Copper, Gold Growth and Discovery in the Americas
Multiple-Times Growth and Discovery Potential
Solaris is responsibly and sustainably advancing a portfolio of copper and gold projects in the Americas. Our flagship Warintza project in Ecuador hosts a high-grade open pit resource within 5km trend of outcropping copper porphyry mineralization, with a number of untested, large-scale gold-in-soil and geophysical anomalies. We also expect to be drilling for discoveries at Tamarugo and Ricardo projects in Chile and Capricho and Paco Orco projects in Peru. All of our exploration programs were conceived by David Lowell (1928-2020), the World’s Greatest Explorer, who made more discoveries of greater consequence than anyone in history.
- David Lowell has made more discoveries of greater consequence than anyone in history, with over a dozen major discoveries, including the greatest of all time, La Escondida, which produced ~C$10B of copper last year.
- Assembled our portfolio of assets and designed programs led by his protégé, Jorge Fierro, the Company’s VP, Exploration.
- Lowell-Guilbert first defined porphyry deposit model. Its application led to David’s first discoveries (exposed deposits). He evolved his technique for a second wave of discoveries (obscured deposits); he’s now targeting blind discoveries.
