• Southern extent of the porphyry rich Zamora copper gold metallogenic belt
• Various pulses of the Zamora Batholith
• Initial exploration has Cu soil anomaly and outcropping Cu-Mo veins
• Continued exploration and MAG surveys planned
Geology & Location
Tres Picachos is located in Zamora province at the southern end of the porphyry-rich Zamora Cu-Au metallogenic belt. Hybrid porphyry-style mineralization at Tres Picachos comprises magnetite vein (M-type vein) and tourmaline breccia-hosted copper sulphide mineralization assaying up to 9.87% Cu and up 56 ppm Ag.
Luminex's predecessor company, Odin Mining, intitally detected a soil Cu-anomaly at the base of a fault scarp that exhumes the M-types veins. Exploration in 2017 has gradually expanded upon the overall mineralized to the point that a 40 km ground magnetic survey is being programmed for Q4-2018. This 100 m spaced continuous magnetic survey will map out the array of M-veins and therby determine their density and appropriateness for follow-up grid-based soil sampling. An exploration camp have been constructed at the center of the concession.
