Project Background
The Santander silver-lead-zinc mine project is located approximately 215 km by road from Lima, in the western extent of Peru's world-class Central Mineral Belt. The mine previously operated from 1958-1992 targeting a single Carbonate Replacement Deposit--type pipe and manto structure, the Santander Orebody.

Substantial site infrastructure includes a fully refurbished 200-man camp and associated support facilities, and the Tingo hydroelectric power-station located 17 km down-valley to the west. The Santander project and the considerable existing infrastructure form a highly strategic asset in this mining district. The Company commenced exploration at Santander in November 2007 discovering four new high-grade silver-lead-zinc replacement and massive sulphide bodies to date.
