The San Matias copper-gold project comprises 20,000ha of land located on the rich Mid-Cauca Belt in Colombia.

The project contains porphyry copper-gold mineralisation, copper-gold skarn mineralisation and gold-copper mineralisation.

At the San Matias project, porphyry mineralisation comprises high-grade zones of copper-gold mineralisation characterised by secondary biotite alteration, as well as numeorus orientations of sheeted and stockwork quartz-magnetite veins with chalcopyrite and bornite.

The inherent features of mineralisation procured from San Matias are similar to other large high-grade copper-gold deposits.
