Sierra de Varas

Sierra de Varas (previously Block 3) is an extensive property located within the Domeyko Corridor of northern Chile. Sierra de Varas sits approximately 55 km south-southwest of the world’s largest copper mine, La Escondida, which is also hosted in the Domeyko Corridor. Two known porphyry copper targets, Anaquena and Sierra de Varas, are located in concessions contiguous with or as third party holdings within the Sierra de Varas property, respectively. Regional magnetic survey data suggest that a magmatic intrusive complex is centered on the Sierra de Varas porphyry prospect, with extensions onto the property. Two prospective areas identified from the magnetics surveys have not been drill tested by any operators. 

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.
