owns the Cerro Amarillo property, which hosts five clustered Cu porphyry intrusions and is located in the same mining camp that hosts El Teniente, Los Bronces and Los Pelambres. The company’s PEA for the Diablillos project is excepted before year-end.

Anaconda Mining Inc. (TSX:ANX) is a small-scale gold producer operating the Point Rousse project in Newfoundland, with a late-stage development project, Goldboro in Newfoundland.

The company has obtained 3 of 4 key permits required to undertake construction of the planned open pit mine, the last being for the Wetlands Protection Permit issued by the state. A Feasibility Study for the open pit mine is underway, and is expected to be completed in H2 2017. After construction, the transition into underground mining is being evaluated as a possible amendment, including a PFS specifically for the underground mine. A 4,600m infill and step-out drill program is currently underway and the company has released encouraging results for a growing resource base at their Back Forty project.
Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ARU) is an exploration stage company focused on the ~2,080 sq. km Lost Cities – Cutucu project in southeastern Ecuador. Historic Spanish literature suggests the Cordillera de Cutucu as the likely location of Sevilla del Oro and Logro ño de los Caballeros, two famous gold mining areas from the 16th and 17th centuries that have since been lost. The company completed a C$6.4 million financing in April in order to finance early exploration activities including geophysics in Q3 2017 and the company is expecting to drill their initial targets in 2018.
