MT03 Copper Project joint venture
Latin recently signed an extension to acquisition terms with major global copper producer First Quantum Minerals Limited (TSE:FM) (OTCMKTS:FQVLF) (FQM) for the MT03/Pachamanca Copper Project indicating FQM’s intention to progress the joint venture program.
FQM will complete geophysical surveys at Latin’s large-scale MT03 (Pachamanca) copper project in Peru following which it may elect to earn an initial 51% of the project by completing 4,000 metres of drilling within six months of obtaining drilling approvals.
Total potential acquisition to 80% is possible should project move to ‘decision to mine’ and LRS will be free carried to that point.
The joint venture terms with a global copper producer of the calibre of FQM is a rare opportunity for Latin and is testament to the work carried out over time by the company in Peru.
