VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 18, 2023 / Camino Corp. (TSXV:COR)(OTC:CAMZF)(WKN:A116E1) ('Camino' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce that it has received the first phase of its Start-of-Activities authorizations from the General Directorate of Mining (DGM) of the Ministry of Energy and Mines to begin earth moving activities at the Company's Los Chapitos copper project ('Los Chapitos' or the 'Project') in Peru. This authorization coincides with the Environmental Impact Study ('EIA') expansion that was received in June, 2023 that allows the Company to explore over an area of 6,012 hectares (see news release dated June 20, 2023).
The first phase covers approximately half of the EIA area; it is expected that the second phase will receive authorization in several months once a cultural review has been completed. The permit will enable Camino to commence road construction and preparations for its next exploration drilling campaign. Recent geological field work has identified new drilling targets over broad zones of potential mineralization to the south of Camino's main Adriana zone, and also to the north at the Lourdes Zone. Lourdes is a new copper discovery made in 2022 with broad intercepts of oxidized copper mineralization including 55 m at 0.93% Cu from surface (see news release dated September 7, 2022). The target zones are modelled around new interpretations and fault controls similar to geological features found in the copper-rich Candelaria district of Chile, where our partner Nittetsu Mining Co., Ltd. operates the Atacama Kozan mine. Drilling will target near-surface oxidized copper and will likely commence as early as December 2023.
'Recent geological mapping with our partner Nittetsu has identified broad areas to target new near-surface oxide copper. Nittetsu operates the Atacama Kozan mine in the prolific copper district of Candelaria, and our work over the summer included mapping with Chilean geologists who offer new ideas and bring their experience in the Candelaria district to our copper project in Peru', said Jay Chmelauskas, CEO of Camino. 'We are currently prioritizing drill targets for our next drilling campaign at our Los Chapitos copper project that we plan to launch as early as December.'
