LLIPA is located in between Antamina and Cerro de Pasco and shows a strong potential for becoming a major poly-metallic open pit mine. The mine was previously in production and had already produced 1 million tons of tailings containing copper, gold, silver, and zinc which currently remain on the property.
Current Llipa Project
Two major mining concessions in Central Peru.
LLIPA project is constituted of two mining concessions: The Prospera mine and La Prospera XXI.
The mine follows the NW Mineralization Trend along with 2 poly-metallic mines: Antamina and Cerro de Pasco.
Antamina mine is a joint venture between Noranda, TeckCominco, BHP Billiton and the Mitsubishi Corp. Antamina is rich in gold, silver, copper and zinc, with mineral reserves of 501Mt. Antamina has a production capacity of 70,000 tonnes/day and is the largest single-circuit milling operation in the world.
Cerro de Pasco is an open pit mine owned by Volcan, covering over 61,000 hectares of poly-metallic mineral deposits.
