The Pacaska gold-copper project is one of Pucara’s largest land package and represents the potential for a multi-million ounce deposit. This high sulfidation gold/porphyry copper target sits on a 7,650 hectare property with a widespread mineralized footprint. To date, little exploration work has been completed on the property, however, Pucara is quickly advancing its exploration efforts.
The geology of Pacaska is analogous to various world-class deposits. Pictured left are 5 g/t gold samplings found within multi-stage vuggy silica breccias. This is the same type of mineralization found in deposits like the gold-copper Pierina Mine in Peru. Further rock sampling at Pacaksa has returned 7 g/t gold and 15% copper. In late 2019, Pucara completed an extensive shallow surface 300 line-km magnetometry geophysical program. With promising results to date, Pucara’s efforts are focused on advancing various drill-ready targets.
