The Volta Grande property covers over 160,000 hectares (1,600 km) within the “Tres Palmeiras" greenstone belt in the northeastern state of Para in Brazil, where small-scale miners have been active since the 1960s. This vastly underexplored greenstone belt has a strike length of approximately 120 kilometers, and a width varying from 1 to 8 kilometers. The projected Volta Grande mine plan, and current mineral resource and reserve area, covers only approximately one square kilometer of the property. To date, only approximately 10,000 meters of exploration drilling have been conducted outside of the mineral resource area (compared to approximately 200,000 meters within it). This preliminary exploration work has identified numerous gold occurrences and prospective future mineral growth targets, which will eventually be systematically drilled and explored.
