UNEARTH THE SOLUTION

WHY BRAZIL

The Carajás in Northern Brazil is A premier mineral province hosting the largest concentration of quality large tonnage IOCG deposits in the world. Discovered only in the 1960s, the region was little known. We have been on the ground for a decade, and this has allowed us to build up the second largest land holdings, second only to industry major Vale. For an aspiring mid-tier producer, the Carajás offers the perfect blend of high-grade deposits and an established infrastructure.

ANTAS

The deposit that is today the Antas Mine was discovered, developed, and is managed by Avanco. Antas is the ideal starter mine. It has good geology with high-grade mineralisation, lending itself to efficient and low-cost mining and processing techniques. All in a region blessed with established infrastructure and a mining savvy labour force.

PEDRA BRANCA

Pedra Branca is the company’s second project. It is made of two zones, East and West, which will take the company to 50,000 tonnes of annual copper production. The Eastern Zone will be developed first via an underground mine, targeting 24,000 tonnes of annual copper production. This will eventually be complemented by the Western Zone, by an open pit, and targeting an additional 10,000 tonnes of annual copper production.

REGIONAL EXPLORATION
TARGETS

Being the original Carajás pioneer with a decade on the ground, Avanco has pegged some of the best exploration ground in the region. Our portfolio of projects is the second largest, 100% owned, and covers over 1,800 square kilometres. Our in house exploration team, is working hard with a recently announced $10.6 budget to develop projects and explore our licences, hoping to replicate the success it has already demonstrated with the discovery on Antas.
