Alvo Minerals: District-Scale Copper-Zinc VMS Project in Brazil

Alvo Minerals (ASX:ALV) focuses on a district-scale opportunity in an underexplored asset in Palmeiropolis region of central Brazil. The advanced-stage Palma project has produced exploration results that indicate high-grade copper-zinc deposits in a rich volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) zone. It has the right rocks to become a new VMS camp essential in global sources of copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold. The project is surrounded by active mines, including Lundin Mining’s Chapada copper-gold mine and Serra Verde’s REE project.

The Palma project was discovered in the 1970s, yet it has been idle for approximately 30 years. Once Alvo Minerals acquired the project, it became the first mining company to apply modern, systematic, and aggressive exploration techniques. A 2012 JORC inferred mineral resource estimate indicated 4.6 million tonnes at 1.0 percent copper, 3.9 percent zinc, 0.4 percent lead and 20 g/t silver. The company also recently released assays on the C3 deposit- with highlights including 7.0m @ 5.2 percent Cu, 8.0 percent Zn & 7.4m @ 2.2 percent Cu, and 23.1 percent Zn.

Company Highlights

  • Alvo Minerals is an exploration and development company with a district-scale project in Tocantins and Goias states, central Brazil.
  • Historic exploration programs have indicated high-grade copper-zinc deposits containing lead and silver. These results were confirmed in the 2012 JORC resource estimate that indicated 4.6 million tonnes of these metals.
  • The Palma project has received minimal attention since its discovery, and Alvo Minerals is the first explorer to apply modern and systematic exploration techniques.
  • Only the outcropping prospects in the Palma project have been drilled to date, leaving much of the VMS deposits unexplored.
  • Palma is surrounded by active mines, including Lundin Mining’s Chapada copper-gold mine and Serra Verde’s REE project. There are also major Nickel, gold and phosphate operating mines within the district.
  • The Palma project has robust infrastructure along with community and political support.

Top 5 ASX Copper Stocks of 2024

Copper prices have traded at record highs in recent years, and although the red metal is facing strong headwinds in 2024, experts have positive expectations for the market in the years ahead.

However, in the long term, many market watchers see tight supply and higher consumption from sectors like the electric vehicle industry creating a robust outlook for copper.

Against that backdrop, the top ASX copper stocks have put on impressive year-to-date share price performances. The list below outlines the top gainers, and was generated on February 13, 2024, using TradingView’s stock screener; all copper stocks listed had market caps above AU$50 million at that time.

Global VMS Deposits Make Attractive Investment Targets

Typically occurring as lenses of polymetallic massive sulfides, volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits are major sources of copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold.

These deposits are frequently regarded as potential 'elephant country' due to their tendency to occur in clusters within mining districts. Factor in their size and longevity, and it becomes clear why these deposits are so valuable to investors.

Particularly against a backdrop of price fluctuations and supply chain instability, VMS deposits can act as a financial cushion for an investment portfolio.
