Solis Minerals has two large-scale copper exploration projects in Peru. Solis owns the Ilo Este and Ilo Norte projects in Peru’s southern coastal copper belt, prospective for porphyry and IOCG discoveries, with licences totalling 109 km2.
In Peru, Solis owns 100% in two copper projects located in the southern coastal copper belt of Peru, home to a significant proportion of Peru’s copper production. Ilo Norte is an IOCG target, with secondary high-grade skarn mineralisation, located just north of Southern Peru Copper’s Ilo Copper smelter and refinery. The 77km2 land package hosts a 10 kilometre-long alteration system, only partially tested by historical drilling. Ilo Este is a large eroded copper porphyry system with gold, silver and molybdenum. The 32km2 licences have a 3km2 area of geochemical anomalies, with numerous target areas being assessed.
