El Roble Data

El Roble Information

  • Exploration 2015-10-13
    Since entering into the option agreement in January 2011 to acquire 90% of El Roble, Atico has aggressively explored the mine and surrounding claims. The Company has completed 11,740 meters of diamond drilling and identified numerous prospective targets for VMS deposits on the 6,679-hectare property. This exploration led to the discovery of high-grade copper and gold mineralization below the 2000 level, the lowest production level of the El Roble mine. Atico has developed a new adit access from the 1880 elevation to develop these new resources.
  • General 2015-05-10
    The El Roble mine is an underground copper, gold and silver mine and processing plant located in the Department of Choco in Colombia. Its commercial product is a copper concentrate with gold and silver by-product credits. With a previous nominal capacity of 400 tonnes per day, the mine has processed over the past twenty-two years, a total of over 1.5 million tonnes of ore at an average head grade of 2.6% copper and an estimated gold grade of 2.5g/t. Copper and gold mineralization at the El Roble property occurs in volcanogenic massive sulfide ("VMS") lenses.
  • Geology 2015-05-09
    The geology at the El Roble mine and nearby volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) mineral occurrences on the concession block include basalt flows, black to grey chert and overlying pelagic sedimentary rocks and sandstone-shale turbidites (Ortiz et al., 1990). Whole rock (NaO, K2O, MgO, FeO) analyses reported by Ortiz et al. (1990) PLACE the basalt flows in the tholeiitic field.
  • Exploration 2015-05-09
    The ongoing 5,000m underground drilling program is aimed at defining the newly discovered massive sulphide bodies below the 2,000m level, previously the lowest production level at the mine, to increase the current resource and test for occurrences of additional massive sulfide bodies at depth and along strike.
