The company CEO said it was important milestone for Chakana as it provides the necessary drill platforms to test numerous targets on the Soledad project.
Chakana Copper (TSXV:PERU) has reported that it has received final government approval of the semi-detailed environmental impact assessment (EIAsd) covering a portion of the Soledad copper-gold-silver project in Peru.
The release stated that the approval applies to the original area of the declaration of environmental impact (DIA) on the Soledad exploration permit and includes 120 additional drilling platforms.
President and CEO of Chakana Copper, David Kelley said:
“This is an important milestone for Chakana as it provides the necessary drill platforms to test numerous targets on the Soledad project. We are now able to apply for a modification to our existing permit to allow us to relocate platforms beyond the original permitted area, where several high priority targets exist, including the Huancarama breccia complex and the Paloma East and West breccia pipes. While we wait for the modification to be approved, we are busy completing detailed mapping, rock sampling, soil surveys and surface electromagnetic surveys to better prioritize future drill targets.”
