TSXV: LMS) OTCQB: LMSQF) announces that it has acquired a 100% interest in three copper exploration projects totaling 5,000 hectares, located in the Coastal Copper Belt, Peru. The three projects (Loli, Tillo, and Para) (the " Projects ") are located approximately 130km southwest of the Company's Lacsha copper project, where recent exploration has identified extensive copper mineralization at surface and where the Company expects to complete an IP survey in January 2022 ( Figure 1 ).

The Projects were acquired by staking following completion of an extensive regional stream sediment survey, screening approximately 480 km 2 . The areas were selected based on consistent copper anomalies and geological similarities to the Lacsha - Yanba projects area.

Figure 1. Map showing the newly acquired Projects together with the extents of the regional stream sediment survey, which identified the target areas. The map also shows the location of land positions controlled by Buenaventura, Hochschild and others.

"We are delighted to further expand our footprint in this new portion of Peru's Coastal Copper Belt," stated Keith Henderson, President and CEO, "We continue to have success using regional screening tools to identify areas that we can acquire 100% through low-cost claim staking."

Stream Sediment Survey Details

The Company has completed a stream sediment survey covering 480 km 2 with 82 samples. With Copper values range from 28 ppm to 297 ppm located on open ground, the 11 catchments with the highest Copper values ranges from 138 -297ppm. Claims were staked based on clusters of anomalous stream sediments at Loli, Tillo and Para Projects.

Next Steps

Latin Metals is currently in discussions with the local communities who hold the surface rights, following which the Company expects to begin systematic surface exploration. As was the case at Lacsha, a talus survey program will be the first pass to identify the highest priority targets.

Coastal Copper Belt

The Coastal Copper Belt in Peru is a Cretaceous belt hosting a variety of deposit types including Porphyry, Epithermal, VMS and IOCG. Latin Metals' 100%-owned Lacsha copper-molybdenum, Yanba copper-molybdenum, and Auquis copper-gold projects are all located in the northern Lima-Ica portion of the coastal belt.


This stream sediment survey was designed and supervised by Eduardo Leon, the Company's Exploration Manager, who is responsible for all aspects of the work, including the quality control/quality assurance program. On-site personnel at the project rigorously collect and track samples which are then security sealed and shipped to the ALS laboratory in Lima. Samples used for the results described herein are prepared and analyzed by multi-element analysis using an inductively coupled mass spectrometer in compliance with industry standards.

Qualified Person

The technical content of this release has been approved for disclosure by Keith J. Henderson P.Geo, a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 and the Company's CEO. Mr. Henderson is not independent of the Company, as he is an employee of the Company and holds securities of the Company.

Latin Metals' Key Projects — Argentina

Organullo Gold Project

latin metals Organullo Gold Project

Latin Metals' Organullo gold project is 100-percent owned and consistent with the company's model; the project was acquired by staking at a minimal cost. The Organullo project includes almost 11,000m of historical drilling, in addition to rock and soil sampling geochemistry that has been conducted on the property.

Gold anomalies on the property have been shown to extend over approximately seven kilometers of strike length, defining one of the largest geochemical targets in Argentina. Only a small portion of this strike length has been tested by drilling to date.

Esperanza Copper-Gold Project

Latin Metals Argentina Projects Map

Argentina has a proven history of copper production, with 11 significant copper projects in the country's northwest region controlled by large mining companies. The Esperanza copper-gold project hosts an extensive copper-gold porphyry system exposed at the surface and extends to at least 400m depth. Latin Metals' most recent drill campaign returned 387m @ 0.57% copper and 0.27 g/t gold from the surface with mineralization open at depth.

The project is optioned to Libero Copper and Gold (TSX.V: LBC), who can earn a 70% interest by making payments to the underlying owner of US$1,900,000, cash payments of US$500,000 to Latin Metals, and incurring exploration expenditure of US$2,000,000.

Santa Cruz Properties

The Deseado Massif region of Santa Cruz is home to many advanced-stage exploration projects owned or operated by major mining companies. Since 1990, discoveries in this region have included almost 600 million ounces of silver and approximately 20 million ounces of gold. Latin Metals owns six properties in the Santa Cruz Province, all of which are close to known deposits or mines.

Mina Angela Property

Having completed the sale of the Mina Angela project to Patagonia Gold in Q2 2021, Latin Metals holds a 1.25% NSR royalty on future production. An additional US$500,000 cash payment is also due to Latin Metals on receipt of mine permits.

Latin Metals' Key Projects — Peru

Lacsha Project

The 100%-owned, 4,000-hectare Lacsha project is located within the Cretaceous age Coastal Copper Belt where discoveries include copper porphyry, VMS, IOCG and intrusion-related gold deposits. The project is prospective for copper-molybdenum porphyry. The project is located south and contiguous with Newmont's (TSX:NGT) Sumacwayra copper-molybdenum discovery.

The project was acquired by staking in 2020, and Latin Metals has moved quickly to complete surface exploration, resulting in the discovery of two large copper-molybdenum mineralized zones. Highlights include surface rock chip sampling, which has identified consistent copper mineralization at surface.

Latin Metals' Key Objectives

2021 Completed Deals:

  • Esperanza Copper Gold Project, Argentina – Optioned out to Libero Copper and Gold in US$4.5 million deal. Latin Metals retains 30% interest.
  • Mina Angela Gold Project, Argentina – Sale of asset for US$1.1 million. Latin Metals retains 1.25% royalty on future production.

2021 Objectives Going Forward:

  • Lacsha Copper-Molybdenum Project, Peru – complete surface mapping, geochemistry and geophysics to define drill targets. Permitting of initial drill tests to be completed prior to securing a partner to fund drill testing.
  • Organullo Gold Project, Argentina – secure option partner to complete substantial exploration program.
  • Auquis Copper-Gold Project, Peru – complete community agreement and commence surface exploration.
  • Santa Cruz Precious Metals Projects, Argentina — secure option partner to complete substantial exploration program.
  • El Quemado Lithium Project, Argentina – secure option partner of purchaser for the project.
  • Project Generation, Peru – identification and acquisition of additional exploration projects throughout Argentina and Peru
