Atico Mining is a Canadian-based company focused on developing and operating copper-gold projects in Latin America. Drawing on the extensive operational experience of management and directors in Latin America, the company's strategy is to build a mid-tier copper-gold producer by acquiring advanced-stage projects with potential for high-margin operations and sustainable organic growth.
Atico's principal project is the El Roble mine, located in Carmen de Atrato, Colombia. This operating underground mine has processed 1.5 million tonnes of copper-gold ore over the past 22 years. Recent evaluations by Atico have identified high-grade mineralization below the lowest production levels at El Roble and defined an inferred resource of 1.58 million tonnes grading 4.45% copper and 3.17 g/t gold.
With a deposit open at depth and along strike, the 6,679 hectare project supports management's objective of scaling-up production using newly discovered high-grade resources and El Roble's existing infrastructure.
