Solis Minerals is a Latin American focused mining exploration company. The Company recently acquired an option to purchase a 100% interest in the flagship Mostazal copper project in Chile's Atacama Desert, one of the world's premier copper production jurisdictions. The Company also holds a 100% interest in a package of highly prospective IOCG (iron-oxide-copper/gold) and porphyry copper projects in southwestern Peru within the country's prolific coastal copper belt – source of nearly half of Peru's copper production.

Investment Highlights

  • Three large scale, high quality projects
    • Recent acquisition in Chile, and two 100% owned projects in Peru.
  • Multi-kilometre porphyry target
    • Commenced drilling in January 2022 at Mostazal to test multi-kilometre interpreted porphyry feeder system, as well as enriched mantos-style surface layer.
  • Excellent capital structure
    • 60.4M shares outstanding, 30% insider ownership.
  • Experienced management
    • Former Sumitomo, Phelps Dodge, Hancock, with deep corporate and financial experience.

Projects in Hand

Mostazal Copper Project, Chile – Untapped Potential

The flagship Mostazal Copper Project is located 80 km northeast of Copiapo, Chile and within the Domeyko fault, which is a major structural control for some of the world's largest and most productive copper mines, including Chuquicamata and Escondida, and 40 km south of Codelco's El Salvador mine.

  • Interpreted classic large-scale porphyry system underlying high-grade copper mineralization at surface
  • Geological and geochemical studies with 60 drill holes totaling 11,000m focused on shallow mineralization
  • Historic resource reported of 10 million tons grading 0.95% copper, 8 g/t silver
  • Historic production of 120,000 tons at a copper grade of 1.8%
  • Drilling commenced in January 2022

The initial phase of drilling comprises four holes for an estimated 2,000m of drilling and will initially target both porphyry and manto-style copper mineralisation as well as the interpreted feeder system (porphyry) structures at depth.

Chief Executive Officer Jason Cubitt commented:

"Drilling of our initial campaign of diamond holes at Mostazal is progressing very well. We have intersected widespread copper sulphide mineralization in all three holes completed to date, with our latest hole, MODD003, the deepest hole drilled at the project thus far.”

"These first drill holes were designed to test the near-surface manto-style mineralization encountered in the historical drilling, and our logging has confirmed the presence of widespread alteration and disseminated copper sulphide mineralization throughout all three holes completed so far.”

Preliminary assessments of the core from MODD003 show copper sulphides over an interval of approximately 250 m starting from a depth of approximately 270 m, which appears to correlate with the core of the modelled geophysical IP chargeability anomaly.

Similar to holes MODD001 and MODD002, sulphide mineralization in MODD003 comprises chalcopyrite, chalcocite, plus or minus bornite occurring as amygdales, disseminations, fracture fillings or in veinlets throughout the sulphide zone.

While the Company is waiting for assay results from this initial phase of drilling, a program of detailed structural surface mapping and re-logging of the historical drill core will be initiated, with the aim of developing a more robust geological model for the extensive near-surface manto copper mineralization and supporting the estimation of a maiden JORC resource at Mostazal.

Ilo Norte and Ilo Este Copper Projects, Peru – Two Different Styles of Deposits

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 Project, Peru

  • 77 sq. km of licenses, just north of Southern Peru Copper's Ilo copper smelter & refinery
  • An IOCG (iron-oxide-copper/gold) target with high-grade skarn mineralization
  • Jurassic-age volcanic sediments
  • Hosts a 10 km-long alteration system
  • 15,348 m of historical drilling – including 0.93% Cu over 30 metres

Ilo Este Project, Peru

  • 32 sq. km of licenses, just east of Ilo smelter/refinery
  • Large eroded porphyry with gold, silver and molybdenum
  • Jurassic-age volcanic sediments
  • Mineralization mapped over 3 sq. km
  • 9,523 m of historical drilling

News Update

On April 7, 2022, Solis Minerals announced that it has completed the fourth hole in the first-phase drilling campaign at the Company's Mostazal copper project in Chile. All four holes have now successfully encountered broad zones of copper sulphide mineralization, for the most part starting from surface, supporting potential for the existence of a large copper system at Mostazal.

Logging of the Company's fourth diamond hole (MODD004) is now complete and indicates that the hole has intersected mainly porphyritic amygdaloidal and andesitic volcanic rocks, lesser volcanic breccia and aphanitic andesite to the bottom of the hole. Core logging highlighted widespread sulphide mineralization from traces to over 1 per cent sulphides observed from the surface to the bottom of the hole. The sulphide minerals observed include chalcopyrite, bornite, primary chalcocite and lesser pyrite.

While the Company awaits assays from the first four holes, it is currently conducting a more detailed and deeper-penetrating geophysical program, together with detailed structural and geological mapping, which, when combined with the pending assay results, will refine the targeting strategy for the second round of drilling at Mostazal.

On March 10, 2022, Solis Minerals announced that it has engaged Corporate Storytime to assist with the Company's investor relations and promotional activities, with a primary focus on the Australian market.
