Berenguela is a resource-stage silver-copper project located in the Altiplano of south-eatern Peru. It is an epigenetic replacement Mn-Cu-Ag style deposit. The project has seen small scale production from a number of surface pits and underground from 1906 until 1958.
EMX holds a 1.0-1.25% NSR on the Berenguela project. Berenguela is a resource-stage silver-copper project located in the Altiplano of south-eastern Peru. It is an epithermal polymetallic carbonate-replacement style deposit being advanced by Aftermath Silver (TSX-V:AAG). The project has seen small scale production from a number of surface pits and underground from 1906 until 1958.
The project holds a 2018 JORC Mineral Resource* of:
- Measured & Indicated: 35.9 Mt at 85 g/t Ag, 0.79% Cu, 5.91% Mn, 0.3% Zn.
- Inferred: 9.97 Mt at 88 g/t Ag, 0.67% Cu, 2.14% Mn, 0.20% Zn.
Since optioning the project in 2020, Aftermath has completed an updated 2021 NI 43-101 Report and commenced an exploration drilling.
EMX believes this resource stage project has real potential and anticipates results from recent exploration drilling.
