Cerro Blanco

The Cerro Blanco Project is located in northern Chile, approximately 130 km southeast of the coastal port city of Antofagasta, and in a similar geologic setting to Spence (BHP) and Sierra Gorda (KGHM & Sumitomo) copper mines. 

The project targets partially outcropping porphyry and epithermal targets with post mineral gravel-covered (pampa) extensions. Work to date includes heli-borne magnetic survey, historical drilling and surface geochemical sampling. A significant magnetic anomaly partially underlays the Cerro Blanco hill and represents a magnetic intrusive center that is related to hydrothermal alteration seen at surface. Historical drilling has cut porphyry-style alteration; however alteration patterns are poorly understood to date. EMX believes this early-stage project has the components of a large porphyry copper system.

EMX acquired the property from Revelo Resources in 2020 (see EMX Press Release dated March 26, 2020). 

*Nearby mines and deposits provide context for the project, but do not necessarily indicate similar size, styles or grade of mineralization within the project.
