Latin Metals Involves Three New Copper Exploration Projects, Coastal Copper Belt, Peru
TSXV: LMS) OTCQB: LMSQF) announces that it has acquired a 100% interest in three copper exploration projects totaling 5,000 hectares, located in the Coastal Copper Belt, Peru. The three projects (Loli, Tillo and Para) (the “Projects”) are located approximately 130 km southwest of the Company’s Lacsha copper project, where recent exploration has identified significant surface copper mineralization. and where the Company expects to complete a IP survey in January 2022 (Figure 1).
The projects were acquired by staking after the completion of a large regional stream sediment survey, examining approximately 480 km 2 . The areas were selected on the basis of consistent copper anomalies and geological similarities with the Lacsha – Yanba project area.

“We are delighted to further expand our presence in this new part of Peru’s coastal copper belt,” said Keith Henderson, President and CEO, “We continue to be successful using screening tools regions to identify areas that we can acquire 100% through claim staking.
Stream sediment survey details
The Company completed a stream sediment survey covering 480 km 2 with 82 samples. With copper values ranging from 28 ppm to 297 ppm located in open terrain, the 11 watersheds with the highest copper values range from 138 to 297 ppm. The claims were staked on the basis of groups of anomalous river sediments at the Loli, Tillo and Para projects.
Latin Metals is currently in talks with the local communities that hold the surface rights, following which the Company plans to begin systematic surface exploration. As was the case in Lacsha, a slope survey program will be the first pass to identify the highest priority targets.
Coastal Copper Belt
The Coastal Copper Belt in Peru is a Cretaceous belt that hosts a variety of deposit types, including porphyry, epithermal, VMS, and IOCG. The Lacsha copper-molybdenum, Yanba copper-molybdenum and Auquis copper-gold projects, 100% owned by Latin Metals, are all located in the northern Lima-Ica portion of the Coastal Belt.
QA / QC
This stream sediment survey was designed and supervised by Eduardo Leon, the company’s exploration director, who is responsible for all aspects of the work, including the quality control / assurance program. The on-site project staff collect and strictly monitor the samples which are then sealed and shipped to the ALS laboratory in Lima. Samples used for the results described here are prepared and analyzed by phased array analysis using an inductively coupled mass spectrometer in accordance with industry standards.
